Substation & Commissioning Engineer

What we do

Installing, commissioning, repairing and maintaining all our electrical and mechanical equipment requires a distinct approach and eagerness. A thorough understanding and application of the safety procedures necessary is essential.

The vast range of plant and equipment installed to form the England and Wales high voltage transmission network require constant monitoring and we are the people who make it happen.

Joining our team, you'll enjoy a range of activities and responsibilities – some of which will no doubt be new. But we will provide a comprehensive and personally focused training and development programme to ensure you get the most from your experience.

Why it matters

Looking after the transmission network is what keeps the country's lights on. Ensuring that our equipment is the most technologically advanced means that our customers can have confidence in our abilities. We will meet the demands of factories, hospital and homes across the country and beyond without fail.

Why energy

Energy doesn't stop. Homes, businesses, transport and industry across the UK require it to function. Our engineers are constantly adapting the operation of the power network to ensure energy flows securely and efficiently to where it's needed.

What we've achieved

What we've achieved

We're adding increasing amounts of green energy sources to help protect our environment. And we're installing DC connections between Scotland and England to exploit this energy; making connections with European countries and their power grids via undersea cables even easier.

Where we're going

Where we're going

Our upcoming major projects include the world's longest subsea cable to Norway and connecting the new nuclear power station at Hinckley Point. This will help secure the energy needs of the UK in the future.

what we're looking for

and our assessment process

When selecting our candidates we look for a minimum HNC or equivalent in electrical engineering, with ideally a NEBOSH or IOSH general certificate. We'll also carefully consider the relevant experience the individual has in relation to the specific role and how much training will be required on various processes and equipment.

A working knowledge of the operation and maintenance of HV electricity substations and/or associated HV cable systems is vital. As is an understanding of IS based asset and work management systems utilised for the planning, execution and recording of work. Plus qualifications that will ideally lead you into becoming a member of the IET or an appropriate senior institute and an ability to stick to a project plan and budget throughout.
