RWE Supply & Trading GmbH

Finance Graduate Programme

Here’s the deal…

Are you interested in the finance roles that underpin a leading European energy trading house? The RWE Finance Graduate Programme will give you a thorough understanding of working in different financial departments as well as how the RWE Group operates as a whole.

Our two-year Graduate Programme is unusual in that we allow you to choose your own four rotations. These six-month placements could take you across the UK and Europe or even further afield. Whether you are interested in controlling, credit risk, accounting, financing or portfolio management, it’s a brilliant opportunity to forge your own career path.

Who are we?

RWE Group is a powerful player in the transformation of the European energy system. Our two operational business fields are conventional power generation and energy trading. We also have a majority shareholding in innogy SE.

We currently have a power generation capacity of over 40,000 Megawatt and a workforce of around 14,000 people across 79 locations.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for bright and talented graduates with a proven passion for Finance. We want someone with a completed degree (BSc, MSc or PhD) in any discipline. A knowledge of IFRS/IAS and HGB would be ideal. We ask that you are fluent in English and German. If you have excellent communication skills teamed with strong analytical and numerical skills, you might be just the person we’re looking for. 

What do we offer?

We offer a competitive salary package, as well as benefits including:

  • company pension
  • private healthcare
  • financial assistance when moving from your base location
  • flexible benefits, including discounts at shops
  • on-site gym
  • free drinks and fruit
  • free eye care
  • paid subscription to membership of relevant associations, e.g - Young Energy Professionals

There’s a strong emphasis on support and development throughout your programme. You’ll be assigned a previous graduate as a buddy to share their experience and offer you support. You’ll also be able to choose a senior mentor from a pool of many, to advise you on rotations and introduce you to key people. Beyond the extensive graduate development programme, there are plenty of development opportunities on offer including networking events where you’ll meet senior managers and the boards.

Where will your career go next?

The only way is up! Many of our graduates are still working within the RWE Group long after their programmes have finished. We believe in supporting and nurturing talent, so there’s every chance your career could progress with us. And it’s an exciting time, as we expand into new markets and grow globally. The skills you gain during the Finance Graduate Programme are skills for life, and will provide you with a solid grounding for your future career.
