National Grid's job is to connect people to the energy they use. Society relies on having energy at its finger tips: it is built on it and National Grid owns and manages the grids to which many different energy sources are connected. In Britain we run systems that deliver gas and electricity across the entire country. In the North Eastern states of the US, we provide power directly to millions of customers. Holding a vital position at the centre of the energy system, National Grid join everything up.
That puts National Grid at the heart of one of the greatest challenges facing society; the creation of new sustainable energy solutions for the future - and the development of an energy system that can underpin economic prosperity in the 21st century.
Our placements are an ideal way to develop 'hands-on' experience in a large organisation. Even better, they provide a head-start for your career, both by letting you get a feel for different types of work, and by putting you in a strong position for future opportunities with National Grid.
