- You'll need knowledge and practical experience of working within a controlled safety environment, and an understanding of the management and oversight of well-established SSoW, WTSRs or equivalent; therefore, a background encompassing elements of safety management, as well as well-developed analytical and engineering skills will be necessary.

- You will have the opportunity to develop your understanding of offshore wind safety, operations and maintenance works, ultimately managing, reviewing and auditing safety led systems required by offshore working parties whilst acting as an SSE safety representative ensuring that key organisational objectives are met.
