Joined: I was on the Analyst Summer Placement in 2018 and started the Graduate Scheme in October 2019.
Studied: I studied Mathematics at the University of Bristol with a year abroad in Bordeaux, France.
Current Placement: I am currently placed in Hive – Connected Home, working in the E-commerce and CRM team as a Digital Analyst.
Why I chose Centrica: I have always wanted to work in a constantly changing and evolving environment, so the energy sector, and Centrica in particular, was the perfect choice for me. Centrica is one of the top Graduate employers in the country and offers a comprehensive and supportive Analyst scheme. We have the opportunity to work in different business areas and learn exactly what job suits us. Having done the summer placement, I knew that Centrica was the right place for me to start my career.
What I enjoy most about my work: I love that my job varies day to day and I am constantly responding to important questions facing the business. I was given a lot of support from my manager and mentors, and training to be able to do the role to the best of my ability. I enjoy the amount of responsibility we have and feel that I can make a real impact on the business. The people I work with make my work most enjoyable and Centrica has a great social atmosphere.
Highlight of the grad scheme so far: I am only 2 months into my first placement but my highlight has been my project where I have made a series of data driven recommendations for a new and improved website. I am very excited to see these recommendations implemented and my work make a real impact.
