Any business relies on people who can calculate sound financial advice – and the energy sector is no exception. Our finance function carries responsibilities across the full breadth of our business activity as a FTSE 50 Company.

We set ourselves ambitious quality targets, which is why we’re looking for passionate self-starters with real integrity; people who can provide the right level of challenge and communicate their ideas. Responsibility comes fast so your analytical mind will need to be complemented by outstanding people skills to build effective networks, while having the flexibility to adapt and continually perform in a fast-paced environment.

Our three-year Finance Programme will give you comprehensive exposure to our finance function and operations across the Centrica family of businesses. The programme comprises three 12-month placements. These are designed to encompass the range of financial disciplines, as well as business areas, within which we operate. During these three years you’ll be expected to complete an accounting qualification (the choice of ACA, ACCA or CIMA is yours, and we’ll fund your courses and give you time off to study). Opportunities for third-year placements extend into specialist areas, including Investor Relations and M&A. If you meet the challenge, you should emerge from the three-year programme fully qualified, both by examination and experience, with the foundation to build yourself a strong future career in finance.

Throughout the programme, you can expect to be challenged but supported, both through your studies and your placements. What’s more, the Finance Graduate Programme is supported across the Finance function, including at Finance Director Level.

Deadline for applications: 30 November 2016 (subject to change, please apply early to avoid disappointment).
