“Offshore wind is helping transform the daily lives of people and communities, and I see this at first hand within the coastal communities in which we operate. There is a big drive behind diversity which is extremely important to encourage new entrants into the offshore wind and gives people the opportunity to be involved and bring new ideas to all areas of the industry. It is an exciting industry to be a part of as offshore wind continues to grow in the UK and also globally.
“At a very local and practical level, our Galloper Wind Farm features on the www.icanbea.org.uk website, which showcases career opportunities directly to young people in Suffolk, Norfolk and further afield. At the same time, through the Anglia Youth Pledge, we’re helping young people access key support for education, training and employment. Directly, Galloper has been an active supporter of the East Coast Energy Internship, launched by The Royal Academy of Engineering, by hosting two students on the project.”
