Learning, support and development

No matter which path you choose, we will supervise and support you in the most demanding and exciting projects. The graduate programme is a mixture of online learning, face-to-face workshops and technical practical seminars. With the help of industry experts, a former graduate as a sponsor and a senior mentor, you will get to know the inner workings of the company and always have an expert contact partner on hand.

Your sponsor will be there for you from day one so that you feel well looked-after – right from the outset.

In addition to an extensive career development programme, networking events give you the opportunity to get to know senior management and members of the Management Board.

Why choose us?

We were voted the most popular employer in the energy and supply sector by TheJobCrowd 2017/18, the only British ranking based on ratings provided by university graduates. Our staff really appreciate the Support Function Graduate Programme – perhaps because this is also how they found their way to us. For this reason, they are happy to share their knowledge and help you to discover your potential as well as support you in your development. The majority of our university graduates decide to work for us because we offer them the option of choosing their own rotation schedule. This gives you the chance to find out which divisions you enjoy and are most important to you. At the same time, we allow you to live and work abroad, expand your intercultural skills and build up an internal global network.
