Professionals

It is incredibly exciting to be working in such a rapidly changing industry! Yes, we need engineers but we also need communications teams, consultancies, forecasters, analysts, environmental surveyors and technology providers to ensure this critical industry keeps working safely and securely.

Energy and utilities industries are fundamental to the UK economy. To ensure they run smoothly, strong support functions are critical. Finance, HR, IT and Legal roles are all key to the efficiency of the sector.

You might be looking for a change career or returning to work after a career break. Whether you want to return to a familiar role, or experiment with something else, there are a whole host of opportunities on offer in the sector.

What is a ‘Returner programme’?

A returner programme is a perfect opportunity to restart your career after an extended break.  It can help you with a smooth transition into the corporate working environment and regain your confidence.

The Programme provides ALL candidates who have taken a career break of two years or more with opportunities to re-enter the STEM industry, this year we are broadening the criteria to include candidates who have had a role in STEM which has been directly impacted by Covid19.
