British Gas

At our award-winning training academies, Apprentice technical engineers are taught to service and repair central heating systems using the latest appliances and equipment.
Role description
As a British Gas Apprentice technical engineer you will attend one of our award-winning training academies, staffed by trainers who have worked in an engineer role themselves.

Working individually, and using the latest appliances and equipment in a realistic and spacious environment, you will study towards an NVQ Level 3 award.

You will have access to a company vehicle for travel to and from your training venue and accommodation will be provided if necessary. Training is on a block-release basis. The remainder of your time is spent working locally with a qualified Mentor engineer.

Once qualified, although part of a team, you will be field based – starting from home or a local parts collection point in the morning. You will be largely responsible for your own day. You therefore need to be self-reliant, selfmotivated and trustworthy so that you may be counted on to provide excellent customer service first time, every time.

Your main role will be to service and repair the central heating systems of our customers along with any other domestic appliances they may wish to have maintained. You will also be expected to provide our customers with the best advice and make them aware of all the products and services we offer. All Technical engineers are provided with the latest DVD laptop computers for cutting-edge fault recognition, instant parts ordering, job tracking and access to a vast reference library.

In order to fulfil our commitments to our customers, once qualified you will be required to participate in rosters, including evening and weekend work and 24-hour emergency stand-by duty.

Working in partnership with The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, all British Gas Apprentices will be encouraged to participate in an enjoyable, challenging and rewarding programme of personal development. Those completing the programme by their 25th birthday will receive the Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award.
