Renewable Energy Engineer

Most industries now understand the benefits of working with contractors opposed to permanent staff. This is definitely the case with the Renewable Energy sector as projects are often undertaken for a fixed period of time rather than on a long-term ongoing basis.

The hiring of external contractors provides businesses with a truly flexible ‘call on demand’ workforce. It’s a win-win relationship as the contractors also have much more flexibility and freedom from things like internal politics - not to mention higher rates of pay. In fact, contractors almost always earn more than permanent employees, which is only fair considering the loss of holiday pay, sick pay, pensions and other employee benefits.

The future is set for contractors within the Renewable Energy sector, it is predicted that by 2015 the sector is set to be worth around £150 billion in the UK alone with the government predicting 1.3 million new jobs and growing for Renewable Energy Engineers.
