Company Details


The scope of our business means we can offer you exciting opportunities across a wide range of career paths throughout the UK and internationally. We’re one of the top 30 companies in the FTSE 100, with an annual operating profit of £1.7 billion and 37,500 employees worldwide. We're also a diverse business, with powerful UK consumer brands such as British Gas. Our Services business is the US market leader, with revenues predicted to total $80 billion per annum.

We have a 200 year history which began with the Gas Light and Coke Company in 1812, but we’re not resting on our laurels. We want to make our customer experience even better, protect the environment (spending £880 million as part of our ECO scheme since 2013) and create positive connections. Our main focus for long-term growth is on the following: Energy Supply, Services, Distributed Energy and Power, the Connected Home, and Energy Marketing and Trading.

In brief, this includes developing new products to meet our customers’ evolving requirements. Investing £500 million in the Internet of Things; innovating and building products which let our customers see their energy use in real time, and creating the award-winning Hive app, so they can control their heating and hot water from a smart phone, tablet or laptop. It’s an exciting time to be a part of Centrica and we’re looking for ambitious people to join our graduate programmes.

What are we like to work for? Our success depends on providing an environment in which employees can flourish. We have an open, honest culture that’s based on mutual trust and respect, with a strong team ethic and sense of community. We value individuality and are committed to creating a truly inclusive workplace where everyone can fulfil their potential. In addition, we build innovative programmes that provide graduates and undergraduates with the chance to gain experience, be supported and discover new opportunities. In fact, we won the ‘Overall Graduate Development’ and ‘Graduate Induction’ awards at the Association of Graduate Recruiters 2015 Awards, and feature in the Times Top 100 Graduate Employers and the Guardian UK 300.

Centrica offers a wide range of graduate programmes and summer placements across the business. Join us and you could be part of the dynamic Customer Insight team providing analytics that keep our customers at the heart of all our commercial decisions. Play a frontline role improving processes, managing projects or leading teams on the Customer Operations programme. Work alongside our diverse, multi-disciplined Engineering team, who are responsible for supplying millions of customers, or develop innovative solutions thinking on your feet with the Information Systems programme. Make our employees and customers’ lives safer and reduce environmental impact with the Health, Safety, Environment & Security team. We offer the opportunity to work across Centrica in a wide variety of roles – from Finance to Marketing, Supply Chain to Human Resources, and more.

We’d like to hear from highly motivated graduates who are inquisitive, passionate and curious about what they do. In return, our schemes and placements will give you the chance to work with different people across the business, be supported by a mentor and gain invaluable practical skills. Interested? We’d love to help you develop your career, and to have you be a part of our ongoing and future success.
