RENEWABLE Energy Careers
It’s an exciting time to be working within the renewable energy sector – as interest in renewable energy is high meaning career opportunities are plentiful. The good news is that there are still some companies who are willing to provide on the job training. There is currently a high demand for Wind Turbine Technicians – however, to be in with a chance of landing such an opportunity you will need a strong background in a related field.
Otherwise, a qualification in renewable engineering will put you in a strong position. Do bear in mind that most positions will require certain qualifications and licenses – most likely is a driving license as the role can involve driving between locations. Specific turbine qualifications – such as Wind Turbine Safety Rules (WTSRO) or Vestas certification are both good routes towards a career as a Wind Turbine Engineer. A graduate degree is also usually required.
Wind energy careers can be highly satisfying – but you’ll need to be fit, and not afraid of heights. This role isn’t all office-based, you’ll be expected to scale wind turbines. A CSCS Work at Heights card will also add to your strength as a candidate. Although some of a Wind Turbine Mechanic or Engineer’s role may be in the maintenance of existing turbines, you may also be involved in designing, developing and building new facilities, carrying out site inspections and surveys, performing feasibility studies and cost calculations. Plus you’ll have to keep up to date with legislation and environmental standards.
With a Wind Turbine Career, prospects are good – demand for operatives in this area is strong which means progression opportunities are also excellent. A move into other engineering areas is possible or a step up the ladder to a managerial role could also happen.
