Choose your career

The Ørsted Graduate Programme is tailored to suit your specific background and interests. The three tracks below lead to in-depth experience within your professional field. 

Choose your career
  • Business development & finance

    You’ll get to take part in planning the activities that shape our future. We drive massive investment programmes in offshore wind, and you’ll find yourself doing business on a scale you’ve barely dared to dream of, working alongside leading experts in your field. 

    Typical background: master’s degree in business, finance, strategy, engineering or law.

  • Digital & IT

    You’ll get to take part in shaping a green and intelligent future. You’ll gain unique expertise as you work on IT projects ranging from the digital infrastructure of the world’s largest offshore wind farms to creating new solutions for the energy grid of tomorrow.

    Typical background: master’s degree in IT or business.

  • Engineering

    You’ll join a world leader in offshore wind and biomass-fired power stations operating in a constantly evolving industry. You’ll work on cutting-edge technologies to push the boundaries of what’s possible within renewable energy on the world’s largest projects – anywhere on the globe.

    Typical background: master’s degree in structural, mechanical, electrical or management engineering.

Ørsted Graduate. The journey

The Ørsted Graduate Programme is divided into three main tracks, taking you on a two-year journey within three business rotations: 

  • Career Accelerator

    Career Accelerator is the interaction you have with your senior career mentor and fellow graduates. Throughout the programme, you'll participate in development sessions and virtual action learning to support your on-the-job learning. A mentor will guide, encourage and challenge you to make the most of your talent. You’ll also build a widespread network of professional peers to support your future career.

  • Business Experience

    The backbone of your learning and development where you’ll be responsible for your own projects and apply your expertise to influence decisions. You’ll handle international project work, build a cross-functional network and take real responsibility as you’ll get engaged in our day-to-day business decisions. Many of our graduates will complete one of their business rotations in another country.

  • Innovation Lab

    Innovation has made Ørsted a global leader in renewable energy, and we’re constantly looking for ideas that’ll help us improve everything from processes to technology. As part of the Innovation lab track, we’ve partnered with SingularityU Nordic to give you insight into this area. SingularityU is responsible for leading your education, and you'll get to explore exponential thinking and learn how to master high-speed innovation.

    You’ll cross the Atlantic to visit Singularity University in Silicon Valley where you’ll meet front-running companies, visit the NASA headquarters and learn how to work like exponential organisations do.

We’ve teamed up with SingularityU Nordic

You’ll be able to immerse yourself in how to apply exponential technologies to create big ideas with the potential to have an impact on the future. We don’t know for sure what the future will bring, but we do know that we want to create a world that runs entirely on green energy, and that we’ll need bright and innovative minds to get us there.
