Moray Offshore Renewable Power
Apprentices Interns and Graduate
Since EDPR established its UK office in 2010, we have made a commitment to encouraging young talent through graduate and intern recruitment.
Moray West is at an earlier stage of development compared with Moray East; this means that the project is well placed to build on the experience gained by Moray East in recruitment, development and education. Since 2012, ca. 30 interns have been placed with Moray East on the Environmental Placement Programme; of those, five have been retained with the company.
The project hosts a number of Masters projects for students, and as progress is made through development towards construction the opportunities will increase, not just at graduate level, but through working with our suppliers, for apprenticeships and also for direct work experience with EDPR.
Case Study – Peter Haughie
“While studying at Herriot Watt University –Renewable Energy Development – I joined EDPR as an intern – at that time I was doing my Masters thesis on GIS – so development of offshore wind provided an ideal match for my education.
“I was kept on in that role for a year. I stayed with the company and then moved into procurement – which is a position that I have held for the past three years.
“EDPR is a young, dynamic company. It has a presence in a third of the EU nations, as well as America, and it helps its workforce to take advantage of the opportunities of working in different countries. The opportunities for professional development are outstanding.”
