Join us in this role where you’ll be part of a team of environment and consenting experts, working to build the world’s single biggest wind farm, Hornsea Project Three, providing a unique opportunity to develop your career in construction and offshore renewables. You'll help ensure offshore conditions are discharged and that the ambitious project demonstrates consenting best practise on a number of firsts in the industry, incl. compensation.

Welcome to Environment and Consents
You’ll be part of Construction Consents UK where you, together with your colleagues, will work with the Hornsea Project Three construction project. With a capacity of 2,852 MW, Hornsea Project Three will produce enough low-cost, clean, renewable electricity to power 3.2 million UK homes.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • managing consultants to deliver high-quality input to ensure discharge of conditions relating to the Development Consent Order and relevant marine licences
  • managing successful delivery and completion of offshore surveys and consultant deliverables
  • working collaboratively with internal stakeholders, especially the technical members of the construction team, cables installation team, and site investigations to successfully install infrastructure
  • proactively developing internal processes and carrying out lessons learned to set the best practice for construction of offshore wind farms
  • representing the project with key external stakeholders, incl. regulatory bodies.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have a background in delivering offshore consent or permissions, with any experience with offshore renewables being an advantage
  • understand the UK-wide relevant planning, licensing, and consenting regimes
  • have a bachelor's degree, or equivalent experience with specialism in a particular field, e.g., marine mammals, that can be applied in the context of this role
  • can work independently as well as part of a team and demonstrate the ability to lead on a specialist topic area when supported
  • can effectively communicate with a wide group of stakeholders, build good relationships, and explain technically complex issues in a clear manner
  • can deliver on time and to budget whilst managing the potentially competing demands of project priorities and stakeholder advice.
