About Centrica

Centrica plc is an international energy and services company that focuses on satisfying the changing needs of its customers. It has around 25 million customer accounts and a worldwide workforce of over 36,000 employees. It operates mainly in the UK, Ireland and North America through strong brands such as British Gas, Bord Gáis and Direct Energy.

As the world of energy changes, Centrica will maintain its position as a top 50 FTSE 100 company by continuing to deliver high levels of customer service, engagement and loyalty. It is also developing innovative products, offers and solutions for its customers and, in 2017, launched a new venture ‘Centrica Innovations’, which will identify, incubate and accelerate new technologies.

Centrica’s graduate programme gives graduates from a broad range of degree disciplines the chance to gain a comprehensive grounding in the business, and there are opportunities to explore various areas of the organisation including Connected Home, Energy Supply & Services, Distributed Energy & Power and Energy Marketing & Trading.

Those graduates who are ambitious and commercially savvy have an outstanding opportunity to make a big impact within this diverse organisation, implementing and ultimately helping to shape the strategy that enables it to grow. Along the way, they can expect excellent support and rewards, and the chance to fulfil their potential.

Centrica also offer a ten-week summer placement programme – a great opportunity for students to gain valuable work experience and, potentially, secure a graduate role the following year.
