You’ll play an important role in:  

  • managing the design and engineering of all aspects of the onshore cable route, incl. onshore HDDs, ensuring that the design reflects international standards and contractual requirements 

  • preparing documentation for permitting with the technical solution, ensuring that the method and design for scope are both viable and comply with the required legal commitments 

  • leading the technical aspect of the procurement process, ensuring contractor engagement, and considering safety, quality, budget, schedule, etc., and leading interfaces with other work scopes 

  • providing technical expertise to support the project manager in decision making and its substantiation throughout the lifecycle of the project, incl. development, engineering, and construction. 

To succeed in the role, you:  

  • have proven experience within engineering or delivery of larger construction works 

  • are familiar with the principles of trenchless technology, incl. HDD for crossings 

  • have in-depth knowledge of civil engineering design and operation, incl. direct excavation of trenches within the onshore environment 

  • can work on numerous tasks, challenges, and projects simultaneously and independently 

  • drive collaboration and coordination between various stakeholders to ensure the optimal solution, recognising constraints on both the landfall scope and those affecting our interface parties 

  • take responsibility for all technical aspects relating to cable route design, engineering, procurement, and construction to ensure an effective installation of high-voltage export cables. 

Maybe you’ve read the above and can see you have some transferable skills, even though they don’t quite match all the points. If you think you can bring something to the team, we still encourage you to apply.
