EDF Trading is looking for undergraduates and graduates who are motivated to succeed in a fast-paced trading environment. You will be commercially astute, have strong analytical skills and a genuine interest in learning about energy commodities and the financial markets. Join us and you will be encouraged to critically assess processes, test your ideas in a rapidly evolving market and have responsibility for real business projects.

Join us for a unique 10-week paid internship that will be the envy of your fellow students and friends. We are looking for smart, entrepreneurial undergraduates and graduates to join our commercial trading and specialist functions such as Risk and IT.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside specialist experts, enabling you to build a solid foundation in the energy commodity markets.
