Company description:

E.ON provides electricity and gas to millions of homes and businesses here in the UK. It’s incredibly complex work. It takes the talents of thousands of people to do what we do. Yet our vision is a simple one. We want to be the trusted energy partner for our customers. We’re doing that by making energy cleaner and simpler to understand. We’re also doing it by being genuinely helpful people and treating our customers fairly.

Job description:

We are looking for a Year in Industry Engineering Governance Undergraduate to join our team in Nottingham. Year in Industry - Engineering Governance Undergraduate Our customers’ safety means everything to us at E.ON. To deliver safety, we ask three questions of all our products. What can go wrong? What systems are in place to prevent things going wrong? Do we know these systems will work if needed? They’re questions you’ll soon become very familiar with.

What you’ll do

This is a Year in Industry placement where you’ll learn close-up the technical, legal and commercial risks an organisation like ours faces. You’ll help in the ongoing review, development and improvement of our Independent Review of Integrity and Safety (IRIS) framework – an eight-step process which helps assess risk, answers our questions and maps out solutions. This includes:

•Creating a consistent risk assessment methodology and risk reporting framework
•Facilitating a gap analysis for UK businesses
•Developing an incident response process for safety-related incidents
•Creating a channel to share safety-related best practice and learnings.

This placement could well prepare you for a future with us. Shine and we may fast-track you to the last stage of assessment for one of our graduate schemes. Equally, with the chance to explore our business whilst you’re here, you never know what other career opportunities it could lead to.

Required profile:

What we’re looking for

•You’re working towards a 2:1 engineering degree.
•You’re eager to learn methodologies – such as Bowtie / HAZOP / HAZID – that support our IRIS framework (if you don’t already have some working knowledge of them already).
•You have a good knowledge of Microsoft packages, such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
•You’re willing to challenge the status quo and search for ways to do things better.
•Ideally, you have some German language skills.
