Programme information

Locations: UK-wide with potential European placements

Starting salary: £32,000 plus £3,000 starting bonus

What does it involve?

Over four years, you’ll build up your professional engineering experience in a series of placements that could be in areas such as Centrica Exploration and Production, Centrica Distributed Energy and Power or Centrica Storage. At the same time, we’ll support and guide you towards chartered status, appointing a Chartered Engineer as your technical mentor and providing you with structured development.

As one of our engineers, you’ll be part of a diverse, multi-disciplined team that is responsible for supplying millions of customers. So you’ll soon get used to working quickly and reliably under pressure, and there will be plenty of opportunities for you to build the knowledge and skills needed to help us meet the great challenges we are facing in the future.


We’re looking for passionate, creative engineers who can deliver solutions within tight timeframes, and implement them safely and successfully. Your work will often involve you travelling to remote locations, so a full UK driving licence is essential.

As part of the E&P projects team I have had hands-on experience and leadership in the design and project management of £multimillion equipment from concept to detailed design, fabrication, and have even spent time offshore on a jackup barge. This has been a fantastic experience on my journey to becoming a chartered engineer.
