Centrica is a leading home services and energy supplier. We keep millions of homes and businesses running and work hard to support the changing needs of our customers. Join us, on our Commercial & Marketing Graduate Programme, and you can help tackle some of the most important challenges we are facing, now and in the future.

We value tailoring your development above everything, providing a series of four placements designed to help you gain a broad variety of skills working within areas such as Brand, Product Development, Marketing, Insight and Sales to name a few, where the customer and commercials are the heart of the placements.  

Join us on our journey to help our customers live simply, sustainably and affordably. With this programme there are a broad set of placements you can get involved in and we will support you and your career to find the best roles for your development.

Your placements

The programme kicks off with a three-month stint in one of our contact centres where you’ll experience life on the frontline in one of our core brands. You’ll be provided with a dedicated Team Leader to ensure you are well supported as you deal with all manner of customer needs. For the next three 8-month placements, you’ll contribute to high-profile projects across our business while working in various roles.

Your responsibilities could range all the way from gathering customer insight, to coming up with new product ideas; or developing material for TV and social media campaigns. And there’ll be plenty of opportunities for you to enhance your commercial awareness and develop your leadership and business management skills. It’s a fantastic chance to work with exciting Centrica brands like British Gas (which includes Hive and Local Heroes) and Centrica Business Solutions.

There is also plenty of support offered to Graduates joining our programme. You will have a buddy in the year above, a mentor from our Talent Board and a Graduate Talent Manager who’ll be on hand to support in your development during your time with us.

Being part of the Centrica Graduate community means there are so many opportunities you can get involved with outside of your role. You can take part in charity challenges; mentoring schemes and we also have 5 employee networks which you can join to meet new people and support our agenda of becoming the most inclusive company.
