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.

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, 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.
