Do you know of young engineers who may be interested in working for UK Power Networks on the Low Carbon London project? If so, please point them at this opportunity.
Working on one of the world’s flagship programs like Low Carbon London (with its focus on climate change, renewable energy, energy conservation and smart networks) would provide a young engineer with invaluable experience so they can then return and apply this knowledge to Queensland’s power industry.
This is a special ES Cornwall Memorial Scholarship award tenable for 6 to 12 months to enable the scholar to undertake paid professional employment with UK Power Networks in London on the project.
The award is open to engineering graduates from all Queensland universities with a preference for graduates with three to five years experience who would benefit from the placement and are currently either:
(a) working in the power industry or
(b) as an early career power engineering academic at one of Queensland’s universities.
The award recipient will receive a total grant of Aud$10,000 to cover the cost of travel and relocation costs that will supplement the salary of approximately £20,000 p.a to be paid by UK Power Networks whilst working on their project.
Whilst not being a highly paid assignment, this is a great opportunity for personal development and professional experience.
Also, please refer to this additional information about the award.
