Year in Industry – Commercial Leadership

Year in Industry – Commercial Leadership

We have an opportunity to join our 2019 Commercial Leadership Year in Industry Scheme.


E.ON is a privately-owned international energy company. Our 40,000 colleagues in 13 countries work daily towards the improvement of technical innovations and user-friendly customer solutions for the new energy world. We are the first large energy company to focus more heavily upon the energy of the future through our three business areas of energy networks, renewable energies and customer solutions.


E.ON provides electricity and gas to millions of homes and businesses here in the UK. It’s incredibly complex work. It takes the talents of thousands of people to do what we do. Yet our vision is a simple one. We want to be the trusted energy partner for our customers. We’re doing that by making energy cleaner and simpler to understand. We’re also doing it by being genuinely helpful people and treating our customers fairly.

Apply online 

E.ON is committed to equal opportunities and actively promotes diversity, equality and flexibility.


You’ll need:

To be working towards a degree, which may well be in Business, IT or Engineering.

  • A strong understanding of what B2B means to a business like ours and how exceptional account management helps us to maximise our potential.
  • A natural flair for sales but with true focus on meeting customer needs.
  • And, at the end of that journey, you’ll be proud to say that you were part of the generation that changed everything. And with a career ahead of you that’s as sustainable as the energy you brought to it.

Additional Information

To avoid disappointment, we strongly advise you to apply well in advance. Our schemes attract great interest and we may have to close a scheme early if all the places are filled.

Please remember that we only want you to apply for the role you think is most suitable for you, and therefore you may only apply for one scheme.

Due to the nature of this role a DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) check maybe required.


Location: Coventry / Nottingham (depending on placement)
Annual Salary: £17,500

Here at E.ON, we harness energy from all manner of places. From the air and the earth. From older, reliable sources and newer, sustainable ones. And the way we’ll bring energy into our customers’ homes in future will be shaped by the next generation of leaders – people just like you.

Our Commercial Leadership Year in Industry puts you at the heart of our Business To Business (B2B) operation. You’ll work with major blue chip clients, as well as institutions such as hospitals and universities, whose contracts with us represent huge amounts of money for the business.

This is an unmatched opportunity to be fast-tracked onto our Graduate Scheme, if you do well. Meaning that, in two-to-five years time, you could be managing a major client with responsibility for a significant portion of our B2B turnover. Alternatively, you might end up reporting into the National Operations Manager as you assist on the progress of major projects or managing a large team of B2B sales operatives.
