Professional and Support

Generation Apprentice

Your career starts here

As an E.ON apprentice, you could get involved with some seriously big projects - projects that will change the way we supply energy to people's homes forever.

What's more, you'll be taking home a proper wage while you do it, and gaining all the right qualifications to build an exciting career in the energy industry.
You'll need four GCSEs at grades A-C including Maths, English and either a Science or Technical subject to get started. Then you just need to choose which scheme to apply for:

  • Electrical distribution - With your help we'll always have a constant energy supply, so everyone gets the power they need at the flick of a switch. It's a tough job, and one that will see you working with the very latest technology as we continue to develop, improve and ultimately replace the distribution network.
  • Generation - Working in our power stations, we'll teach you to spot and repair faults, keep our generators and turbines running smoothly and learn all about the control systems we rely on to keep supplying energy to the grid.
  • Technician - If you've got big ideas, this could be the place for you. We're always thinking up new ways to improve the way we work, and looking at all the new technology that could help us do it. So this is your chance to really work at the cutting edge of our industry.

The schemes take up to four years to complete, and you'll be supported all the way by our excellent Engineering Academy and your own E.ON mentor.

Applications for this year aren't open yet, but if you're interested in applying for an apprenticeship programme starting in 2010 please register your interest here   and we'll keep in touch.
