Commercial Graduate Programme

 

We would like to reassure students that, amidst the current Covid-19 Pandemic, we are still hiring for all our graduate programmes. Recruitment processes will be completed online during this unprecedented time and once you have applied, we will ensure you receive all relevant information regarding your application. For those who have been offered a role with us, or will soon be offered a role, we are committed to guaranteeing your employment and will keep in touch with you so you are still able to meet your colleagues before you join us. 

If you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact our graduate recruitment team here.

 

 

Are you ready to learn everything there is to know about working at a leading European energy trading house? The Commercial Graduate Programme will equip you with an understanding of how we operate as a company, and lay the foundations for your future career. You’ll be given significant exposure to all aspects of our value chain as you undertake four rotations. 
You get to choose four rotations within these business areas:

  • Proprietary trading of energy commodities (power, coal, gas, oil, LNG)
  • Commercial asset optimisation
  • Sales and origination
  • Analytical functions such as structuring and valuation or risk management
  • Principal investments, commodity solutions and other areas you may not expect to be part of a trading business.

One of your rotations will be in a non-trading function, to give you a broader knowledge of the business as a whole.

Application process in detail at...

Whichever path you choose, we’ll guide and support you as you take on challenging and exciting projects. Learning will be a mixture of online education, face to face workshops and technical on-the-job training. You’ll learn from industry experts, and be exposed to every aspect of the energy value chain.

You’ll be assigned a buddy, a previous graduate who will share their experience and offer support. They are there for you even before your first day so you’ll feel supported from the outset. You’ll also be able to choose a senior mentor from a pool of many, to guide you through your graduate journey. They will advise you on rotations and introduce you to key people in the business. 

You’ll be given development opportunities, including networking events where you will meet senior managers and the board.

Why choose us?

We were voted No.1 Energy & Utilities company for graduates to work for in 2017/18 by TheJobCrowd – the only ranking based on graduate reviews. Our employees value the Commercial Graduate Programme highly – perhaps as so many came via that route themselves. As a result, they are happy to share their knowledge and really help you flourish and progress. Most of our graduates are drawn to us because we allow you to choose your own rotations. This gives you the opportunity to find out which business areas you enjoy and excel in, while moving around the UK or abroad.
