Exploration and Production Graduate Scheme

E.ON is a truly international company, and my experience has been incredibly varied. My first placement was in Algeria, and I’m now in Norway exploring oil and gas in the Barents Sea. My day-to-day work at the moment sees me looking at seismic sound wave pictures to determine whether we should fund areas where there might be oil and gas. This is just one example of the exciting opportunities that are available in the Exploration and Production  (E&P) scheme.
 
E.ON E&P are an incredibly successful part of the E.ON Group and are expanding rapidly, so it’s a great time to work for this area of the business. I’ve received fantastic training opportunities, such as two field trips to Spain where I analysed rock samples, and an offshore survival course in Aberdeen. My biggest project involved locating a new area to drill an oil well – it costs £60 million to do this, so the responsibility I was given was massive. 
 
To anyone just starting their graduate scheme at E.ON, I would say pursue the opportunities that really excite you in order to get the most out of your scheme. Since starting my scheme I haven’t looked back.
