RWEST General Business Graduate Programme

That’s the deal 

Can you see yourself working in the business functions that underpin a leading European energy trading house? Would you like to learn from industry experts? Do you want to be able to forge your own career path, doing four six-month placements of your own choosing that could take you across the UK and Germany or even further afield? Then our General Business Graduate Programme is the perfect opportunity for you. 

Over the course of the two-year programme, you’ll rotate through a variety of business areas such as: 

  • Project Management 
  • Communications and Events 
  • Operational HR 
  • HR Organisational Development 
  • HR Marketing & Recruiting 
  • Compliance 
  • Regulatory Affairs 
  • Lean Transformation 
  • Back Office, which covers the agreement and settlement of all trading deals. 

All our Graduates can design their own career path by choosing rotations which fits best to their skills and field of interest. Across your rotations, you’ll have opportunities to carry out diverse and meaningful work while contributing to all aspects of the energy value chain. 

Your Potential 

We are looking for bright, talented graduates with a proven passion for the energy industry. Your degree (BSc, MSc or PhD) can be in any discipline, as long as you have strong analytical, numerical and communication skills. We also need you to be fluent in English. 

Advantageous, but not a must 

  • Relevant work experience 

Our Opportunity 

You’ll enjoy a competitive salary and benefits package including: 

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

To help you get the most out of the programme, we’ll assign you a previous graduate as a buddy and allow you to select your preferred senior mentor who can advise you on rotations and introduce you to key people within the business. We also offer a wide range of development opportunities, including networking events where you’ll get to meet senior managers and the management board. 

Where will your career go next? 

The only way is up! Around 80% of our graduates are still working within the company long after their programmes have finished – and the skills you gain on our General Business Graduate Programme will provide you with the perfect springboard for your future career.
