Why Abengoa?

Abengoa is an organisation with more than 70 years of history, globally renowned for the talent of its human team and for its technological leadership in renewable energy and environment sectors. Few companies in the world are as committed to our planet.

As companies, we have a responsibility to participate in social progress, creating wealth in a way that is good for the environment and society. At Abengoa we therefore look after our people and try to minimise the social and environmental impact of our activities.

Abengoa's true competitive advantage lies in its people, whose preparation, effort and commitment provides the necessary excellence to allow the company to differentiate itself through its achievements and results.

Abengoa's human resources policies are strengthened by searching for and creating the ideal conditions so that its employees can grow personally and professionally, encouraging the development of talent as a key component in achieving outstanding performance. Commitment, motivation, initiative and dedication are the core principles of our team of professionals.

Professional development

The pursuit and realisation of excellence requires investment and dedication in the professional development of every person at Abengoa. Every member of our team has a personalised career plan with training that is tailored to their needs, concerns and expectations and which is adapted to their evolution and situation each year. The challenges and goals of our professionals are only limited by their imagination.
