Ørsted has signed the Armed Forces Covenant which highlights the offshore wind as a “forces-friendly” industry. The company wants to support the employment of veterans in the wind industry and will also offer flexibility in granting leave for service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment wherever possible, as well as supporting employees who choose to be members of the Reserve forces.

Ørsted UK managing director Matthew Wright was joined at the signing ceremony by Commodore David Elford OBE ADC Royal Navy and several ex-services veterans now working at Ørsted.

Matthew Wright, Ørsted UK Managing Director, said: "At Ørsted, we have refined our recruitment processes to ensure that we attract and retain new talent from a wide range of sources, as well as supporting and employing people in the communities where we develop and operate our projects. In our experience, service veterans possess many transferable skills and qualities which have led to a successful transition to careers in the offshore wind industry. We are therefore delighted to formalise our pledge of support to those who serve or have served in the armed forces with the signing of this covenant."

Commodore David Elford OBE ADC Royal Navy, the Naval Regional Commander for eastern England, said: "For a company such as Ørsted to sign the Covenant and its associated pledges sends an important message (both inside and outside the company) that the armed forces are respected and valued. I have been impressed by the Ørsted veterans and their stories and, on behalf of all three of the Armed Forces, I congratulate and thank the company on taking this initiative."
