Geotechnical or Senior Geotechnical Engineer

Imagine a future where you play a key role in addressing complex offshore geotechnical engineering challenges for the development of offshore wind farms

Join us in this role where you’ll be delivering high-quality geotechnical engineering input to foundation design, installation assessments, power cable engineering, and more. You’ll be deeply involved in a suite of geotechnical tasks ranging from analysing data from field and laboratory testing to programming new in-house tools for use across all our offshore wind farms.

Welcome to GEO
You’ll be part of our Geotechnical Assessment team where you, together with your colleagues, will be analysing large geotechnical datasets, interpreting soil parameters, and using in-house tools and coding in your daily routine.
