Creative Content Industrial Placement 2023

A career that will deliver change. Together, we’ll help Britain achieve Net Zero.  


Join our Creative Content Industrial Placement programme and you can make an immediate impact, powering the nation today, whilst helping to build a sustainable energy future for tomorrow.

“This fantastic placement has given me great experience with creative content that I wouldn’t have been able to get on my degree. I’m learning how to edit professional videos for internal and external use alongside creating graphics for social media. I’ve also worked on web design, search engine optimisation and developed the key skills required for a digital marketer.”    

James Simmonds, Communications Placement

  • Experience working in a fast-paced environment for an in-house creative team working on video production, graphic design, web and social media
