Application Advice:

Show your passion for trading and commodities. No one has a degree in commodities trading so it is vital to show what you have done either extra curricular wise or work experience wise which exhibits an interest in the industry and company.

Interview Advice:

Research. Be up to date with current affairs. Macro drivers for global commodities such as Oil and freight. If you talk about something specific in your application - make sure you can back it up with the knowledge on the day!

Application Advice:

Any evidence which shows you have an interest in commodity trading helps. If you're part of a relevant society then make sure you contribute to it rather than just being a member.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you come prepared, having read up on recent news events and thought about how these might affect RWEST.
Remember to be natural - the interviewers are testing both whether you're skilled enough to work here, but also whether they'd want to work with you as a person. If you're not a fit on a personality level then you wouldn't enjoy working here anyway.

Application Advice:

Make use of your experiences in university and outside, e.g. work experience, volunteering, internships working abroad. A broad range of experience is really good and shows the adaptability required for the graduate scheme.
Stand out but in a good way. What is different about your experiences?

Interview Advice:

The same as the application. Show you have diverse experience and skills. Also, be yourself. I know everyone says this, but being relaxed and friendly makes such a difference. It is a friendly company so during the assessment centre chat with other graduates and the assessors!

You should be passionate about energy and trading in particular bringing along an intrinsic interest in relevant topics.
Strong analytical skills as well as basic programming skills are beneficial.

Application Advice:

Anyone applying should have a genuine interest in energy markets.
If in addition you also have quantitative skills and get along with people, you should do well during the application process.

Interview Advice:

The application process consists of interviews, analytical tasks, soft-skill tasks.. Again, if you have an authentic interest in energy markets it will give you an advantage that is otherwise hard to emulate.

Application Advice:

Do your research on the company and the specific markets in which we operate (which are now quite varied.) They are not interested in your keenness to work in the London financial markets but your interest in the Energy business and the company itself.

Interview Advice:

Online tests, phone interviews and assessment centre. Your standard mix. The online tests are certainly not the easiest.

Application Advice:

Be completely honest with everyone in the process. Qualifications get your foot in the door but they hire you based on whether or not they can see themselves working with you.

Interview Advice:

Telephone interview: Mix of both technical and non-technical questions.
Assessment Centre: Team based and individual tasks. As well as seeing how you think, interviewers look for what kind of a person you are and how you communicate and get on with others.

Best:

Friendly nature of staff. People are always willing and keen to explain things to you and engage with you - right up to senior management. As an example, whilst based in Germany on my first rotation - an RWEST board member took me out for a one to one dinner for no particular reason than just to get to know me! I can't imagine many other companies of this size having board members do something similar.

Worst:

That all of the trading desks aren't based in London.
