How to Apply

Our application process is fast and efficient. You could be just a few short steps from an exciting new challenge.

Application stages: Four steps to your future

1. Complete the online application

Remember that we are assessing you against our leadership behaviours and so make sure that you use your best examples of where you have demonstrated these to form your answers.

2. Participate in a telephone interview

If your application is successful, we'll schedule a telephone interview in which you'll be asked various questions to ensure your suitability for the scheme and you will be asked for some more examples of when you have been able to demonstrate our leadership behaviours and measures of potential.

3. Attend our assessment centre

Candidates who pass the online application and telephone interview will be asked to attend our assessment centre.

Our assessment centres are held at different times depending on which programme you apply for (and therefore there may be a wait of several weeks until the next scheduled assessment centre takes place for your stream) and take place at our head office at Windsor or at one of our offices across the UK. Assessments can include an interview, a group activity and a presentation. If you're asked to attend, please bring copies of your qualifications and ID.

4. Find out if you have a place

We’ll let you know how the assessment went within three working days. If we offer you a place, we’ll let you know the exciting plans we have and will keep in touch with you until you start the programme.

Use of your personal information

The business to which you apply will be one of the companies in the Centrica Group. Centrica plc, its group companies (including, British Gas and Dyno-Group) and its agents will use the information collected in the application form and during the recruitment process, including sensitive information (such as information relating to ethnic group, health or criminal offences), for the purpose of processing and assessing your application for employment.

If your application is successful, we will use your information for the purposes of your employment. This is described more fully in Centrica's standard terms of employment. If your application is unsuccessful we will keep your information on file for a period of approximately 12 months.

Our graduate programmes are now open for applications.
