Why I chose Centrica: I’ve been with Centrica for eight years, so my journey from engineer to graduate came somewhat naturally. From day one, I’ve been on a continuous learning path and Centrica has supported me throughout. While there are obviously lots of opportunities within a large organisation like Centrica, it is the range of roles that are available that is exciting, from managing a team of fifteen people to delivering a key transformation project!
What I enjoy most about my work: Getting the opportunity to shape the future of a business unit is exciting! I love seeing my ideas and hard work come to fruition, there's a real sense of satisfaction.
Highlight of the grad scheme so far: I’ve had the opportunity to join our business in Ireland. Applying the skills and knowledge I have gained in Centrica and developing them in an international context really sets the scheme apart from others.
Advice to applicants: Don’t assume everyone is thinking what you are thinking. Express your thoughts and ideas to your colleagues, you would be amazed what comes from it.
