The Centrica General management programme
NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more
Our general management programme is our pipeline for future senior managers. Join the programme and you will gain a thorough understanding of the operational aspects of our businesses, then concentrate on developing specialist expertise.
We believe that by giving our managers a comprehensive grounding in customer service, commercial and business issues, we enable them to make a much greater contribution either in general management careers or in our functional specialisms, such as marketing and human resources. Most of our general management placements are UK based but the scope to be placed overseas is growing. Three of our 2005 intake of general management graduates were offered international placements in 2006 in Direct Energy our North American service provider. These placements were based on the graduate having continued exceptional performance.
Our assessment process is designed to identify candidates who can demonstrate strengths in the following competencies:
Understanding of complex business and commercial issues
Ability to quickly gain new skills and knowledge
Adaptability in a changing environment
Planning and problem solving skills
Exceptional customer service
Experience of effective delegation, collaborative working and people management skills
2:2 degree is also required
