Your career

Vestas’ core business consists of development, production, sales and service of wind technology and our 20,500 talented colleagues all perform to meet our pure goal: generating the greatest and most sustainable return on wind for our customers.

In a dynamic and fast paced industry like the wind industry, new commercial and environmental opportunities are constantly emerging. To maintain our position as an industry pace-setter, we always look for new talented employees.

Our employee promise is “Your meaningful profession. It means the world to us.” By coming to work every day, taking part in changing the world’s energy mix, Vestas employees are making a positive impact on a global scale. This is why we don’t hesitate to promise a meaningful profession to all employees working at Vestas.

What supports our promise:

  • Diverse challenges and an ability to act
  • An opportunity for continuous learning and development
  • Business results that have positive impact on a global scale

Development

We approach your development through a combination of Education (classroom or shop-floor modules), Experience (learning from colleagues in live work environments) and Exposure (to new technologies, processes and ways of thinking).

Our education efforts are particularly focused on technical training as it is crucial that our workforce is the most technically accomplished in the industry. In addition to formal learning settings we believe that it is essential to exploit development opportunities where they happen – within the work process. This is why we have a strong focus on learning through collaboration, which often is shaped as practical on-the-job development activities.

We always look to the future, so your development includes not only practical training essential for fulfilling your own role, but also the more strategic skills necessary for operating as part of a truly global company.

Around the world, we provide development and learning opportunities designed to channel talented colleagues through each of our three equally-weighted career tracks: People & Business leadership (for people managers), Knowledge & Innovation leadership (for technical or business experts), and Project Leadership (for project managers).

Vestas | Development
To track your success and guide your development you will as an employee at Vestas have an annual Performance & Development Dialog (PDD) with your manager. By looking back at your achievements over the previous twelve months and by setting new development goals for the year ahead, you will benefit from a continual learning experience, with significant professional and personal rewards.

Career Path

Depending on the experience and the role, we offer structured career paths for several of our positions across the business. This is done through each of our three equally-weighted career paths: 

  • People & Business leadership (for people managers)
  • Knowledge & Innovation leadership (for technical or business experts)
  • Project Leadership (for project managers)

We manage a strong internal pipeline of multi-skilled employees to ensure the future competitiveness of the company while boosting your career. 

Many of our job opportunities have a predefined path. All three paths run across all areas of the business and are of equal importance to Vestas.
