Are you interested in the finance roles that underpin a leading European energy trading house? Would you like to explore areas such as controlling, credit risk, accounting, financing and portfolio management? How about being able to forge your own career path, doing six-month placements of your own choosing that could take you across the UK and Europe or even further afield? Then our Finance Graduate Programme is the perfect opportunity for you.

The aim of the programme is for you to develop the skills, knowledge and experience you need to become a well-rounded finance professional. To this end, you will do four rotations across the following business areas:

> Controlling
> Credit Risk
> Accounting
> Financing
> Portfolio Management

As a global employer our remuneration and benefits differ from country to country to remain competitive in each local market. For contractual purposes your salary will be aligned to your base location but will be adjusted, if required, for rotations you may undertake in different locations. In addition to this, discretionary bonuses are available and a range of other benefits.

WHY CHOOSE US?

The Finance Graduate Programme allows you to rotate through every company within RWE so you gain a broad and wide-ranging understanding of finance from many different perspectives. Even better, you get to choose your own rotations, so you’ll have the opportunity to find out which areas of finance you enjoy and excel in the most. The programme also gives you access to very senior mentors from across the entire RWE group.

LEARNING, SUPPORT AND DEVELOPMENT

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.
