Centrica: Grads on the sofa

A graduate’s view of what life is like on the Centrica Grad Scheme, as told by the graduates themselves.

What the programme involves

At Centrica, we secure and supply the energy and services that keeps millions of homes and businesses running. Join us, as a part of our diverse, multi-disciplined engineering team, and you can develop some of the skills, knowledge and experience that will be essential to our future success.

You can look forward to a mix of on-the-job learning, training modules and project work, and as you develop, you’ll find the challenges will increase in complexity and responsibility.

Our engineering programme is being accredited by the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET), so you know you’ll be on the right track to become registered as a Chartered Engineer should you choose to; this typically takes 4-5 years, and we will help you all the way.

  • Willingness to relocate multiple times and try new things
  • A passionate and creative Engineer who can deliver solutions within tight timeframes and implement them safely and successfully whilst demonstrating our values.
