Temperatures are rising, and so is the demand for renewable energy and talented colleagues. The challenge ahead of us may be daunting, but as we strive to be the global leader in sustainable energy solutions, Vestas stands at the forefront of breaking with the world’s dependency on fossil fuels. It’s crucial that we position ourselves with people ready to take on this challenge.

In recent years, the renewable energy industry and Vestas have experienced rapid growth – a tendency that is predicted to increase even further in the future. Throughout its history, Vestas has gone from being a small manufacturing company in western Denmark, flourishing into a multinational company with offices and wind turbines all over the world, and a network of over 29,000 colleagues with 111+ different nationalities.

The globalization of Vestas poses extensive demands of our products and services, and most of all, our people. As Vestas’ turbines withstand the challenges of all kinds of climate conditions, whilst continuously harnessing energy, so too must our employees innovate and improve to set the path for a green recovery and the electrification of our economy as global energy demand increases.


In Vestas, we stand united to meet these challenges. Each Vestas employee brings different experiences and areas of expertise to the table – be they service technicians, factory workers, or engineers across our onshore and newly-reacquired offshore businesses - making collaboration crucial to thrive and succeed. Creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels confident that their voice will be heard, is a key focus area in Vestas. In fact, we’ve set ourselves a goal to become ‘The safest, most inclusive, and socially responsible workplace in the energy industry’.


When working at Vestas, you get to contribute to and benefit from a fast-growing company, knowing that new opportunities arise for those who work hard enough to seize them. Since I joined this fact-paced organisation in January 2020, I’ve witnessed the passion of the many skilled colleagues who make Vestas what it is, generating performance even throughout a global pandemic.


We endeavour to have a unique purpose as one company: That every action you take contributes to renewable energy and ultimately has an impact on building a more sustainable future for us and the generations to come. 


So, next time you’re considering a change in your career, I ask that you consider this - in Vestas, we power the solution – can you?
