Opportunities

Supply Chain opportunities

A significant infrastructure development like White Cross, brings with it opportunity for businesses across a wide range of disciplines.

We aim to utilise as many UK based suppliers where reasonably possible during all stages of the development phase. Subject to the relevant consents and a positive Financial Investment Decision, this will increase through to the construction phase.

There will be further opportunities throughout the long-term operational phase.

If you have a supply chain query, please complete the short form below. Your enquiry will be directed to our dedicated Supply Chain team.

    Employment opportunities

    As the UK scales up to meet the Government target of reaching 50GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030, there is a clear workforce requirement in our rapidly expanding sector.

    To find out more about rewarding careers in offshore wind, many resources are available online, including insightful publications from the Offshore Wind Industry Council.

    Community benefits

    White Cross is fully committed to delivering a community benefit scheme in line with UK Government guidance, which is due to be published this year. ​

    To read more about the UK Government’s approach to, and consultation on, introducing community benefits for electricity transmission network infrastructure please visit ​this link.

    Community benefits are a tool to ensure that where infrastructure such as renewable energy is necessary, communities can directly benefit from hosting it. It is important to the White Cross project to collaborate with our supply chains, local communities, and environmental bodies to ensure that our project have a positive impact.

    Community benefits can cover, but are not limited to:

    • Finance for local projects
    • Outreach initiatives
    • Funding to individuals or organisations in a local area

    Community benefits can also be used to deliver investment and growth in the local area, especially when used to invest in local infrastructure, supply chain and skills.

    The Project team has been working with local people, businesses and organisations to identify key themes and projects that will deliver strategic benefits and directly support the local community and local priorities.

    We welcome further input from the local community to help shape the community benefit scheme and encourage you to reach out to the project team via hello@whitecrossoffshorewind.com.
