Our take on the Ørsted Global Graduate Programme

Headquartered in Denmark, Ørsted’s 7,300 employees develop, construct, and operate offshore and onshore wind farms, solar farms, energy storage facilities, renewable hydrogen and green fuels facilities, and bioenergy plants and provide energy products to its customers


Since changing name from DONG energy to Ørsted (after the famous Danish physicist, Hans Christian Ørsted), the company has been on a tear. They have reduced their coal consumption by 91% since 2006 and decided to fully phase out coal entirely in 2023. They are a global leader in offshore wind and have installed enough capacity to power more than 14 million people. By 2030, their ambition is to have installed more than 30GW of renewable energy capacity, enough to power more than 55 million people across the world.


Just like the company itself, the Ørsted Graduate Programme has been through a transformation and is today one of the best resourced and most well- run programmes out there. The two-year programme takes the graduate through 2-3 rotations – one of them potentially in one of their international offices. They hire graduates within the areas of: business and finance ,IT and digital, engineering, and procurement.


Being a company built on innovation and deep engineering experience the programme both welcomes future specialists and leaders.


As you would expect many graduates are drawn to the tremendous journey Ørsted is on. Climate change has been and continues to be one of the most worth-vile causes for any ambitious graduate. If you’re looking for a job with purpose this could be the one.
