Welcome to QHSE Europe
You’ll be part of QHSE Europe Management team where you, together with your colleagues, will contribute to the QHSE Europe Strategy and develop a high performing team with the other QHSE Europe functions, i.e., Supply QHSE Management and QHSE Operations.  Moreover, you’ll engage with multiple stakeholders across the Ørsted Europe Development and EPC organisations to continuously monitor our business needs, ensuring that your function addresses them.
