Growing your potential

Come and have a look inside RWEST and you will undoubtedly see the impact that our graduates have on our company. Many of our Managers and Traders came through the Programme themselves and so you will see first-hand, that we believe in growing your potential and investing in your future.

The Commercial Graduate Programme is well established and valued within our trading business. Therefore, it is no surprise, that as we expand into new markets and locations, so does our Graduate Programme. We have been trading in energy for many years now and are looking for graduates who will help build and expand on the successes we’ve created.

That’s the deal

The Graduate Programme will last for two years and in this time you will carry out four rotations, each lasting six months.

Your graduate journey will begin in Swindon in the UK, and as you choose rotations to enhance your skills and knowledge, you could travel internationally to Essen (Germany), London (UK), and Singapore.

You will be given the chance to choose your own rotations and can opt from any area of our business including proprietary trading of energy commodities (power, coal, gas, oil, LNG), Commercial Asset Optimisation, Freight & Logistics (Shipping), Sales & Origination or analytical functions such as Structuring & Valuation, Risk Management or Data Science. You could also choose to work in our business support functions such as Back Office or Finance Controlling.

With the option to rotate into a wide range of exciting and stimulating areas, you will carry out diverse and meaningful work throughout your graduate journey. In order to become a well-rounded industry expert, you will complete at least one of your rotations in a non-trading function so you have a broad awareness of the business.

No matter which rotations you choose, you will be given the skills and knowledge required to succeed during your time on the Graduate Programme and beyond.
