Movement to Work

We'll give you the experience you need, so you can get the job you deserve

We work in partnership with several large employers to run several work experience programmes across the UK. 

We offer two free, action-packed weeks of skills training, in partnership with Movement to Work, to build self-confidence and help prepare young people for work.  

Our placements are based at both British Gas and Scottish Gas. During the training, you’ll gain an awareness of our products and services, have the opportunity to spend time with a customer services team, as well as shadowing engineers installing and servicing heating products and energy systems. Everyone who takes part in the scheme will leave with a wide range of experiences which can be used for future employment opportunities, either with Centrica or elsewhere.

Requirements

No formal qualifications are required. The age range for the work experience programme is 16-30. For all programmes, you must not be in employment, education or training, with no unspent criminal convictions.  

To secure your seat on the scheme, you first need to register for a taster day. Here you’ll meet some of our team, find out more about the programme and we’ll get to learn more about you. At the taster day, a number of people will then be selected to join the two-week programme.
