Crown Estate Scotland Partner with Eden Scott to double energy team
Crown Estate Scotland is to double the size of its energy and infrastructure team as part of its commitment to help Scotland meet its 2045 net-zero targets, and they have partnered with Eden Scott to support their recruitment.
Over the next four weeks, applicants will be sought for seven roles covering a host of disciplines, to ensure the effective implementation of future projects such as ScotWind Leasing, to help enable offshore wind development in Scottish Waters, and to consider new or emerging opportunities including Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), Hydrogen and Wave & Tidal energy development.
ScotWind is Scotland’s current offshore wind leasing process – the first of its kind in a decade - and is set to deliver enough green electricity to power every home in Scotland and make a major contribution to getting the country to net-zero by 2045.
Colin Palmer, Director of Marine, Crown Estate Scotland, said:
"It’s a really exciting time for offshore renewables, with our ScotWind Leasing round currently live and set to deliver major benefits to Scotland as well as a further leasing round currently being developed. These new roles reflect our commitment to help Scotland remain world-leading in offshore renewables and support new technologies. It’s critical that we have an expanded, diverse team to help take this forward.”
Eden Scott CEO, Michelle Lownie said:
"There is a hugely talented workforce ready to deliver on Scotland’s net zero ambitions by increasing offshore renewable generation and supporting emerging technologies. Helping Crown Estate Scotland identify and connect with this talent and expertise is for Eden Scott a really worthwhile and hugely satisfying way of contributing to the green recovery.”
The new roles will help expand and develop Crown Estate Scotland’s work in helping decarbonise Scotland’s energy supply, attract inward investment, and deliver major benefits to Scottish communities.
Advertisement of the roles will begin on Monday 4 October. Candidates can find them via a dedicated recruitment microsite.
