Solution Centre Director

About the role

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) in a role that will have a strategic impact on extending the competitive life of the UK’s oil and gas industry.

Established in 2016, the OGTC’s vision is to be the ‘go to’ world-class technology centre for adapting, developing and deploying technology for the oil and gas industry. Through the work delivered by our Solution Centres, National Centres (R&D) and accelerator programme (TechX), the OGTC is committed to maximising economic recovery in the North Sea and doubling associated oil and gas supply chain exports over the next ten years.

To date we have co-invested £120 million across 200 projects, with 90 field trial completed, planned or underway. From innovative seismic databases that improve exploration performance, through to ground-breaking marine turbines for generating subsea power – these transformative technologies are moving the dial on North Sea challenges.

The OGTC is now embarking on the next exciting phase of its development, which includes the creation of a Net Zero Solution Centre to work in partnership with our existing Solutions Centres to develop and deploy technology that reduces the carbon footprint of the UKCS. The Solution Centre Director will have oversight over all seven Solution Centres and is responsible for delivering their respective Technology Roadmaps  – ensuring they have the appropriate funding and technically capable personnel to deliver them. Key to this is an environment that fosters and honours the OGTC’s values of inclusion, inspiration, innovation, independence and inquisitiveness.
