Use your skills to support Global Wind Organisation (GWO) in creating training standards for a safer and more productive workforce

Are you ready to add onto your academic profile by contributing your knowledge and can-do attitude, to a non-profit organisation founded by leading wind turbine manufacturers and operators? Do you excel when supporting your colleagues and stakeholders?

GWO strive for an injury free work environment in the wind turbine industry, setting common international standards for safety training and emergency procedures together with its members

As of today, there are 98.000 GWO certified technicians working within the wind industry. They have become certified by receiving training from one of the now +350 GWO training providers throughout the world. Providing training standards that can stand the test of time in that scale, can only be done while focusing on key areas such as safety, productivity, local sourcing, and supply chain alignment.

How will you contribute to the development of safety training standards?

You will support the GWO Secretariat, by working closely with the standards development team. Main task will be assisting the training project managers in workshop input and facilitation including preparing presentations and taking notes, process descriptions and document control.

Additional responsibilities are:

·       Provide onboarding support to users of our global database – WINDA

·       Light billing through E-conomic

·       Stakeholder service support across all channels (mostly email, phone, ticket system) to our various stakeholders

·       Ad hoc assistance to your colleagues in everything from meetings and travel planning

As our new colleague you are

An overall pleasant person, well grounded in healthy values and good interpersonal skills. You know the importance of communicating constructively, and even when you do not know the answer to a question, you do take the time to assist the person seeking an answer.

·       Plan to work for GWO for at least 18 months.

·       Can communicate at a high level in English both written and verbal – other languages are an advantage, but not a requirement.
