Shaping the digitalisation of the future

As a global player, RWE is a pioneer in the European energy market. We owe this leading position not least to our IT and Infrastructure & Provider Management (IPM) divisions, whose innovative technologies keep us on a successful course. Plus, in Amazon, Apple, IBM, Microsoft and SAP we have strong partners at our side who support us along our way.

What are we still missing?
Your technical skills and fresh ideas.

As part of our graduate programme, you will get to know the IT & IPM divisions of the RWE Group first hand, set your own priorities and be able to put your expertise to full use. With on-the-job training and a balanced mix of online learning, face-to-face workshops and technical training, we prepare you for the challenges of the future.
