Vattenfall recruitment staff was ready when busloads of engineering students from all over Jutland, Denmark, were heading for the Students’ Business Relations Fair in Aalborg on October 11-12 – the largest students fair in this part of the country. Vattenfall was there to meet engineering students, that one day may be our colleagues.
Recruitment Manager Bastiaan Moll and Lorraine Melissen, Employer Branding specialist flew in from Amsterdam the day before the opening of the fair to meet with Senior Policy & Communication Advisor Arne Rahbek from Vattenfall in Kolding. Together they worked on furnishing and preparing the stand, and they were there on the first day, together with colleagues from the business and the Danish Recruiter Jette Ingeberg.
Bastiaan Moll is expecting an increasing focus on recruitment among students in Denmark, not only due to the four Danish offshore wind farm projects in pipeline but mainly to secure our future competence needs.
“Now is the time for us to reach out for engineering students as well as technical specialists. We will need some 50 new recruits a year,” said Bastiaan Moll.
Lorraine Melissen, Employer Branding specialist said Vattenfall is ready to offer internships, graduate programs, a chance to do a master's thesis or a Ph.D. at Vattenfall.
“We will be too late if we don’t make ourselves known as the fantastic workplace Vattenfall is,” said Lorraine Melissen.
70 companies were present at the DSE Fair 2017 as thousands of students visited Aalborg during the fair.
