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. Together we can make an impact that will truly change tomorrow. Whether you’re developing cutting-edge green tech, helping customers on the front line or simplifying operations behind the scenes.

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

Dare to make a difference? We're currently looking for talented individuals in Gloucestershire!

Bring your energy and ignite your career with award-winning training, powerful perks and an opportunity to make a true impact to not only our planet, but people too. Working here is #MoreThanACareer.

We’re British Gas. We’ve kept Britain’s homes warm for over 200 years but we’re only just heating up. Today, we stand on the cusp of a brighter, greener future. With two centuries of experience, we’re not just riding the energy wave – we’re driving it. As we aid our customers through challenging times, with a climate crisis knocking, we’re now suiting up for our biggest mission yet: Net Zero by 2050. Are you in?

Looking for your big break? No problem. Here's the drill.

We’re looking for people that have recently taken the plunge into and loving the world of gas engineering. Age? Gender? Background? Just numbers and stories that make you, you. We’re here for your drive, your passion, and that fire in your eyes.

Under the wing of our experienced engineers, you’ll soon learn how to deliver energy efficient solutions to our customers through servicing, maintaining, repairing, OR upgrading central heating systems.

Don’t be fooled, this isn’t your average gig; it’s a hands-dirty, skills-up, heads-down role.

  • You’ll get your own Iconic British Gas Blue Van with a Fuel Card, Mobile Phone & Tablet

  • 33 days holiday (plus the chance to buy more) (incl. of BH)

  • We give all employees a discount on their energy bills.

  • Huge discounts for friends and family on products such as EV Chargers, Solar Panels, and boilers.

  • Funded Legal Help

  • You’ll also get to choose from whole host of additional benefits to suit your own lifestyle through our benefits+ platform which includes extras like technology discounts, gym passes, dining out cards and an electric car scheme.

We believe that a better you, paves the way for a better tomorrow.


We’re a people place. That means we support all the different realities our people face. School run? No problem. We're looking for people to add to our culture - not fit in with it. We serve over 10 million customers each year. We know that to be better for them, we need a workforce that reflects the perspectives of the communities they reside in. Our Diversity is the fuel to our flame — it's what sparks our innovation, fosters resilience, and makes us a genuinely great place to work.

Here, knowledge really is power. We’ve launched a brand-new career development platform which means we have an industry-leading learning offering that you won’t find at any other Energy company. When it comes to our engineers, we’ve made a commitment to cross-skilling into trending green technologies such as Air Source Heat Pumps, Electric Vehicle Charge Points, Mixergy Hot Water Tank Systems, Hydrogen Boilers and HIVE applications.
