WestWind Energy is a company that has successfully developed renewable energy projects in Australia since 2004. Our mission is to be a driver of change towards a sustainable energy future for our planet. We do this through the development of cost effective, renewable energy generation and storage solutions refined through technical excellence, commitment to communities, and cohesive company values. The company offers a modern workplace in beautiful regional Gisborne and fosters a strong team culture.
We are honest, open, ethical and fair. We do what we say we will do, and people trust us to adhere to our word.
For a wind farm project to become a success it is crucial that the landowners and WestWind Energy work together collaboratively and harmoniously. We follow a very thorough and detailed process when developing a wind farm, to ensure project viability and to generate the best possible result for the community, including landholders.
Landholder relationships and securing land tenure is fundamental for the successful development of renewable energy infrastructure. This role leads a dedicated team of land tenure officers and will play an integral part of the development team through the negotiations and securing of land tenure contracts for wind farm infrastructure and electricity easements.
Our landholder relationships are key to our success and the successful applicant must be able to demonstrate experience in establishing rapport and maintaining positive relationships that facilitate constructive negotiations and signing of tenure agreements for our project.
We are a small business doing big things and work closely and collaboratively together. This role will work hand in glove with the development team and will have career opportunities throughout the WestWind business. The role will require approximately 50% travel in regional Australia, specifically across Western Victoria, QLD and NSW.
