Are you ready to make an impact in the finance functions across the RWE group? The RWE Finance Graduate Programme will equip you with an understanding of how we operate as a company, and lay the foundations for your future career. You’ll be given significant exposure to all aspects of our value chain as you undertake four rotations.

You get to choose four rotations within these business areas:

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

You will have defined targets for each rotation so you can measure your success and ensure that you are performing to your full capability.


We are looking for graduates with:

> a passion for finance
> a 2:1 or above in any degree discipline
> a knowledge of IFRS/IAS and HGB (ideally)
> very strong analytical and numerical skills
> a highly motivated and proactive attitude, combined with the ability to work independently
> excellent communication skills, with fluent English
> the ability to learn quickly and take accountability
> a resilient and hardworking nature
> strong team-working skills
> relevant experience or internships in the energy or finance sector (beneficial, not essential)


The RWE Finance Graduate Programme is unique as it allows you to rotate through every company within RWE so you gain a broad and wide-ranging understanding of Finance from many different perspectives. Opportunities are far-reaching as you will have access to very senior mentors throughout the entire group. Within the programme you can also choose your rotations. This gives you the opportunity to find out which areas of Finance you enjoy and excel in most.


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.
