EDP launches global recruitment campaign to attract talent

Monday 19, February 2024
  • EDP's recruitment plan is global and seeks the best professionals in specialised areas, that can apply until March 17
  • “The Earth is calling you to work with us. Will you answer this call?" is the motto of the campaign launched this week

EDP is launching a global recruitment campaign in search of the best professionals in the regions in which it operates: Europe, North America, South America and Asia-Pacific. In this recruitment process, the company is mainly looking for profiles associated with areas of greater specialisation - such as technology, science, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) - through which the company aims to strengthen its leadership position in the energy transition.

In an increasingly dynamic and competitive job market, EDP wants to attract and retain the best talent, in line with the objectives set out in its Business Plan. The company thus intends to strengthen a group that already has more than 13,000 employees of more than 60 nationalities.

With this in mind, EDP is now launching a new global positioning campaign under the creative motto "Earth is calling you to work with us. Are you answering this call?" This is the challenge that EDP is launching intending to attract the best talents who share the common ambition of working for a greener, more inclusive, and sustainable future.

EDP, as a recognised employer of first choice worldwide, wants to reinforce this position and its commitment to the group's principles of diversity, inclusion, and equity. International recognition through certifications - such as the one recently awarded by the Top Employer Institute, which distinguished EDP as one of the best companies to work for in 11 countries in 2024 - together with good results in terms of organisational climate, contribute to enhancing the work proposal at EDP, in line with its brand and current claim: "We Choose Earth".

The profiles EDP is looking for

Students, graduates and professionals with professional experience in more specialised areas can apply until 17 March for various job opportunities available through the link.

EDP offers a great chance for those who are studying or completing their training to enter the job market. The company provides the necessary assistance and resources to kickstart and advance a career. The application process is open to students who will finish their studies by August of this year or recent graduates with a maximum of three years' experience. EDP is particularly interested in engineering profiles, especially those with expertise in renewable energies and networks.

In the case of professionals who already have work experience, EDP is particularly looking for those with a special interest in the energy sector - having a background in innovation and sustainability will be a distinctive asset. Both in this case and for students, a command of the English language is one of the requirements to be valued in candidates.

As a global company, the opportunity to live a unique and unforgettable professional experience in different parts of the world, to create an international network of contacts and to join diverse teams are some of the strengths of the value proposition that EDP has to offer. An offer that includes several opportunities for different types of professional contracts in various geographies starting in April, an attractive and competitive compensation and benefits package, a flexible, safe, and balanced workplace.

As a global reference group and recognised as the most sustainable electricity company in the world by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, EDP is looking for the best professionals to join a project that promotes a culture of continuous development and knowledge sharing. A project that aims to have a positive impact on the planet, having set itself ambitious growth and sustainability targets: it will invest 25 billion euros in the energy transition by 2026, be 100% renewable by 2030 and net zero by 2040. The challenge is on.
