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.
The Analyst – British Gas Summer Placement is a complex and varied area of our business and the degree of change planned for the future means that it will only grow. Analysts within British Gas have covered a lot of ground, tackling everything from improving our understanding of market behaviours and economics to assessing the commercial implications of government legislation relating to carbon reduction. Add in the opportunity to assess major risk, analyse customer behaviours and conduct competitor reviews, and you’ll see that this is an opportunity to influence the heart of our business.
The sheer variety of placements on offer is testament to the kind of work we do, so bring along your passion for analysis – be it finance, commercial, consumer insight or more – and you’ll have every opportunity to reach your full potential.
