That’s the deal
Ready to drive the success of a leading European energy trading house? Join us on this two-year graduate programme for a chance to gain experience in key business functions and forge your own career path across the UK, Germany or even further afield.
You’ll progress through four six-month placements of your own choosing, doing meaningful work and contributing to all aspects of the energy value chain. Areas you could gain exposure to include:

- Operational HR
- HR Marketing and Recruiting
- Trading Affairs
- New Business Implementation
- Lean Transformation
- Back Office, which covers the agreement and settlement of all trading deals
- ….and much more
We only deal with the best. So you’ll need to be a highly ambitious, hard-working team player who’s passionate about the energy industry and is keen to learn, grow and take accountability. Some relevant work experience would be an advantage but is not essential. What you must have is:
- Degree (BSc, MSc or PhD) in any discipline
- Strong analytical, numerical and interpersonal skills
- Excellent communication skills including fluent English
- Willingness to move between multiple locations
You’ll enjoy a competitive salary and benefits package including:
- Company pension

- Financial assistance when moving from your base location
- International rotations in the UK, Germany, and possibly further afield
- 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, you’ll be assigned an ex-graduate buddy and a senior mentor of your choice 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.
And after the programme? The only way is up! Around 80% of our graduates are still working with us long after their programmes have finished. So the skills you gain should provide the perfect springboard for your future career.
Please note that it is mandatory to upload your CV and cover letter in English. You will need to submit these as one document to apply.
