What defines us
One of the key qualities that makes Statkraft a great place to work is the environment that we have created. This is one of trust and autonomy and something the team is very proud and protective of.
The recruitment is tough - it is not easy to get a job in Statkraft, but this is not something that will change. We ensure that the people hired are competent, innovative and responsible, just like our core values. Hiring with these values in mind brings us a range of people from different backgrounds, geographies etc. but unites us all by having these in common.
So how does Statkraft create a culture of trust and autonomy? It hires smart people and lets them get on with their work. It recognises that its people are the key to achieving its business goals so trusts that because they were hired in accordance with its values, they can get the job done.
It is important that people go above and beyond each day for the organisation, and celebrating that is something is taken seriously too.

Word from the top
This is our first year being ranked as a Great Place to Work and we are thrilled with such a positive result. Since Statkraft entered the Irish market in 2018, we have started to build some of the most innovative and significant renewable projects in Ireland, including the largest solar farm and the first commercial scale battery projects. We have also doubled our team and tripled our project pipeline. This growth is driven by our talented and committed workforce, and I am very proud of the team and the culture that we have created. But culture goes beyond rankings. What is important to me is that we are a company that is make a significant contribution to improving our environment and quality of life and that we are able to do it in a positive, inclusive and encouraging workplace. Our staff’s well-being is a major priority for us and we make a conscious effort to ensure everyone has the support they need.

"I have been a member of Statkraft’s Asset Management Team for the last three years, working in a number of different operational areas such as technical reporting, quality management and community benefit. Since joining Statkraft I have had endless opportunities to continue to learn and improve both professionally and personally. It is great to be surrounded by such likeminded, talented people in which we all are working towards a common goal of a greener future. "
