That´s the deal

The programme is two years in duration and will see you carry out four rotations of six months each. You will be given the chance to choose your own rotations and can opt from any area of our business including proprietary trading of energy commodities (power, coal, gas, oil, LNG), Commercial Asset Optimisation, Origination, Commodity Solutions or analytical functions such as Structuring & Valuation or Risk Management. You could also choose to work in our business support functions such as Back Office or Finance Controlling. Our locations for international rotations include Essen (Germany), London and Swindon (UK), as well as Singapore.

Make your future career a done deal! With the option to rotate into a wide range of exciting and stimulating areas, you will carry out diverse and meaningful work throughout your graduate programme. In order for you to become a well-rounded industry expert, you will complete at least one of your rotations in a non-trading function so you have broad awareness of the business. No matter which rotations you choose, you will be given the skills and knowledge to succeed during your time on the graduate programme and beyond.

Are you excited about new markets and a growing business on a global scale and looking for the ideal foundation to flourish whilst working alongside experienced industry experts?    Great – we are looking for bright emerging talents who want to launch their career within a leading European trading house!
