On the four year programme, you will rotate around the business:
In Power Generation, you will gain exposure to a large and varied production portfolio, ranging from gas-fired power stations to wind farms. Within Centrica Energy Upstream you will be part of a team making exciting strides within exploration and production. During your time at Centrica Storage, you will gain unique insights into a high-profile and strategically important gas storage environment.
A carefully-structured development programme will give you the opportunity to achieve your full potential.

Most of all, you will be encouraged to hammer away at new skills and constantly build on your knowledge on this fascinating, stretching and rewarding scheme.
Since joining I have learnt a huge amount about the wind industry and wind turbines, but also about working relationships with other companies and creating professional reports for clients.
