Why does EDP have a Trainee Program?

To achieve all our goals, at EDP, we aim to attract, develop and retain diverse profiles with high potential through the various professional opportunities that we create. 

Each edition of the EDP Trainee Program is a new opportunity for us to invite young people from all over the world to join an outstanding group, develop personally and professionally through this experience and actively participate in one of the most attractive trainee programmes on the market.

Does the EDP Trainee Program look for any specific profile?

We're looking for more than technical skills and academic knowledge. We're looking for people who want to put their ambition and talent into play. If you want to be part of EDP and help us create a greener future, we want to meet you!

Will you ask me about my grades?

Yes, we will ask you about your grade point average. This is information that we need to collect but it is not a key point in your application. For us a person is much more than the grade point average, she/he is the sum of multiple aspects. Nevertheless, since this is an element of reference and each country has a different grading system, we provide a table where you can see the equivalency of your grades to the Portuguese system. This way you can choose the correct option!

You can consult the comparison of grading systems, HERE.

Will you ask me about my level of English? If so, how can I verify which is my level?

Yes, we are present in several parts of the world, which makes English fundamental. To make it easier for you and to guarantee that you know which level better describes you, we provide a small table with the description of each level. This applies not only to English but to any other languages, as we would love to know more about your communication skills!

    As EDP is a Portuguese company, do I need to know Portuguese before applying?

    No, it is not mandatory for you to know Portuguese to apply to EDP Trainee Program.

    Is the EDP recruitment process inclusive?

    To attract different profiles we created a flexible and inclusive recruitment process to the different needs of our candidates. If you have any special need, you only have to share with us this information during the application (on the application forms).

    Can I already know what will be the main moments of the Recruitment Process?

    The EDP Trainee Program recruitment process consists of: an online application, online tests and a video interview (asynchronous), an online assessment, and a final interview - all these stages will take place in a completely digital format.

    Applications are open until December 4, and the recruitment process starts from the moment you complete your application. 

    Do I receive a salary during the EDP Trainee Program?

    Yes, as a Trainee you will receive a competitive monthly base salary! In addition, you will get benefits such as health insurance. Also, we will cover your travel expenses related to your possible international job rotations, in accordance to the company international mobility policy.

    Can I expect to stay at EDP once the program ends?

    Yes, that is the main goal of the EDP Trainee Program. We invest to retain as we want you to continue your professional path with us!

    I would like to apply for this program, but I have a special requirement.
