At Vestas, we are more than 23,000 colleagues and we offer a world of opportunities for people with a global mind-set and the desire to make a positive impact. Working at Vestas you will meet people with a broad range of skills, from a variety of cultures and we are always on the lookout for more talented individuals.

Career 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. Therefore, 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).

Of course, the advantages of working for Vestas are about more than money and lifestyle privileges. We offer high-level training in a major growth industry and a range of career paths to suit everyone.

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.


Employee Development

To track your success and guide your development you will as an employee at Vestas be part of a Continuous Performance and Development process (CPD) together with your manager.
