E.ON is one of the world’s largest power and gas companies. We provide electricity and gas to 35 million customers - over five million of them here in the UK. It’s incredibly complex work. Yet our vision is a simple one: we want to be the trusted energy partner for our customers.
What do we do?
At E.ON, we have an ambitious objective: to become our customers’ trusted energy partner. This means we’re doing everything we can to make energy simpler as well as cleaner for all our customers.
We provide power and gas to over five million customers and counting in the UK alone, providing homeowners and large businesses alike with technical innovation and a trusted service. We go exploring to discover new energy sources - in the North Sea and beyond. We manage 13 oil fields across the UK, Norway and Russia. We develop new technologies to help us reduce the environmental impact of fossil fuels. And since 2011, we have invested an impressive €3bn in renewable energy and climate protection measures.
Ten different graduate schemes
We offer ten schemes in all, lasting from 18 to 24 months. They cover a wide range of business areas, from Engineering and Finance to HR and IT & Business Change. Whichever scheme you’re on, you’ll get a view of the overall business - both in the UK and abroad, and an inside look at the people, processes and technology that are transforming energy today. Equally important, you’ll also gain a valuable professional qualification along the way - such as chartered status (engineers), CIPD (HR) or CIMA (finance).
Two types of undergraduate placements
We also offer two types of undergraduate schemes: one for Engineering and another for Commercial. Lasting 48 weeks, they’ll give you an inside look at how we’re changing the industry each and every day. So whether you’re supporting our research and development activities, or helping to define our IT or Finance strategy, you’ll gain experience that will shape your future - and make a big difference to us, too.
