Jobs for your talent
There is work to be done. The transition to green energy is an enormous challenge. Much is needed for the energy transition to succeed. Inventions and innovations that change the world. Companies that take a different approach, such as making their supply chain greener and bringing completely new products onto the market. And people, lots of people, who will get the job done. From mechanics to scientists, the energy transition will create a huge number of extra jobs. Everywhere, and especially in Groningen. Are you one of those energy talents? This is where you make the difference.
Not only technical professions
Green energy requires people who understand technology. Think of the mechanics who make sure that wind turbines and heat systems keep working properly. And the technicians who devise and build the systems. But the sustainable future goes beyond technology. This change requires researchers, experts in environmental legislation, advisors and consultants, salespeople and team leaders, communication officers and environmental psychologists... Whether you are a thinker or a doer, there is great work for you in the energy transition.
