Many companies offer exceptional training, career progression opportunities and rewards. Energy and utility companies generally ask for a 2:2 (minimum) in a relevant subject.
Graduate schemes mean you'll learn through practical training and be supported by a mentor. You'll get your own personal development plan and attend various inductions and workshops to enhance your skills. With like-minded colleagues around you, you'll be part of a smart and supportive team.
