Graduate Development Programme
If you’re passionate about the energy sector, enjoy strategic challenges, and yearn to develop solutions in a rapidly changing environment, then the Graduate Development Programme could be the entry point for you.
Each year we select only a handful of the most talented graduates with degrees in mathematics, physics, economics, engineering, business administration or other disciplines directly related to the energy trading business to take part in an 18 month, tailor-made rotational programme. The programme offers you deep insight into the energy supply & trading business by rotating you through 3 six month periods in various business functions. You’ll be given the chance to seek out your own projects and to identify placements that play to your strengths and have the option to work out of the different countries where we operate. If you think like an entrepreneur and are ready to get hands-on, we want to hear from you.
Designed to develop your personal strengths, the programme also offers professional career coaching, expert trainings and the opportunity to participate at various networking events.

In addition, you will attend our IT graduate training programme to develop formal skills and qualifications in either Business Analysis, Project Management or Software Engineering.
The scheme is rotational and aims to develop young talent for different areas of our internal IT organisation. By rotating through three different areas over 18 months, graduates will get a well-rounded overview and develop a variety of skills within IT. Rotations are located in Essen and Swindon.
