What attracted you to Statkraft?

Being interested in the current transformation of the energy system, Statkraft seemed like a very exciting company to work for (and I was right – it is). Both because of its ambitious initiatives within renewable energy and its global presence. To me it is a great opportunity to work for a company that can give me insight in energy systems and power markets in Scandinavia and Europe, as well as in other very different parts of the world.

Also, I really liked the way the trainee program was laid out and had heard a lot of good things about Statkraft as an employer.
