Together with 13 committed and skilled colleagues, you will primarily assist with the coordination of our environmental impact assessments, planning applications and license consents and ensure that our wind farms are designed and built to fulfil our consent conditions and our environmental monitoring conditions.
In addition, you will contribute to the process concerning our environmental impact assessments, including review, edit and production of environmental statements for onshore and offshore wind farms.
Furthermore, your key duties will be to:
- handle communication with stakeholders and regulators to resolve environmental issues
- assist with environmental monitoring surveys, including scoping, tendering and commissioning
- assist with feasibility studies of new sites
- perform ad hoc duties for the management, such as taking minutes of meetings and arrange meetings
- assist with the assessment of technical documents and development of programmes.
You will hold a Bachelor of Science Degree within environmental science, environmental management, marine science or similar. It will be an advantage if you have a Master's or PhD Degree.
You will have a good understanding of environmental impact assessments and the onshore and offshore planning and licensing system in the United Kingdom. Furthermore, you will have a good understanding of the marine and terrestrial environmental issues and the techniques for performing onshore and offshore environmental surveys.
As we are an international company and cooperate closely with our colleagues, it is important that you have excellent communication skills and are able to write and speak English fluently. It is also important that you have the skills necessary to facilitate communication and cooperation with your colleagues and stakeholders, even in challenging situations.
Furthermore, you will have an analytical and structured approach to your work and the ability to work independently. You will thrive on teamwork and cooperation with other departments in the organisation and be enthusiastic and keen to learn.
A unique and challenging job in an international energy company. As part of a dynamic team with an informal atmosphere, you will have the opportunity to spar with competent colleagues.
Through your work, you will underpin the implementation of an ambitious strategy for further development of sustainable, CO2-free energy solutions.
