Our British Gas Analyst Graduate Programme is a great way to get to know us inside out.

As a graduate analyst, your work will be fundamental to ensuring that our commercial strategy is right, that we deliver improvements in critical areas, such as pricing, and that we’re profitable. You’ll be supported by industry-leading analytics and insight tools, and work together with dynamic colleagues to identify the biggest opportunities or risks that we might face.

Your role will be to provide first-class, clear and compelling analysis across several aspects of our business, such as long-term forecasting of energy requirements, or managing and mitigating risk for British Gas and our customers. But you won’t be limited to hedging and pricing work – just as vital is analysing customer behaviour and the activities of our competitors. Along with developing your analytical skills, you’ll build your commercial acumen and your ability to form sound working relationships.

This is a complex and varied area of our business and the degree of change planned for the future means that it will only grow. Graduate analysts within British Gas have covered a lot of ground, tackling everything from improving our understanding of market behaviours and economics to assessing the commercial implications of government legislation relating to carbon reduction. Add in the opportunity to assess major risk, analyse customer behaviours and conduct competitor reviews, and you’ll see that this is an opportunity to influence the heart of our business.

Join us and you’ll benefit from analyst-specific development opportunities that are built on a carefully devised Core Development Programme. A personal coach and a senior mentor will support and stretch you in equal measure. Plus, we’ll supply all of the sophisticated analysis tools you need to progress – including SAS (database), Emblem (linear modelling) and @Risk (stochastic modelling) – but it will be up to you to make the most of them.

The sheer variety of placements on offer is testament to the kind of work we do, so bring along your passion for analysis – be it finance, commercial, consumer insight or more – and you’ll have every opportunity to reach your full potential.

Deadline for applications: 4 January 2017 (subject to change, please apply early to avoid disappointment).
