This is pioneer territory. You can help us to innovate and to create new applications for technology that will make life easier and better for our customers.

    We supply energy and services to over 25 million customer accounts mainly in the UK, Ireland and North America through strong brands such as British Gas, Direct Energy and Bord Gáis Energy all supported by around 15,000 engineers and technicians. We are focused on delivering high levels of customer service, engagementand loyalty. Technology is increasingly important in the delivery of energy and services to our customers. We are developing innovative products, offers and solutions, underpinned by investment in technology.
