PEOPLE & SKILLS

The Offshore Wind Sector Deal is an ambitious, long-term strategy.  By 2030 offshore wind will provide over one-third of the UK’s electricity and the workforce will triple in size. Many of these jobs will be highly skilled and in coastal communities. The industry is working to improve its gender and ethnic diversity, increasing the number of apprentices, employing former armed forces personnel and developing an Offshore Energy Passport to facilitate movement into the industry.

33% women by 2030

We're committed to increasing the representation of women, and those from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, to ensure our workforce properly reflects the communities we serve. In partnership with The Equal Group, our Investment in Talent Group have created a best practice guide to help businesses and companies ensure their workplaces are accessible and attractive to those currently under-represented in the sector, and a charter for supporting women in the industry.  

The Offshore Wind Industry Council brings together industry, policy-makers and stakeholders to shape the industry, and work collaboratively to achieve our ambitions for 2030 and beyond.
