Future UK energy-generating systems with low carbon emissions are being pioneered by our client.

They design, implement, run, and manage networks and systems for generating clean energy as a top turnkey engineering contractor.

They need an Energy Modeller to work in this fascinating and expanding area of the industry at their Blackburn headquarters due to their continuing growth.
