Procurement Summer Placement Programme

THE OPPORTUNITY

Spend 10 weeks working on a real project with real responsibilities and give yourself a great head start in your career.

WHAT THE PROGRAMME INVOLVES

At Centrica, we secure and supply the energy that keeps millions of homes and businesses running. Our Procurement team is responsible for purchasing everything we need to operate successfully as a business. And when you consider we pay our suppliers over £3bn a year, that’s a very significant responsibility.

Join us, on our summer placement programme, and you will discover what it would be like to play a critical role in our organisation as part of our procurement team.

The programme includes understanding the importance of working with colleagues to confirm their needs, research and analysis of supply markets to gain insight into what drives our suppliers. Plus, you could gain experience of devising sourcing strategies that ensure maximum value for money. It will take a lot of hard work and initiative on your part. But in return you’ll get to develop career-boosting skills and could earn yourself a place on our graduate programme if you really stand out from the crowd.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED                                    

We look for proactive, can-do students who have a genuine desire to learn about our business and industry. You must be a penultimate- or final-year student expecting a 2:1 degree (2:2 if combined with a Master’s).

Due to the popularity of this programme it may be necessary to bring forward the deadline. We would encourage you to complete and submit your application at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment.
