What does it take to be of the UK's largest energy distribution companies?

Year 1:

The programme begins with an eight-week induction during which time you will gain an in depth insight into our business and will also receive training in additional areas such as finance, accounting and successful negotiation.

You will also attend some engineering specific courses to introduce you to the technical aspects of our industry.

In your second year, you’ll then progress into your first supported role in the business which will see you based at your original home base location. During this time you will continue to be part of the graduate programme and will receive all of the mentoring and support you need to ensure you succeed.

What’s more, we’ll provide you with a Chartered Surveyor mentor, as well as funding and enabling your membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (the RICS).

At the end of the two years, you will then have the choice to continue working in your home base location and business area or at another location. Our graduate career progression policy will ensure that you continue to be supported in your professional development.

Over the course of the programme, you’ll be reviewed on a quarterly basis to monitor your progress and development. You will also have access to exciting opportunities such as attending external industry conferences and site visits.
