What you can expect from us

In return for your hard work and initiative, we will give you the support to make the most of the experience. You'll be:

  • Supported by a graduate talent manager assigned to your business area and responsible for overseeing your performance and development
  • Paired with a 'buddy' from our previous graduate or summer placement intake to help you settle in and answer any questions
  • Assigned a line manager with experience of the area of business in which you are placed
  • Further supported by the Central Graduate team, who are always on hand to help you get the best from the placement

Beyond this support, we will provide you with accommodation close to your placement. With other students also based in the area, you'll have a ready-made network wherever you end up.

Accommodation costs

We will pay for you to move to your placement location and you are paid a salary and provided with free accommodation for the duration of the placement. Commuting costs and transport arrangements are your own responsibility. We will be happy for you to source your own accommodation if you choose to but please note that no extra financial assistance will be provided. Please let the graduate team know as soon as possible if you do not require the accommodation provided by Centrica.
