Placement Specific

Job Description

We need your brain power.

Can you shape the energy industry’s future? Find out on our 10-week scheme – with paid accommodation.

British Gas is the UK’s largest energy supplier. Our decisions matter.  From making major investments in green technology to securing future gas and electricity supply for British consumers and companies, everything we do has a major impact on the whole nation. That’s why we want the country’s most talented thinkers to work with us.

Our 10-week Summer Placement Scheme gives you a chance to experience the challenges and rewards of using high-calibre analysis to ensure the success of our business and your nation. For example, you will discover how some of the best analysts in the energy industry are developing models to make sure the lights stay on in Britain – no matter what happens around the world.

At the end of the scheme, you will have a deep understanding of this intellectually demanding and innovative area of the power industry, and the crucial role it plays in every aspect of British life. More importantly, you will know if you have the right mix of analytical thinking and commercial savvy to help transform the future of British Gas and the entire energy industry.

Perform well on the scheme and you could go back to university with an offer to join our graduate programme after you leave.  That’s on top of the paid accommodation you get for your 10-week summer placement.

To give you the widest possible experience of life with us, we will encourage you to get involved with our many community and charity activities. In the last three years, students like you have raised over fifty thousand pounds for good causes – learning vital work and life skills in the process. We hope a few friendships have also been made along the way.

Who are we looking for? We are open to ambitious students from numerical disciplines that combine strong analytical powers with a keen interest in business. Entrepreneurs welcome.

Salary: £14,000 pro rata 

Who we look for

The summer placement scheme is aimed at students expecting a 2:1 minimum degree in a numerate discipline, such as maths, physics, statistics, applied economics, chemistry, or engineering upon graduation. We will also consider recent graduates for our programme with the view to them starting the graduate programme the following year if successful.
