Imagine a future where you lead the electrical system design of some of the biggest offshore wind farms in the world in a pivotal and influential position

Join us in this role where you’ll be a power system expert focused on leading and coordinating the design and integration of our offshore wind farms with energy systems. The Electrical System Design and Grid Integration department plays a critical role in developing technically and commercially optimal wind farm designs.

Welcome to Electrical System Design & Grid Integration
You’ll be part of Power Systems Management where you, together with your colleagues, will join a growing and diverse global team engaged in offshore wind projects across the UK, Europe, the US, and Asia Pacific.

  • evaluating technical issues, developing solution options, reviewing technical documentation, and conducting power system studies where needed.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have a solid technical background in electric power system fundamentals, such as power system performance, design, analysis, or modelling, with a relevant education
  • can see the business impact of the electrical system design, such as opportunities and risks to project CAPEX, revenue, and schedule
