Studied: Economics at Warwick University
Current Placement: Gas and LNG reporting (Windsor)
Why I chose Centrica: During university, I wanted to go into Finance but wasn’t sure which type of role I was best suited to, so the ability to rotate between 3 different areas of before choosing where to specialize drew me to the Centrica scheme. Furthermore, they support you in achieving either the ACCA, ACA or CIMA qualification, again giving you flexibility over where you would like your career in finance to go.
What you enjoy most about your work: The level of responsibility given! On top of the monthly reporting and analysis of our Gas and LNG trades, I’ve had the opportunity to get involved with many ad-hoc projects and team tasks. For instance, managing relationships with the offshore teams to drive process improvements and being a key contact for auditor’s questions.
Highlight of the grad scheme so far: Grad ball- and the other grads in general!
Advice to applicants: Be yourself in the interviews and honest about what you would like in your career! Finance tends to have a mixture of personalities and because the graduate scheme is rotational you don’t need to know yet exactly which area of finance you want to work in!
