Commercial Marketing Summer Placement

Our 10-week summer placement programme is designed to increase employability in students whilst providing a valuable resource to the business. We’re looking for self-directed learners and self-motivated individuals who show potential to grow, learn and develop on our programme. You should aim to demonstrate a can-do, proactive attitude and a genuine interest and desire to learn more about our business and industry.  In return, we offer projects with a high level of responsibility and the opportunity to enhance and develop the fundamental skills required for working life, with a support network that’s second to none. We want you to stand out in the workplace and helping you establish your strengths and fulfil your potential is what our Summer Placement is all about.  We also encourage you to get involved with community and charity activities. One of these is the Summer Placement Charity Challenge, which raises money for our chosen charities. In the last three years students have raised around £50,000 through various team initiatives – all while enhancing vital skills and networking across the business. If you perform well, you could leave us with an offer to join the Graduate Programme the following year.

We have locations across the UK – plus we arrange and pay for accommodation close to your place of work with other students based in the area.

Customers are at the heart of everything we do at British Gas – we’re guided by the principle of “doing what’s right”.

By listening to customers and researching customer needs, our commercial marketers lead the creation and delivery of great products and services. The team research insights, test ideas, produce commercial business cases and manage the ‘go to market’ plans for new and existing products. They then optimise communication channels to maximise our brand and drive sustainable profitable growth. We’re seeking Summer Placement students who have an interest in marketing and are keen to develop in a fast-paced commercial environment.

Deadline for applications: 1 February 2017 (subject to change, please apply early to avoid disappointment).
