Studied English Language and Linguistics at the University of Sheffield.
Area of Centrica:
Administrator in the graduate team (Windsor, corporate centre)
Career aspirations and future goals:
I have since joined Centrica’s analyst graduate programme. My first placement is in the CE Power Team as a business development analyst. During the graduate programme I would like to experience a wide breadth of roles in both upstream and downstream.
General overview of the placement so far:
During my year in the graduate team I worked mainly in the recruitment area of the graduate team including working closely with the attraction manager to manage our on campus activities and the selection manager to organise our assessment events. On top of this, I also spent time with the graduate development team which allowed me to get a good understanding of all of the different graduate programmes and helped me come to the decision of which programme was right for me.
Despite moving into a completely different type of role, the skills that I developed during the year have already proved highly useful in my first analyst placement.
