International Trainee program

Group of trainees

Get a head start on your career and help develop tomorrow's energy solutions as a trainee in Statkraft.

As a trainee you will become familiar with Statkraft's organisation, business and strategy. We offer permanent trainee positions in one of the company's staff or business areas, overseas assignments, competitive salaries and a tailor-made job rotation programme that will maximise your learning and development opportunities. In this way you can find your niche and become one of the best in your field.

What can you expect?

The tailored one-year programme includes three job rotations, at least one of which is usually overseas.

You normally start work at the beginning of September and get a permanent position in a department. There you will most likely be offered a new position after the programme is completed.

Your job rotations are determined based on your background and personal preferences, and in combination with the unit's need for expertise. The trainee programme will give you the opportunity to gain valuable insight into the different business areas and networks in Statkraft and to develop different skills and expertise.

Throughout the year you can also expect close follow-up, regular courses and joint gatherings with the other trainees.

You can try completely different positions, all the while contributing to the same overall purpose of powering a green future.
