At E.ON, we don’t just look after our customers.
We look after our own people too.
Our reputation as a good employer has been recognised with many awards in recent years – especially for our work in diversity and inclusion.
Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers
The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers is a definitive list of UK based organisations that promote inclusion across all protected characteristics, throughout each level of employment within their company. Representing the promotion of all strands of Diversity including Age, Disability, Gender, LGBT, Race, Faith & Religion, the inaugural list has highlighted a variety of organisations across different sectors.
2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017
E.ON has been named one of ‘The Top Graduate Companies To Work For’ by a popular graduate website. Described as a TripAdvisor for jobs, TheJobCrowd site hosts thousands of anonymous reviews written by graduate employees at various companies. The site then compiles a rankings list based on the strength of these reviews.
Rate My Placement
We have been recognised in RateMyPlacement's exclusive list of the Top 35 Medium-sized Undergraduate Schemes 2016-2017. We have also been listed as a Top 100 Undergraduate Employer for 2018-2019.
E.ON’s inclusive approach to disability recruitment has earned us Clear Assured status. This is awarded to organisations that are committed to best practice in disability recruitment (specifically, the “removal of barriers from recruitment policies, processes and practices which have the potential to exclude disabled people”).
We first became Clear Assured in 2010. However, it’s a status that has to be continuously earned, so we have taken a number of measures since then to further enhance our recruitment practices. For instance, we have invested significant resources into updating our careers website to make it more accessible to disabled people.
