Bring your ideas. Make ours possible!

In a world of impossible ideas, you can help us make them possible. Right now, at EDP, we are undergoing a period of deep transformation that will open a world of possibilities.

Our 3D challenges are Decarbonization, by generating cleaner energy, Digitalization, by transforming us into a more digital utility and Downstream, by empowering consumers in our value chain.

With you, we want to achieve the impossible and make an impact in the world. Through the EDP Trainee Program, we will give you the tools to develop yourself professionally and personally. You will also have the chance to get to know and influence different business areas and, in most cases, have an international mobility experience.

Two profiles in a world of possibilities

Welcome to our world of possibilities! At EDP you can contribute in very different areas, that we have structured in two profiles – Tech or Business. The basic requirement is being adventurous. So, if you are available for job rotation, international mobility, can communicate in English and are willing to learn Portuguese, this is your program! You will need to have full-time availability starting in January 2019.
