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.

  • Right to work in the UK
  • 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
  • In possession of a full UK driving licence, as you may be required to travel to remote locations

What you'll be doing

Programme participants will be involved in researching, developing, designing, testing and manufacturing advanced electrical systems; including rotating machines, power electronics and energy storage systems across a variety of technologies. Our solutions are highly integrated so you will need to be familiar with Industry 4.0 and the digital agenda. You will be working from day one as part of a team and we have high expectations of our Graduates.  So, there will be plenty to get your teeth into and it will take a lot of hard work and initiative on your part.
