Centrica, through British Gas/Scottish Gas run a number of work experience programmes across the UK during 2018. We're offering two free, action-packed weeks of skills training, in partnership with Movement to Work, to build self-confidence and help prepare people for work.

The duration of the work experience is 2 weeks and during the work experience at British Gas/Scottish Gas, attendees will gain an awareness of our products & services and have an opportunity to spend some time with a customer services team, plus shadow engineers installing and servicing heating products and energy systems.

Although unpaid, the programme is designed to deliver a wide range of positive outcomes helping them gain new skills & experience & improve self-confidence. We will give attendees the experience they need so they can get the job they deserve.

During the taster day they will meet some of our team, find out more about the programme and along the way we have the  opportunity to find out more about you. At the taster day, we will select a number of people to join the 2- week programme.
