Back to Careers in Offshore Wind.

The development phase of an offshore wind farm project involves consultation and undertaking a suite of surveys necessary for the planning application (consents) process. For this reason, we rely on the skills and expertise of those in biological fields to help inform the Environmental Impact Assessment. This ensures that the wind farm is designed to work as much in harmony with environment as possible, and that it meets all requirements set by the relevant government departments. As our project goes forward, throughout the design process we will be contracting consultants who are experienced in biological survey work for offshore wind farm projects.

Some of the job opportunities associated with offshore wind if your background is in Biological Sciences might include: 

  • Oceanographer
  • Hydrologist
  • Marine biologist 
  • Environmental scientist
  • Marine scientist
  • Marine ecologist
  • Marine ornithologist
