The start of something bigger

Become a trainee at Ørsted

Are you keen to try new things, and do you like each day to be different? Are you ready to learn things that many others have to go to school to learn? Do you want more personal and professional experience?

As a trainee at Ørsted, you’ll get an education that can be the start of something bigger.

You’ll work in different departments, where you’ll gain a broad understanding of your field, develop as a person and build up a strong professional network.
This will provide a good foundation for your further career, regardless of your plans for the future.

Application for our trainee programme will be open from

3 December to

27 January.

A complete programme

First and foremost, the programme will be well-structured. You’ll embark on a two-year process that will give you enough time to do everything you need to do. Your supervisor will help you plan out your own individual programme, so you can also do the things you want to do. 

For example, you’ll know from the start whether you’ll need to rotate between departments or whether you’ll be working in the same place throughout your traineeship.

Twice a year, you will participate in a joint theme day for all Ørsted’s trainees. Each theme day will introduce a theme that is relevant to your further development, for example professional conduct or writing CVs.

Planning and supervision

You’ll be assigned a supervisor whom you can always ask for advice on a day-to-day basis. Your supervisor is responsible for drawing up your traineeship plan and ensuring a good learning process. You’ll also have a more experienced trainee as a “buddy”. He or she will be familiar with everyday working life in Ørsted and make it easy to get answers to practical questions – even ones you might not want to ask your supervisor.



One of Denmark’s largest and most successful companies

Ørsted is one of the largest companies in Denmark. A traineeship with us will therefore put you in a good position when you need to move on in your career. You’ll have shown that you can work in a large organisation and will have successfully carried out many types of tasks.

Naturally, this requires that you’re able to interact with many colleagues and ready to take on a bit of everything. If you are, Ørsted can give you the opportunity for a traineeship a little out of the ordinary.


Meet skilled colleagues and build a strong network

You can build up a wide and diverse professional network already during your traineeship. We have engineers who work on offshore wind farms, biomass plants and other forms of green energy; economists with responsibility for managing the company’s day-to-day finances; branding, communication and language specialists who find the right words for what we do; IT experts who find all kinds of ways to let us do what we need to do in faster and smarter ways; and many more. We see it as a part of your traineeship that you become much more aware about all your options and find out where you want to make a difference.

Discover an international atmosphere

The world has become smaller. And in the course of your working life, you’ll probably at some point work across national borders or share a workplace with colleagues from different countries.

We have employees in Germany, Britain, Taiwan, the US and other countries. 80% of our revenue comes from our offshore wind turbines and other projects abroad. We also have various departments in Denmark, including in Gentofte, Virum and Skærbæk, where you’ll meet colleagues, visitors and students from many other countries than Denmark.
