Job Description

We make what matters work.
 
At Eaton, we believe that power, whether it’s electrical, hydraulic or mechanical power -- is a fundamental part of people’s lives. Technology, transportation, energy and infrastructure—these are things the world relies on every day. That’s why  we are dedicated to helping our customers across the world find new ways to manage power more efficiently, safely and sustainably. And we’re committed to improving people’s lives, the communities where we live and work, and the planet our future generations will depend on. Because that’s what really matters–and  we’re here to make sure it works.
 
While our vision is to improve the quality of life and the environment through the use of power management technologies and services, our culture and what we value can be represented in six essential leadership attributes expected of all Eaton employees.
  • We’re ethical -- we play by the rules and act with integrity.
  • We’re passionate -- we care deeply about what we do. We set high expectations and we perform.
  • We’re accountable -- we seek responsibility and take ownership. We  do what we say.
  • We’re efficient -- we value speed and simplicity.
  • We’re transparent -- we say what we think. We make it okay to disagree.
  • We learn – we are curious, adaptable, and willing to teach what we know.
You want to make an impact in the world. At Eaton, we’re solving some of the toughest challenges on the planet. Our Early Talent Programs ensure that you have a multitude of opportunities to make an impact across a global organization. Participants in our Early Talent Programs work to solve real-world challenges while developing the skills required to lead at the next level. Early Talent assignments hold true significance to our businesses. In turn, participants gain enriching and diverse experiences and work side by side with experienced leaders to power their careers.

  • By keeping our programs small and selective, we are able to make hiring decisions based on each candidate’s unique skill set and high potential.
  • The opportunity to learn from senior leaders is a part of the fabric of every experience.
Your career matters – and we’re here to make it work. Are you ready?
