Hollie Heffernan - my journey to the Centrica grad programme
I joined Centrica on the Summer Placement programme in 2012. I spent 10 weeks working with British Gas in digital. After graduating from my law degree, I returned to Centrica in the summer of 2013 as a marketing summer intern working within the British Gas Loyalty team. After an amazing summer, I was delighted to be offered a place on the Marketing Graduate Programme.
I joined the Graduate Programme this September. Having only spent three weeks in Leeds, I am already managing a team within the contact centre. I will be moving into a marketing specific role in December; I’m really excited to be relocating again and joining a new team within the marketing department.
I chose Centrica because I wanted to be part of a challenging company that I knew would allow me the opportunity to develop and progress. The energy industry is exciting as it’s constantly changing and provides for a great career.
In doing my research the Graduate Programmes with Centrica seemed very well structured and tailored towards individual needs. Throughout my summer placements and graduate programme there has been a solid support network for me. I have been given real responsibility and encouraged to continuously progress as an individual starting out in my career.
Centrica certainly encourage everyone to have a good work life balance. Outside of the office, I love to socialise, eat out, cook and I love music! I have met some great friends at Centrica over the past couple of years and continue to do so!
