Are you looking for an exciting professional opportunity in the rapidly growing renewable energy industry? Do you want to help grow Poland’s offshore wind capacity? We’re looking for the best candidates in IT, finance, and a growing list of other areas including engineering and offshore operations, to help keep Europe’s greenest energy company at the forefront of the renewables sector in Poland.
Join a major player in Polish offshore wind
Ørsted’s journey in Poland started in 1990, long before we had become the global green energy leader we are today. Three decades later, our office in Warsaw serves as a hub for company-wide financial services and IT development, maintenance, and operations. In recent years, we’ve grown rapidly, building a highly effective local team of more than 600 people, which supports Ørsted’s entire global footprint.
In 2021, Ørsted entered a joint venture agreement with PGE (Polish Energy Group), giving us a 50% share in the upcoming Baltica 2 and 3 offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea. With a combined capacity of 2.5 GW, the project will be Poland’s largest offshore wind farm, giving Ørsted an important role in helping meet Poland’s 11 GW offshore wind target. It also means that we’ll be looking to employ more and more people in a wider range of positions in what is now one of our fastest developing markets.
“It’s amazing to see the number of career opportunities and personal development options available at Ørsted in Poland already. But knowing that we’re going to build Poland’s largest offshore wind project, I’d say we’re only just getting started.”
- Michael Prutsch, Head of Portfolio Baltics, Warsaw
“Working at Ørsted is one of the greatest professional experiences one can imagine – you have a feeling of serving a great purpose and contributing to one of the world’s most important current challenges – combating climate change.”
- Marzena Sekul, People and Development, Warsaw

Located next to Warsaw Central railway station and next to the Varso Tower, our new office is well connected to the public transport network – and just 20-30 minutes from Warsaw Chopin airport by train. There are also plenty of bike parking spaces available, making cycling a good transport option.

- Finance and controlling
- IT and digital
