Toby Gadd - Commercial Graduate Scheme

The Commercial Graduate scheme at EDF Energy is unique in that it allows you to focus on a part of the energy industry that is dynamic and hugely competitive. I am particularly looking forward to my Customer Operations placement, as I think it will help me develop distinctive leadership skills.

I am currently completing a placement in the Digital Delivery and Planning team, dividing my time between our offices in Hove and Three Bridges. My team are responsible for our digital applications, including our online account, MyAccount, the website, the EDF Energy Apps and our internal quoting system. A typical day currently involves meeting with stakeholders to understand their objectives, liaising with our third party partners and scheduling and planning large scale projects.

The highlight of my time at EDF Energy so far has been organising and running a digital workshop at the Finance Leadership Event in Brighton. We presented to groups that included the CFO of EDF Energy and the Finance Director of the Customers business unit.

I’m motivated by the opportunity to learn a wide variety of skills that I can use to turbo-charge my career with the company in the long term and to be successful at EDF Energy I think it’s important to make the most of all the opportunities that are available, work hard and make sure you enjoy yourself.

My top tip for anyone applying is to demonstrate a good understanding of the dynamics of the energy market, on both the generation and retail side, and how these affect EDF Energy.

Training

Most of your learning will be on the job. But in addition to all the support, encouragement and guidance you receive from your mentor and rotational line managers, there may well be some technical training involved in certain rotations.

You will also have the opportunity to undertake training to develop your skills in key business areas such as communication and financial & commercial awareness.

Applying

Applications open early September.

We receive a large volume of applications to our Graduate Schemes each year and whilst we aim to consider everyone, our approach is to review and consider applications in the order that they are received. We may close some schemes earlier than the deadline of 16th December 2016 if we receive a large number of applications and therefore we would encourage candidates to apply early to avoid disappointment.
