People & Skills



As a key part of our Offshore Wind Sector Deal work with the Government, we are conducting an annual survey of jobs in the UK offshore wind industry, including employment numbers and roles, regional locations, and opportunities for apprentices and new graduates.

We are also gathering data on gender and ethnicity to enable us to demonstrate that we are a diverse and inclusive sector.  

This research is vital for the industry to be able to understand and address any shortages in both the short and long term, to ensure the development and delivery of future projects; especially issues which cannot be addressed at project level, but which need an industry-wide response. 


OWIC has committed to report annually on the progress which the industry has made on our Offshore Wind Sector Deal commitments on job creation. Labour market information is also vital in the submission to Government of Supply Chain Plans by companies seeking to qualify for CfDs. It informs the investment decisions of academic and training bodies too, enabling them to support the supply of people into the industry.
