Being Ørsome

What are we looking for?

While our guiding principles describe the way we work together in Ørsted and what drives us in our daily work, our executives identified nine characteristics that define how we expect our people to contribute to our success – now and in the future.

No individual will master them all, but these ‘Ørsome characteristics’ tell you what we’re looking for when we hire new people to become part of our team. We hope that you can recognise some of these Ørsome traits in yourself.

Frequently asked questions

  • How do I apply for a job at Ørsted?

    All our open positions are posted on our career page, and your application must be submitted online. In each job advertisement there’s an ‘Apply’ button. When you click this, you enter our application portal. If you already have a profile, you can log in here. Alternatively, you can simply create an account. Once you’ve filled in the form and uploaded your documents, you can either press ‘Save’ to finish your application later or press ’Apply’ to send your application.

    With your login information, you can check the status of your application and change the details on your candidate profile at any time. However, it’s not possible to edit your application once it’s been moved to screening status.

  • Will I ever have to pay to apply for a job or attend an interview at Ørsted?
    No! Unfortunately, Ørsted’s name and logo are occasionally used in fake job adverts that are circulated on social media. Scammers may also contact potential candidates with a job offer and ask them for a deposit. Ørsted will never ask you for any kind of payment in the hiring process. Our open positions are always posted here on our career page, and you must submit your application online in the application portal.
  • Do you accept unsolicited applications?
    Ørsted does not accept unsolicited applications. All candidates must apply through our website. We do this to be thorough and fair to every candidate. It’s important that all applications are collected in the same place for us to dedicate an equal amount of time and resources to everyone. Also, we take data protection seriously, and applying through our website ensures that all applications are treated in compliance with GDPR.
  • Can I edit my application after I’ve applied for a position?
    When you submitted your application, you created a candidate profile. Through the profile, you can change your application while it's still in the 'New application' status. When the status has changed to 'In progress' you can no longer change your application. You can see the status and edit your application under ‘Job Applied’. 
  • Which language should I write my application documents in?
    We typically recommend applying in English, as we’re an international company and most of our job advertisements are in English. However, if the job advertisement is written in your native language, and you’re more comfortable writing in your mother tongue, that’s perfectly fine too.
  • Who should I address the cover letter to?
    Feel free to use a generic greeting.
  • I have applied/been interviewed before and was not selected. Can I apply again?
    Absolutely. You’re always welcome to apply for other open positions in the future.
  • Can I apply for multiple roles?
    Yes. We recommend selecting a few roles that you believe are the best fit for yourself and the next step in your career.
  • When can I expect a response to my application?
    We reply to all candidates as quickly as possible.
  • I was not invited to a job interview. Can I get feedback on my application?
    Unfortunately, we don’t have the resources to give individual feedback to all applicants, but you can expect feedback after a job interview.
