Work With Us

We are always looking for like-minded people and companies to work with

Belief, shared

If you share in our belief of impacting climate change effects with practical solutions rather than rhetoric and that it is possible to balance commercial needs with the environment then we would be keen to talk to you.  

Do you want to work in a culture which isn’t restricted by corporate rules and are willing to challenge the status quo then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Agile and independent

Vekta Group was founded on not just the belief that one person can make a difference but of how important it is to create a platform for change for our employees and partners that can grow organically with every new addition and venture.

We value being able to take an open, objective and independent standpoint while at the same time maintaining agility in our workload and decision-making process.

We want to grow as a business and we want to ensure our employees and partners have the opportunity to do the same.

No project too big or small

We welcome the opportunity to work on projects and technologies of a variety of types and sizes because we recognise the value in fighting climate change is not just purely about who can build the biggest wind farm.

It is also about enabling renewable technology to be scalable and workable in places from a single house to an off-grid village to a 1GW+ power station.

Finding new ways projects and technologies can successfully get to market is a powerful motivator. 

No rules culture

If you enjoy freedom from silos and want to explore your own projects and ideas alongside working on key projects that can practically impact climate change then don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

Climate change is everyone’s responsibility and it is going to take a different approach to business in order to make a big enough difference.

Teamwork & collaboration

Knowledge is power, but what use is knowledge if it isn’t passed on. There is decades worth of combined experience in the renewables industry within Vekta Group and we are keen to share this with both employees and partners.

We offer all our team mentoring and professional development opportunities and we don’t believe in silos or comfort zones.

We are also keen to develop partnerships with other like-minded businesses as fighting climate change isn’t a competition about who can make the biggest profit, it’s about how can we work together to make the biggest positive impact.
