More information

Do you have a real passion for learning? Are you curious, like to challenge the status quo and ask “why?”. Do you love to play around with the latest innovative technologies, and believe that the world can be a better place through its use? If so, then the RWE IT Graduate Programme should be your next career move.?

Without the IT functions, we wouldn’t be at the forefront of the energy industry. Our Supply & Trading business wouldn’t be able to trade in new areas across the globe and our generation business wouldn’t be able to deliver power to millions of people.?

IT is not only critical to our business, driving efficiencies and innovation, but is planned to significantly increase size over the next 2 years, providing many exciting new opportunities.??

Over your 2 year programme you will:??

  • choose your four rotations from business areas such as Infrastructure Management, IT Security, IT Project Management, Application Development and Procurement Management?
  • work alongside experienced IT experts and some of the brightest and most creative people in the field?
  • contribute to real diverse and meaningful projects throughout the programme?
  • have a Mentor who supports you throughout the programme?

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.?
