Placement Specific

Job Description

Summer was made for more than wearing flip-flops and throwing beach balls. Spend yours with Centrica and get ahead of the game; fast-track your personal development and fulfil your potential through this challenging opportunity.
Our 10 week programme is designed to increase employability in students whilst providing a valuable resource to the business. We are looking for self-directed learners and self-motivated individuals, who show potential to grow, learn and develop on our Summer Placement Programme. You should aim to demonstrate a can-do, proactive attitude and a genuine interest and desire to learn more about our business and industry.
In return, addressing your development needs and working closely with the business, we produce projects with a high level of responsibility and the opportunity to enhance and develop the fundamental skills required for working life, with a support network that’s second to none. We want you to stand out in the workplace and helping you to establish your strengths and fulfil your potential, is what our Summer Placement is all about.

 As an engineering summer placement you will be placed within one of our engineering businesses. Within Centrica Exploration and Production you will be part of a team that is making exciting strides: students working within Centrica Storage will gain unique insights into a high-profile and strategically important gas storage environment. Whilst students joining Distributed Energy & Power will gain exposure to large gas-fired power stations and new distributed generation systems. All placements will offer you the opportunity to achieve your full potential.
We have locations across the UK – plus we arrange and pay for accommodation close to your place of work with the other students based in that area.
