We look for capable individuals who have a combination of academic achievements as well as an interest in engineering. So, if you’ve always been fascinated by how all things mechanical and electrical work, and you love taking them apart and putting them back together again, this apprenticeship could be perfect for you. It’s not about sitting in front of a computer screen. It’s about seeing how things work first hand. Working on wind turbines requires dedication from small teams to get the job done in what can be challenging conditions. First and foremost you should enjoy working together with others to achieve a common goal, some of the work can be physically demanding with requirements to climb up ladders with fall prevention safety equipment within the turbines so you should be comfortable with heights. Finally we need to access the turbines all year round so you should enjoy the outdoors and be prepared to spend time on vessels each day transferring from a harbour to the wind turbines. If you’re a good team player with that kind of passion – and you have at least five A/C Grades at GCSE in English, Maths and Science – we’d love to hear from you. We know your time is valuable, so check you’ve got the skills, experience and qualifications we’ve specified above. You’ll need to tell us how you meet these requirements in your application.

Job responsibilities

This apprenticeship will give you the chance to work on our UK fleet of offshore wind turbines. Your role will give you the chance to develop specific technical skills to allow you to work effectively on the inspection and overhaul of operational wind turbines and supporting equipment. You will be based at one of our world leading wind farms within the UK, travelling daily offshore with other technicians to keep the turbines turning to maximise the opportunity to produce low carbon electricity for the UK market. Your apprenticeship will consist of a combination of site based practical experience working with technician teams to keep the wind turbines turning and time spent developing specialist skills, either with us at our Engineering Academy, or direct from wind turbine manufacturers.
