  • 2 Will National Grid support my formal academic and professional development?

    Yes, we have an education incentives policy that outlines how you can apply for funding/study leave to pursue further academic qualifications. We also take personal development very seriously. From day one you’ll be encouraged to create a development plan. We also encourage professional registration and our procurement teams are supported with CIPS, finance with CIMA and our Engineers are encouraged to work towards professional registration. Furthermore we are accredited with IET, IMechE and IGEM.

  • 3 Can I make more than one application?

    No, we’d really like you to try to make a selection from the roles that we have to offer; we’ve tried hard to ensure that you have enough information within this site to make an informed decision as to what might be right for you. 


    However, once you’ve applied, if we feel that your qualifications match another role we may contact you about it to see if it’s of interest to you.

  • 4 I’m not an EU national will you help me obtain permission to work in the UK?

    National Grid is a registered sponsor under Tier 2 of the Points Based System (PBS). We are only able to consider offering sponsorship of applications that meet the Home Office’s requirements under Tier 2 (General) of the PBS. 

    All candidates are encouraged to apply for our available roles; we consider applications in accordance with our recruitment process irrespective of nationality. 

    At an appropriate stage however, and after an assessment based on skills and experience, we will consider an applicant’s immigration status together with any working restrictions which may apply where relevant in the context of the role for which they have applied. 
     

  • 5 If I’m unsuccessful in my application will I receive feedback

    Unfortunately, due to the amount of applications we receive, we are unable to provide feedback to all candidates. However those attending an assessment centre will have the opportunity to obtain feedback based on their performance.
