British Gas/Scottish Gas are in partnership with several large employers and training partners to run a number of work experience programmes across the UK.
They are designed to deliver a wide range of positive outcomes helping young people gain new skills & experience, improve self-confidence and team working skills to help you get closer to the world of work.
The duration of the work experience can range between 2 – 5 weeks. During the 5 week placement, you will spend time with a training partner developing skills to prepare you for the work place and you will also spend 2 weeks work experience at British Gas/Scottish Gas, where you 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.
