Join the market leader in offshore wind and become Cost Engineer in the Costing Forms department where you’ll be responsible for the development of the CAPEX estimating tools that are used across our entire offshore wind project portfolio. These tools are used to form the backbone of the business case for our offshore wind projects and are a key driver in reducing the cost of energy.

We offer a unique and varied role where you’ll work across the offshore wind portfolio and have every opportunity to develop your knowledge, competences and skill set. You’ll be an integral part of a team with competent and committed colleagues who’ll support you along the way.

  • manage a variety of stakeholders from different disciplines
  • ensure compliance with established cost estimating processes, systems and industry best practice
  • ensure continuous focus on data quality and integration with IT tools and governance.

We currently work mainly in Excel but are also part of a company-wide Agile project to mature our IT platform, which integrates SQL and data analytics as well as other design and simulation tools used to optimise the budgeting process.

Your competences include that you

  • have a degree in engineering, business administration or finance
  • have experience working with cost estimation, preferably for complex infrastructure projects
  • have a proactive and structured approach to your work and a drive to handle complex tasks
  • have a high level of MS Excel competence
