The renewables industry is constantly growing, with more and more opportunities emerging in the UK. I strongly recommend becoming part of it - you can visit the RenewableUK career page for job opportunities and apprenticeships, attend career fairs or contact companies directly. Make sure your LinkedIn profile is active and up to date - it worked for me! No job is off-limits if you work hard and demonstrate what you can bring to a particular company.
I am responsible for ensuring Tekmar Energy's projects are delivered according to customer requirements, budget and most importantly on time. I have had the opportunity to work on some very high profile offshore wind projects and enjoy maintaining strong client relationships, which is a big part of the job and why I enjoy the role.
I spent 8 years working as a project engineer in the automotive industry before joining Tekmar Energy. Transitioning into the renewable sector was quite a change, but undoubtedly was the right move for me - renewables is a reasonably young industry with so much opportunity and learning.
