Electricity Networks (Installation and maintenance)

Through the improvement of working practices, all occupations can contribute to the country's achievement of its environmental and climate change goals. However, there are occupations in certain areas, such as offshore wind electricity generation, that are particularly important to help the country meet these goals.

Building on the initial work of the Green Jobs Taskforce and the subsequent work of the Green Jobs Delivery Group we have identified areas that are particularly important, which we are referring to as green themes, and where appropriate we have mapped occupations to these themes.

This map will help you quickly identify all occupations that are relevant to a particular green theme.
