Spend 10 weeks working on a real project with real responsibilities and give yourself a great head start in your career.
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
Centrica has a clear vision to be a leader in the decarbonised, decentralised energy system. The transition from fossil fuels to low carbon and renewable energy sources is one of the most pressing and complex challenges facing mankind, and Engineers are central to its success.
At Centrica, we need committed, enthusiastic Engineers to help us in our journey. Our award winning summer placement programme will give you the opportunity to work in a real life environment on meaningful projects, and it will give us a chance to see the real you.
You will be involved in advanced electrical systems, including solar/inverter systems, power electronics and energy storage systems across a variety of technologies. Our solutions are highly integrated so you will need to be familiar with Industry 4.0 and the digital agenda, as well as being highly numerate. Proficiency in Excel, Matlab and PowerBI will be an advantage, and some experience of coding will be a real benefit. You will be working from day one as part of a team and we have high expectations of our summer placements.
So, there will be plenty to get your teeth into and it will take a lot of hard work and initiative on your part. In return you’ll get to develop career-boosting skills and could earn yourself a place on our graduate programme if you really stand out from the crowd.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
We’re looking for penultimate-year MEng students or final-year BEng students who are planning on completing an MEng. You must be:
* Expecting a 2:1 degree in a suitable electrical or control and instrumentation engineering discipline, accredited by the relevant professional institute
* A passionate and creative engineer who can deliver solutions within tight timeframes and implement them safely and successfully
* In possession of a full UK driving licence, as you may be required to travel to remote locations
* Right to work in the UK
* Free to start your internship on Tuesday 23rd June 2020
