Connecting the network

The Global IT department creates and maintains all IT related systems and infrastructure that enables National Grid to function as a business globally. The department spends $0.25bn every year on these systems. Your role could be helping to develop those systems, build and implement them as part of a project, or help support and secure them once they are live.  

What we do

To Bring Energy to Life, Global IT’s role is to be a trusted and innovative partner that delivers safe, efficient, reliable and future proofed technology. We ensure National Grid can function as a business – every computer system or piece of equipment that every employee uses, be that energy management systems, payment systems or personal spreadsheets is maintained and protected by IT.

What’s in it for you?

The energy industry is changing rapidly, almost as fast as the technology industry. Global IT needs to respond to the challenge to develop more efficient systems, deliver projects quicker and find more innovative ways for our employees to work. 

With the customer always in mind, our role is to help deliver the systems of the future – it’s a dynamic and challenging environment. As the IT department is part of the wider shared functions of National Grid, we are a customer focused and supportive department.  All our roles touch the wider National Grid businesses and this viewpoint makes us an exciting, challenging and thriving community to work in.
