British Gas provides potential graduate job boost

Published: Tuesday, 02 March 2010   Category: Science, Engineering and IT

Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in science, engineering and IT may be interested to hear that British Gas has announced the creation of 80 full time jobs at a new insulation depot in Reading set to open this month.

The depot will be one of 12 new sites opening over the next 14 months charged with helping its customers across the UK become energy efficient.

Candidates with engineering qualifications will be well placed to take one of the positions for the roles that cover the Berkshire, Surrey and Oxfordshire areas, which will involve the installation of cavity wall and loft insulation in homes and businesses.

Wayne Smith, head of insulation at British Gas, said: "In today's economic climate, I'm delighted to talk about the creation of 80 new jobs in Reading.

"There is much talk about utilising green technologies and cutting our energy usage, but we can only do this if we have enough people with the right skills. Insulation is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to cut carbon emissions."

The government's feed-in-tariff scheme that rewards homes and businesses with financial incentives for adopting green technology on their premises launches next month.
