School leaver opportunities

The process starts with you registering your interest to attend one of our taster days During the taster day you will meet some of our team, find out more about the programme and along the way we have the opportunity to find out more about you. At the taster day, we will select a number of people to join the 2- week programme.

During the work experience at British Gas/Scottish Gas, you will gain an awareness of our products & services and have an opportunity to spend some time with a customer services team, plus shadow engineers installing and servicing heating products and energy systems. You will leave armed with work experience stories to use for future employment opportunities, either with us or elsewhere.
