Iberdrola launches its International Graduate Program to hire and train young talent

  • The company anticipates hiring 164 recent graduates or young people with less than two years of work experience this year
  • New hires will be offered a two-year training program that includes at least six months of international experience

Iberdrola launches its International Graduate Program with the purpose of attracting and hiring young talent and anticipating future needs arising from its ambitious growth plan.

This initiative is addressed to recent graduates or people with less than two years of work experience. Individuals selected to join the company will be offered a two-year training plan that includes job rotation through different Iberdrola’s areas and businesses, and at least a six-month international assignment at the Group’s headquarters around the world.

In 2022, the company is offering 164 positions related to engineering, big data, data analytics, cybersecurity, besides other degrees including business administration and management, economics, and law.

Iberdrola’s operating plan will create  500 new jobs for graduates in strategic fields in the next five years. Through its International Graduate Program, the Group may anticipate and ensure coverage with the best talent.

Thus, the company is moving towards training future specialists and leaders in the face of an anticipated shortage of STEM (sciences, technologies, engineering and mathematics) professionals in the coming years. The demand for profiles in these fields is expected to increase by up to 14% in Europe and by 24% in the United States in this decade.

For the selection of candidates, besides academic records and language skills, other factors such as willingness to work in different countries and readiness to develop in multiple areas of expertise will be taken into account.

The deadline for submitting applications begins today. Interested parties can find all the details and complete an application in the Talent section on Iberdrola’s website.

Iberdrola Group’s International Graduate Program is born as the company’s commitment to young talent and equal opportunities in the countries where it develops its activity. In addition to complete their training, the selected parties will have the opportunity to develop their career at a global energy leader, a key to energy transition.

The creation of quality employment is a strategic pillar of the company’s social commitment, which plans to hire nearly 20,000 new recruits by 2025. In the last year alone, the company has hired more than 5,600 people, 36% of them were younger than 30 years old.

This engagement with human capital is the result of the company’s investing effort and growth plans, with investments over 75,000 million euros by 2025, with which Iberdrola will double its current renewable capacity and move forward in smart grids and the electrification of the economy.
