2017 Analyst - EM&T
Analyst - Energy Marketing & Trading
Influence key commercial decisions and become an expert at turning data into useful information
Energy Marketing & Trading is our window onto the global wholesale commodity market. The teams here execute procurement and risk management strategies for British Gas and hedging strategies for Centrica’s Power and Gas production businesses in the UK and Europe. They also develop and execute their own trading strategies in response to market opportunities.
It is an entrepreneurial, innovative and fast-paced environment to work in, and the business has ambitious plans to diversify and grow. For example, we recently signed our first US LNG export contract, giving us the option to send cargoes all over the world.
As a graduate, you will be helping to provide the quality analytics on which the business depends. Working across a wide range of teams and functions, which could include trading and optimisation, LNG, origination, finance or risk, you’ll support commercial decision-making and risk management, relating either to the origination and structuring of commodity contracts with clients or to the development and execution of trading strategies.

What I especially like about Centrica is how serious the company is about the role it plays in society. I love how I need to approach my tasks from so many different angles, be it commercial, legal or technical.
