How to apply

Ready to improve life for our customers?

Want to create a better tomorrow for all? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Hopefully by now, you’ll have a good idea of what E.ON is all about: who we are, what we do, and how we like to work.

This section will help you take things further. It will also explain how we assess your application.

Before you start

We want the right people. You want the right company.

To make sure we’re right for each other, we judge all applications against four main competencies. We want to see these competencies shine through throughout the application process. Think carefully about how you’ll demonstrate them – it could make all the difference to your success.

Non-EU students requiring a visa

Graduates: Unfortunately, we are unable to offer sponsorship for our graduate scheme. If you are applying, you must be able to demonstrate your right to live and work in the UK on a full time basis.
Year in Industry and Summer Placements: If you are studying at a university with a Tier 4 licence, you are welcome to apply for one of our 48-week Year in Industry placements. The UK Border Agency can offer further advice about working in the UK as a non-EEA national.

How we assess your application

What we're looking for and why.

  • Understanding the business
    You should understand the energy market, and show that you’re really focused on your customers and able to work to improve your own particular business area.

  • Embracing change
    You are open to change within organisations – and give these initiatives your full support.

  • Enhance teamwork
    You should be able to build strong, effective relationships, showing real empathy and support for others.

  • Personal impact
    You act reliably. You support diversity. And you’re always eager to develop your own skills and knowledge.

So you've applied.

What happens next?

  • Online application and auto CV screen
    This will make sure you have the right qualifications and, in some cases, are studying the right degree subject.
    The online applications will become available shortly.

  • Situational judgement questionnaire
    We’ll explain a number of scenarios – and you’ll pick the best way to respond.

  • Online testing
    These online psychometric tests will assess your numerical and verbal reasoning abilities.

  • Your telephone interview
    Your chance to really shine. We’ll be particularly interested in hearing about your motivations for applying.

  • Our assessment centre
    This is a whole day assessment centre, where you’ll be assessed against our Leadership Competencies. (We’ll let you know more about these nearer the time.)
