make the connection

In the UK, National Grid doesn’t generate or sell power. We join the dots. Our high-voltage electricity and high-pressure gas transmission systems connect homes and businesses to the energy they use. Our job is to make sure demand is matched by supply. And thanks to impressive expertise and genuine dedication, joining us, you’ll make sure we deliver every time.

And, we're determined to cement our reputation as a responsible, sustainable business and an industry leader. So we look for talent and innovation, and we expect high performance from enthusiastic people. People like you.
