Ready for two years of rapid career progression with a global green energy leader?


We’re ready to back your talent in our vision to create a world that runs entirely on green energy.

The Ørsted Graduate Programme

The graduate programme is divided into three main tracks, taking you on a two-year journey within three business rotations. You will immerse yourself within the green energy industry, master high-speed innovation and accelerate your career.

Explore each part of the programme below:
  • Industry insight
    You'll deep-dive into the energy sector and apply your knowledge in different areas of the business alongside the best minds in the industry. You'll experience international project work, build a cross-functional network and take real responsibility.
  • Innovation lab
    We rely on you to help us discover new ways of working and to develop new knowledge to stay disruptive in the energy sector. You'll get to explore exponential thinking and learn how to create value in the business. After participating in learning modules and an immersive field trip, you'll solve a real-life business case by applying your new skills.
  • Career accelerator
    Throughout the programme, and supporting your on-the-job learning, you'll participate in virtual action learning within groups. A mentor will furthermore help you process your experiences and boost your transition from graduate to a high-performing professional.

Hiring process

Below you’ll find information regarding the graduate hiring process and Graduate Assessment Day.
  • Graduate Hiring Process

    As we receive many applications and review them thoroughly, it may take some time before we get back to you. You will however hear from us in early February 2020.

    We recommend that you familiarise yourself with our company on before you apply. You upload your application online and will receive a confirmation in your mailbox. Remember to make a copy of the job posting, as it will be removed from the website after the application deadline.

    If your application is successful, you’ll be invited to our Ørsted Graduate Assessment Day at our office in Gentofte, Denmark.

  • Graduate Assessment Day
    On Graduate Assessment Day, you’ll learn about our company and our strategy, participate in a group exercise, meet current graduates and have your job interview with the relevant hiring manager. 
    The interview will be based on the graduate position that you have applied for, and this is where we would like to get to know you better. Make sure that you can make a good case as to why you should be our new graduate and prepare specific examples to support your arguments. 
    After the Graduate Assessment Day, we will evaluate the candidates again and select the participants in the programme. If you are not offered employment, you will receive a reasoned rejection. 
    The Graduate Assessment Day is an all-day event. If you travel from abroad, we will support travel expenses.
