Vattenfall’s new energy landscape comes with a positive impact on employment figures in the company’s wind business. In total, 130 jobs are to be filled within the next 12 months, providing interesting career opportunities to engineers and professionals.
Vattenfall is investing five billion euros in the expansion of wind and other renewables. Offshore projects, such as Sandbank in Germany, Aberdeen in UK, and Horns Rev 3 in Denmark are showcasing Vattenfall’s strong commitment to renewables and plan to expand wind capacity every year by 400 to 600 MW. The company is also working on its first large-scale solar project in connection with an onshore wind farm.
With this growth, Vattenfall is creating new jobs in commercial and technical areas, and has already begun the hiring process for these new positions. More than 600 employees are already working in renewable energy projects within the company’s Business Area Wind.
“We are in a very exciting phase in Vattenfall and the energy industry at the moment. The energy transition is already well under way and we need to build up new competencies and recruit new talent to help us achieve our ambitious goals,” said Lamin Faye, Head of HR & HSE for Business Area Wind.
Vattenfall is especially looking for specialists in areas like Commercial, Engineering, Project Management or Site Operations.
“Vattenfall has over 100 years of experience in the energy business and is at the forefront in Europe’s energy transition into renewables, especially in offshore wind,” added Faye. “We offer an exciting work place where people can contribute to building the future energy landscape and we know that great people make all the difference.”
