Customer Insight Summer Placement Scheme 2017


Placement Specific

Job Description

We need your brain power.

Keeping the customer at the heart of decision making.  Find out how on our 10-week scheme – with paid accommodation.

Customer Insight covers every business unit of British Gas, delivering actionable insights that keep our customers at the heart of all our commercial decisions.

Covering 28 million customer accounts, we combine advanced analytics and modelling with a variety of market research techniques to develop a deep understanding of our customers: who they are, how they behave, what they like to buy and what they think about us.  We get to know them so that we can fully understand their needs and behaviours in order to influence the decisions we make as a company. This ensures we appeal to the right customers at the right time and in the most efficient way. Through this the Insight team has the opportunity to get involved with, and influence every decision the business makes.

Our 10-week Summer Placement Scheme gives you a chance to gain an understanding of the customer markets in which we operate, how we analyse our customers and their behaviour, what our customers say they need from us as well as how we build successful campaigns.  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’re looking for ambitious, inquisitive students with a passion for using information to drive better decisions.

Salary: £14,000 pro rata

Who we look for

The summer placement scheme is aimed at students expecting a 2:1 minimum degree upon graduation.  We will also consider recent graduates for our programme if they have the ambition to start our graduate programme the following year.

Application Deadline

The advertised closing date for this position is 28th February 2017, however we would encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible as should all vacancies be filled before this date, the position may close earlier than expected.
