About RWE

The RWE Group plays a crucial role in power system operations and security of supply across Europe. Our portfolio of businesses include RWE Supply & Trading which is a leading European energy trading house and an active player on the global wholesale markets for energy and energy-related raw materials and services. This includes power, gas, coal, freight, oil, weather derivatives, biomass, emissions certificates and renewable energies. We are responsible for the economic optimisation of power generation and the entire non-regulated gas business of RWE. We also provide commodities solutions to around 500 large customers and use our trading knowledge to invest allocated capital in commodity-driven assets and companies.

At our headquarters in Essen, Germany, you’ll find the largest and most sophisticated energy trading floor in Europe. We also have trading floors in London and Swindon. We continue to expand into new markets and grow globally. Our highly-skilled team consists of around 1,500 employees from 40 countries.

Our two-year graduate programmes are unlike any others with four different routes on offer: Commercial, Support Function, Finance and IT.

You get to choose your four rotations each lasting six months. Whether you are interested in proprietary trading, finance, analytical functions or business support roles, you have the opportunity to shape your own career path. This allows you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the company as a whole and find your best fit. Whichever route you choose, you’ll be making a difference within your team right from the beginning.

Our graduate programmes have four main locations: Swindon, London, Essen and Singapore. You will be given a base location for contractual purposes but you can choose a rotation in any of our locations. Industrial Placements will be based in Swindon or London.

We are interested in candidates from all degree disciplines, but mainly Maths, Physics, Engineering, Economics, Informatics, Business Administration or a comparable course.

We need candidates who deliver results and get the job done in a reliable way, who are socially confident and engaging in order to be able to network and communicate at every level. Furthermore we are looking for motivated and ambitious people who are keen to learn and develop themselves.
