Why us

Why the energy sector? And why us? We can think of lots of reasons.

Make a difference to people’s lives.

We’re proud to provide one of life’s essentials. But we also appreciate it costs money. That’s why we’re constantly developing new ways to make energy simpler. Through clearer bills and fewer tariffs, we’re making things more transparent for our customers. We’re also helping them cut their bills too – through free energy advice and innovations like SMART meters.

Protect the environment.

We are right there tackling important energy issues. We’re looking at new sustainable sources. We’re creating new technology. And we’re backing up our words with real investment too. Since 2011, we have committed an impressive €3bn to the development of renewable energy and climate protection measures. 

Enjoy proper training and development.

We see graduates as integral to our future. That’s why we’ll make a serious investment in your training and development. Following your own personal development plan, you’ll receive support for a professional qualification. Depending on your scheme, this could see you gaining Chartered Status, CIPD, CIMA or some other valuable qualification.

Enjoy a wide range of diverse placements.

We won’t fob you off with the photocopying. You’ll work on important projects – projects that are adding real value. What’s more, you’ll move around regularly. And there’ll be real flexibility in your placement, so you can develop in a way that suits you.

Get support from the top.

Senior Managers and the Board will take a big interest in you. And it's an interest that lasts long after the graduate programme has finished. You're the future of our business. So it's only natural that you'll meet with business leaders and we'll encourage your career development.
