In the strategy team, we provide recommendations to senior management on the biggest challenges Ørsted faces in relation to offshore wind, and help shape and implement initiatives to solve them.
As strategy consultants, we really make a difference in helping set the company on course – which means we’ve shaped the wider offshore wind industry since its inception. It’s a perfect role for anyone with a strong analytical background and a passion for green energy.
Our permitting teams (known as consents in the UK) are involved in every stage of our offshore wind projects, from development to construction to operation. We ensure that all the necessary permits or consents are obtained and complied with, and that we can learn lessons from one project to the next.
We work on some of the world’s largest and most technologically innovative offshore wind farms, so it’s a rewarding function that demands high levels of skill and commitment.
In mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions teams, we project-manage and execute transactions on a scale of hundreds of millions of euros – or GBP or USD – to maximise the value of Ørsted’s offshore wind asset divestment programme.
It’s an exciting role, leading the bidding process and maintaining relationships with investors – such as pension funds, private equity funds, and infrastructure investors – from the first bid right through to closing a transaction. And since we operate on a global scale, each transaction has to be structured according to different corporate requirements in different jurisdictions.
