Why I chose Centrica: The placements on the EM&T programme offered the opportunity to work on a variety of challenging roles associated with the energy markets, a field I am particularly passionate about. Doing so would enable me to understand the dynamic trends driving the energy sector and the key commercial decisions being taken to exploit such trends.

Highlight of the graduate scheme so far: Meeting interesting people within the company.
Advice to applicants: Clearly convey why you’re interested in Centrica, EM&T and the programme specifically. Ensure you understand what EM&T does and how it relates to the wider business. Follow recent news releases and try to figure out their impact on the commodity markets in order to build a high-level appreciation of the factors affecting market movements.
