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 our 12 million customers. Here's your chance to train as a Smart 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 Learning Centres to give you the technical skills and knowledge you'll need. We'll also support you to successfully complete the Dual Fuel Smart Meter Installer Trailblazer Apprenticeship.

You'll then be ready to go to our 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, or equivalent at Grade C or above, preferably including Maths and English. More importantly we want you to have exceptional customer service skills. Some flexibility about working evenings and weekends is required. A full UK driving license (no more than 9 points) is also required, however if you have your test booked let us know.

Your salary will start at £12,000, rising to £15,000 after 19 weeks and £18,000 after 27 weeks. Once fully fledged your salary will rise to £24,961. On average our Smart Engineers earn a further £4,000 each year through bonuses and overtime and for those who stay with the Smart Programme to the end will earn a £3,500 loyalty bonus.

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 you. As part of a company with over 10,000 field workers covering multiple technical and engineering disciplines, our guarantee to you is a permanent career beyond the Smart Metering roll out within our Field Operations network.

The wellbeing of our engineers is paramount and to ensure they are not travelling unsafe distances, we try to keep everyone working close to home. To help us keep you safe, please ensure you fill in your full home postcode on your application so we can see if there is a position in your area.
