New trainees in Statkraft

05 Sep, 2016

A group of engineering, economics and strategic management graduates started their career in Statkraft this week.

Statkraft is a popular employer among students worldwide. For this year's trainee program Statkraft received 1340 applications.

Statkraft's International Trainee Programme is a two-year program with four different work rotations, of which at least one will be abroad. The trainees are recruited by a specific department, where they will continue in a new position upon completion of the programme.

Many of Statkraft's trainees have a background from engineering or economics, but Statkraft also hires young and promising talents with other majors. The common denominator among today's trainees is a strong commitment to renewable energy and the task of solving the climate challenge, interest in technology and solid academic performance.

The trainee programme gives candidates a thorough introduction to the organisation, operations and strategy. They are given a permanent position as a trainee in one of Statkraft’s business or staff areas, and a tailor-made rotation programme with a dedicated manager to ensure their learning and development.
