RWE Supply & Trading is a leading European energy trading house and a significant entity on the global wholesale markets for energy and energy-related raw materials in both their physical and/or derivative forms. We are part of the RWE Group – a powerful player in the transformation of the European energy system.

We trade in energy and energy-related raw materials including power, gas, coal, freight, oil, weather derivatives, biomass, emissions certificates and renewable energies. We are responsible for the economic optimisation of power generation and the entire non-regulated gas business of the RWE Group, including all procurement, storage and LNG-related activities.

At our headquarters in Essen, Germany, you’ll find the largest and most sophisticated energy trading floor in Europe. We also have trading floors in London and Swindon, and operate in Den Bosch, Geneva, Prague, Singapore, New York, Mumbai and Jakarta. We continue to expand into new markets and grow globally. Our highly-skilled team consists of around 1,500 employees from 40 countries.

Our two-year Graduate Programmes are unlike any others with four different routes on offer: Commercial, General Business, Finance and IT.

You get to choose your four rotations, each lasting six months. Whether you are interested in proprietary trading, finance, analytical functions or business support roles, you have the opportunity to shape your own career path. This allows you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the company as a whole and find your best fit. Whichever route you choose, you’ll be making a difference within your team right from the beginning.

Our Graduate Programmes have three main locations: Swindon in the UK, Essen in Germany, or Singapore. You will be given a base location for contractual purposes but you can choose a rotation in any of our locations, including London. Industrial Placements will be based in Swindon or London.
Every graduate will have a personalised training & development plan which starts with being assigned a buddy even before you start with us. Your programme will include formal training sessions with your fellow graduates, networking events to explore future opportunities and you’ll receive mentoring from senior and more experienced colleagues. With many other opportunities to learn, you’ll have guidance to ensure you’re developing both professionally and personally along the way. Over 80% of our graduates continue to progress with us long after their Graduate Programme finishes.

All graduate roles start in September 2020, although it may be possible to start sooner. Industrial Placements start in July 2020.

We are interested in candidates from all degrees disciplines, but mainly Maths, Physics, Engineering, Economics, Informatics, Business Administration or a comparable course.

We need candidates who deliver results and get the job done in a reliable way, who are socially confident and engaging in order to be able to network and communicate at every level. Furthermore we are looking for motivated and ambitious people who are keen to learn and develop themselves.
