We’re Hiring: Graduate Renewable Energy Consultant

January 8, 2020
With new projects on the horizon, OnGen is growing. We are looking to hire a bright graduate with a passion for renewables. Feel free to share our job description below with any suitable candidates.

OnGen is a growing start-up, founded to tackle key energy problems including price volatility, energy security and climate change. Our award-winning optimisation software, the OnGen Expert, acts as a desk-based renewable energy feasibility assessment platform. We currently look at a range of technologies, including solar, battery storage and wind. Our clients span across the UK and work in a range of sectors, both private and public.

This is an exciting opportunity for a graduate to join a small team and have a large impact early in your career. The growth opportunities for OnGen are immense and you would have the power to help shape our future. You will have the opportunity to gain exposure to the UK energy sector, attend events across the country and speak with senior members of other innovative companies. You will respond directly to the MD and therefore learn about how to start and develop a business.

The role involves ensuring our customers are using our software effectively through regular dialogue, demonstrations and feedback capturing. Capturing feedback plays into the software development cycle and thus, there is the occasional software testing. You will work closely with the software developers to ensure our platform is up to date with industry and policy. You will also carry out renewable energy assessments on behalf of clients. Assessments include data cleaning and analysis, geospatial data analysis using GIS and report writing.
