September 1, 2023 – Copenhagen:

Copenhagen Offshore Partners (COP), a global leader in offshore wind development and construction, has welcomed 24 new colleagues into offices around the world as part of the group’s Global Graduate Program. This is the second cohort of Global Graduates inducted into the program since it launched in 2021. Participants were selected following a competitive application and review process which saw more than 1,800 applicants apply from around the world. 

COP’s Global Graduate Program is a full-time, 24-month rotation program that offers recent graduates and early career professionals immersive training, learning, and mentoring across the offshore wind project value chain. The program is focused on growing the next generation of experienced offshore wind talent and leaders around the world. Following the completion of the program, graduates will have the opportunity to join COP in permanent positions. 

‘’As an offshore wind development leader, we have the desire and responsibility to develop the next generation of talent in order to accelerate the global energy transition,’’ said Jytte Svensen, Head of People and Communications. “The COP Global Graduate Program not only offers a dynamic development experience to fully immerse participants into the complex world of offshore wind, but it also empowers participants to be bold, take on responsibility, and forge a unique career path. We can’t wait to see what this new cohort achieves over the next two years.”
