Join us. Unleash your energy within.
If you have world-class ambitions, we’re the team for you. We've created a new company that’s future-focused with ambition across all disciplines within the energy sector.
We require people who know their own potential and are not afraid to use it as we work together on some of the largest projects on the energy world stage.
Our purpose and beliefs:
As Kent, we’re tackling the greatest challenge of our time - to bring our world the energy it needs in the most responsible way.
It’s the energy of every member of our team driven by our beliefs that is making this happen.
Whatever our skill, our language, or our culture. These beliefs define and direct us every day to be the very best - for ourselves, our clients, our key stakeholders, the communities we operate in and the planet:

Our vision for Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging:
We recognise that diversity & inclusion are catalysts for success. We’re heightening awareness on the benefits of people diversity, diversity of experiences and diversity of our perspectives. Creating a culture of inclusivity where all employees feel a sense of belonging.
Our combined energy is fuelled by different nationalities, across 6 continents and 24 countries. Our commitment is to celebrate character – no matter what ethnic background, gender, age, religion, identity, or disability.
We understand that part-time doesn't mean part-committed, and most of our roles can be performed on a part-time basis. We work flexibly, and hybrid working is the norm for us, with staff typically spending around 50% of their week working from one of our offices.
Kent is looking for outstanding candidates to join our Offshore Wind structural design and analysis team within our Engineering and Consulting Services business. We require candidates from Assistant Engineer to Engineer level to deliver ongoing and new contracts and further our business growth.
We are actively recruiting in a number of our offices, but this vacancy is specifically for our growing Epsom team, situated in Surrey and ideally located within close reach of both central London and the Surrey countryside.
Our structural team spans across Wind, Oil & Gas and alongside Low Carbon sectors, with Epsom being home to around 40 of our offshore renewable, low carbon and oil & gas professionals of various disciplines. There is scope therefore to contribute to associated projects within these markets.
You will join a company with the feel of a billion-dollar start-up backed up with over 100 years of heritage and pedigree in the energy sector.
As a member of our team, you will support the winning and delivery of our global portfolio of projects through various levels of development (conceptual, FEED and detailed design projects) for major offshore wind assets, together with developing innovative solutions for repair and upgrades.
This position provides the opportunity for a passionate individual to contribute to the growing renewables sector, actively helping to combat climate change.
In your role, you will be carrying out or supporting the design and analysis of offshore structures. The role will allow you to develop technical and project skills through targeted training, on the job experience, mentoring and continual professional development.
You will require some experience of structural design and analysis, with either a civil, mechanical, or structural engineering background. The ideal candidate will have experience relevant to offshore structures, such as offshore substation platforms, wind turbine substructures or offshore oil & gas structures. An understanding of relevant structural concepts, behaviours, loads, etc. will be an advantage, although there will be opportunity to develop this experience for the right candidate.
Experience of working in accordance with engineering design codes and standards would benefit the role, with the ideal candidate showing the ability to establish robust solutions working from first principles based on a strong theoretical understanding. Reporting skills and a strong attention to detail with a commitment to quality control and assurance are essential.
Kent is a fast paced, innovative, and exciting environment to develop your career, that offers excellent opportunity to work on cutting edge offshore wind projects around the globe with exciting opportunities for technical and personal development. The right individual will play a key part in maintaining our best-in-class reputation and be part of an integrated team.
Traditionally, our capability has been UK-centric; however, in recent years we have secured a global presence in France, Germany, Taiwan, China, Japan, Ireland and the US. The ever-changing conditions of Offshore Wind Industry means we need individuals who can adapt, change and thrive when working in dynamic environments. Our global opportunities and innovation initiatives will allow you to excel and build upon your strengths as we continue our growth into existing and exciting emerging markets.
Our Engineering and Consulting Services business is delivering engineering, design and consultancy solutions to the renewables, low carbon and oil and gas sectors all over the world. Although your role will focus on the offshore wind market, you may also be called upon to support projects in other markets, such as supporting our industry-leading work in the structural integrity management of offshore oil and gas structures.
You will also have a range of the following desirable experience and attributes:
