Investigate what opportunities and skills are transferrable between the UK onshore and offshore sectors.

Understanding the opportunities within the Onshore Renewable Sector

RMi are interested in identifying if the onshore renewable sector creates an opportunity to develop technicians for the offshore sector and find out if onshore and offshore can coexist. In this project, you will investigate the size and requirements of the UK Onshore Renewables sector. You will align the onshore operational requirements with the established offshore provision of the company, identifying the potential up- and downsides. You will report on whether onshore and offshore can coexist with a business and if the requirements frequently clash or complement.

To answer these questions, you will research and analyse the market, identify opportunities and the skills required to take advantage of them, and match the skills required with existing staff’s skillsets. You will be able to liaise with clients and RMi staff for support and information gathering throughout the project. You will create a report and presentation highlighting potential rotes and requirements to create opportunities and pathways for RMi.
