Job Description

We are Centrica! We’re so much more than an energy company. We’re a family of brands revolutionising a cleaner, greener future. Working here is #MoreThanACareer - we’re powered by purpose.

Your work here isn’t just a job – it’s a mission. We all play a vital role in energising a greener, fairer future.

We’ve been keeping Britain warm for over 200 years. Today we power 1 in 3 homes in the UK – but supplying energy is just part of what we do.

And with our new PeakSave programme, we’re actively rewarding better energy use too.

Our nationwide team of 6,500 engineers are energy efficiency experts – offering practical ways to make homes more sustainable.

To help us achieve this, we’re looking for an Assistant Compliance Analyst for a 12-month Fixed Term Contract.
