Join us at this extraordinary workplace:

Founded and managed by Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum – a Community Interest Company committed to securing sustainable coasts and oceans for future generations, Marine Energy Wales (MEW) coordinates support for the rapidly growing marine renewable industry in Wales.

Our vision is to establish Wales as a global leader in sustainable marine energy generation, and we are proud to provide a voice for the wave, tidal and floating offshore wind (FLOW) industries.

There has never been a better time to join the marine renewables industry, and floating offshore wind in particular presents a once in a generation opportunity for Wales and the  UK as a whole. In Wales, the Celtic Sea is expected to play a key role in the UK’s journey to Net Zero, delivering thousands of jobs and significant supply chain opportunities for Welsh businesses. As our FLOW Project Manager, you have the chance to be at the forefront of this burgeoning industry and help shape the future of marine energy in Wales.

MEW is spearheading the development of floating offshore wind in Welsh waters through the Celtic Sea Developer Alliance (CSDA). The aim of the CSDA is to ensure the Celtic Sea opportunity is maximised at the scale and pace required for Net Zero, and to place Wales as a global leader within the sector. The CSDA promotes collaboration and engagement, provides support and acts as a unified voice to influence policy and to coordinate and strengthen stakeholder engagements. You will be the key point of contact for our CSDA members and help to drive the industry forward.

In joining MEW, you’ll play a crucial role in helping Wales realise it’s marine energy potential and shaping our future energy system.

The perfect addition to our team: 

We are in search of an ambitious and highly capable individual who will lead on the floating offshore wind aspects of our marine energy programme. On behalf of our CSDA members, you work closely with decision-makers, including the UK and Welsh Government and The Crown Estate, to tackle the key challenges FLOW developers face; such as grid, consenting and supply chain development and shaping the next generation of offshore wind.

The Floating Wind Project Manager’s responsibilities encompass developing a comprehensive action plan for the CSDA and reviewing the current working groups. You will nurture strong relationships with CSDA members and key stakeholders through meetings and events, represent the FLOW sector in various forums and stay informed about all the relevant sector news. You will also be involved in assisting Welsh supply chain companies to enter the sector and will become familiar with future skills and workforce requirements.

We are actively seeking contributions from all backgrounds and individuals outside our usual network to make a tangible, positive impact in the rapidly evolving field of floating offshore wind. We especially value diverse lived experiences that can enrich our decision-making and challenge conventional thinking. If you can bring fresh skills, perspectives, and a collaborative spirit, we encourage you to apply and become a vital part of our forward-thinking team.
