Welcome to Ørsted’s Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) organisation
You’ll be part of the globally based Cost Engineering team where you, together with your colleagues, will work across the EPC organisation, as well as the commercial part of the organisation.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • developing cost-estimating models for strategic modules to support lean data flow, and to maximise insight from our portfolio through increased knowledge sharing
  • working closely with Engineering, Procurement, and Construction to ensure the representation of the latest technology and commercial assumptions in the cost baseline
  • ensuring compliance with established cost-estimating processes, systems, and industry best practice, as well as a continuous focus on data quality and integration with IT tools and governance.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • are eager to learn and develop within the team, and will pursue a good track record in terms of supporting employee’s internal career development, both horizontally and vertically
  • preferably have experience with complex infrastructure projects or renewable energy, though this is not a prerequisite
