At British Gas, we do the right thing for our customers - and helping them to manage their energy consumption and save money is at the top of our agenda. That's why we're leading the roll-out of Smart Metering to 12 million customers by 2020. Here's your chance to train as a Smart Metering Energy Expert and come on an exciting new journey with us, helping people today and securing energy for tomorrow. We're a team at British Gas that believes in being extraordinary together. Our trainees come from diverse backgrounds, yet everyone keeps things simple for our customers, takes pride in what they do and continually strives to improve their performance - individually and as a team. Smart Metering is probably new to you, so we'll provide you with outstanding training at one of our award-winning academies to give you the technical skills and knowledge you'll need. We'll also support you to successfully complete the new Dual Fuel Smart Meter Installer Trailblazer Apprenticeship. You'll then be ready to go out to customers' homes in your own fully equipped van, with the latest tablet and mobile phone at your fingertips. We'll trust you to be the face of British Gas - using your practical skills to install meters, diagnose faults and make repairs, while informing customers about energy usage and how Smart Metering will make their lives easier. We're looking for four GCSE's, Scottish Standard Grade or equivalent at Grade C or above including Maths and English plus exceptional customer service skills. Some flexibility about working evenings or weekends is required. A full manual UK driving licence (no more than 6 points) is also required. Your salary will start at £12,000, rising to £15,000 after 19 weeks and £18,000 after 25 weeks (plus London Weighting if relevant). Once you've completed your Traineeship and reached all your targets, your salary will increase to £24,334. Excellent benefits include pension, share save scheme and company discounts. British Gas is a leading energy company and part of Centrica, a top 30 FTSE 100 company, so there will also be plenty of opportunities for career progression. Once you have submitted your application you should hear from a member of our team within 5 working days. If you have not heard within this time or you have any queries please contact us.
