RWE Campus in Essen

Our headquarter in the middle of the lively Ruhrgebiet

RWE Image RWE Image

The RWE Campus, the headquarter of RWE, is located where RWE has its roots. 120 years ago it was built in the north of Essen. Now a modern, spacious and attractive workplace – home to almost 3,000 colleagues from the different segments of RWE.

Working at our RWE Campus

We are pretty sure - you will enjoy working at our new Campus! During the summer of 2021, less than three years after the foundation stone was laid in August 2018, RWE employees moved into the new RWE Campus at RWE Platz in the Altenessen district of Essen. Thanks to various room modules, the RWE Campus offers employees the opportunity to work flexibly and creatively – of course equipped with the necessary technical devices.

Fancy a joint lunch with the team or a coffee with someone you work with in one of the RWE wide projects? A company restaurant, a cafeteria and a barista area are at your choice. Or would you rather enjoy the sun in one of the outside areas? Networking has never been easier.

You have children? Love to shop online? Think the lunchbreak is not for lunch but for sports? No worries - to make life easier and support your work-life balance, a day-care centre for your children or the Health Centre, which have both been recently expanded, just wait for you to join. Not to speak of the DHL automated parcel station only to be used by employees and our Campus Corner, a small supermarket with a selected range of products, which ensures that you can provide yourself with everything during the working day that the canteen or bistro do not offer and – maybe even more important – that  you do not have to look into an empty fridge at home in the evening.

BTW – you don’t have to be at the Campus every day. Of course we also offer and support hybrid working models that suit your personal needs.

RWE Campus in Essen is a Bicycle-Friendly Employer: Awarded the "Gold" Certificate

Since 2017, the German Cyclists' Federation (ADFC) has been awarding the EU-wide "Bicycle-friendly Employer" (information in German) certification. In the fall of 2022, the RWE Campus in Essen received the coveted "Gold" seal.

Sara Tsudome, project manager at the ADFC national association, says: "RWE supports employees who use bicycles to get to work with many different measures. This brings many advantages: The employer can thus score points in company health, environmental and mobility management." 

This benefits all employees who come to work by bike, but of course also us as a company. People who come to work by bike have an average of one-third fewer sick days - and a lower risk of infection. Bike-friendly measures contribute to corporate environmental management and are an essential part of sustainable mobility management - because employee mobility is also part of the carbon footprint.

And who should that suit better than us? After all, our purpose is: Our energy for a sustainable life.
