Imagine a future where you manage permit activities for our biggest offshore wind project in Korea

Join us in this role where you’ll be involved in a range of environmental and permitting topics to support ongoing environmental impact assessment (EIA) activities and other permitting processes in relation to offshore wind projects. This will include working with external partners in Korea, as well as internal colleagues in the APAC region and Europe, and assisting in consultations with local authorities and interest organisations.

  • supporting and collaborating with the consent manager in discussions with external stakeholders related to the permits process, incl. leading discussions with certain organisations, groups, and authorities
  • liaising with local consultants and contractors for in-country service delivery, e.g., the delivery of permit-related reports.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have obtained a university degree or higher in business, science, law, policy, or engineering
  • have in-depth knowledge of, and experience with, offshore and coastal permitting processes for offshore wind farms in South Korea
  • have experience delivering consenting work in multidisciplinary and multicultural teams in high-pressure environments
