Commercial Graduate Programme

The Programme

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, Sales & Origination 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. Whilst at least one of your rotations will be in our Singapore office, there will be opportunities for international rotations including Essen (Germany), London (UK) and Swindon (UK).

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 scheme 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?

Learning, support and development

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.
