Technology and Innovation underpins everything we do here at British Gas. Whether it's our active heating product, Hive, or within energy saving and efficiency or core Information Systems, Technology and Innovation is key to the ethos of British Gas, and, there are exciting opportunities within these areas.
These roles may be within our core IS functions which includes architecture, security, business solutions, service delivery and strategic planning. British Gas Information Systems (BGIS) is a key part not only of our business support functions but of British Gas as a whole. BGIS has a large team who are helping to shape the future of the company and revolutionise the way people use energy.
Our product led business Connected Homes (the team that devised Hive) or Digital and Social Media for example are also all particularly exciting places to work and are constantly changing and innovating to lead the way, and react to, the market. British Gas also leads the way and was the pioneer of smart meters in our homes. We've installed around two million in homes and all our customers will have them by 2020.
Recruiting and developing the best people is an important part of what makes Technology & Innovation a success (and a great place to work). We also have a range of opportunities for apprentices to join our Information Systems (IS) Apprenticeship Scheme as well as for experienced professionals who want to develop their career working for an industry leader.
These technologically driven parts of the business are based in geographically diverse locations such as Leeds, Greater London and Staines-upon-Thames.
