Driving the marine renewable energy sector is at the very heart of The Crown Estate’s ongoing strategy. From the development of wind farms to the world’s first commercial wave and tidal stream energy programme, our extensive marine holdings put us at the forefront of exciting new industries. Join us and you can help us redefine the sector, stimulate the UK economy and make sure we lead the world in this exciting new technology. You’ll make a real difference and redefine your own career in the process.

We will look to you to ensure the commercial robustness of all aspects of our offshore wind programme, with specific responsibility for the commercial aspects of our development and property agreements with third parties. You will work closely with internal and external legal advisers on the development of our contract documentation and will lead the development of commercial policies, processes and guidance for the offshore wind team.

An MBA or a financial, accounting, legal or risk management qualification or accreditation would be a further advantage.
