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.
Are you trapped in the vicious circle of you can’t get a job because you don’t have experience, but you can’t get experience because you don’t have a job? We can help! Our work experience programmes are designed to deliver a wide range of positive outcomes helping people gain new skills & experience, improve self-confidence and team working skills to help people get closer to the world of work.
The duration of the work experience ranges between 2 – 4 weeks. During the 4 week placement, you will spend time with our training partner Capita, 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.
For the 2 week placement you will complete 2 weeks work experience with British Gas (BG) / Scottish Gas (SG) only and this will be across our customer services and engineering operations and will also include CV and Interview training with our fantastic Recruitment team.
