If you show a passion to learn and align to our values, the Summer Internship Programme offers a gateway to Centrica's Graduate Programme.

My favourite thing about the Business Management Internship at Centrica was the broadness of opportunities. In only 9 weeks I was able to undertake a variety of focused projects which deepened my understanding of business processes and helped me figure out what career path I want to follow. This, along with the high-level responsibility given from day one, made the summer placement truly enriching."
