The job that can’t wait

Energy is vital to every aspect of our lives. We use it to light and heat our homes, to power our computers and phones, to keep us connected with work and loved ones. We rely on it to keep us safe, to keep our hospitals running, our schools open and our water flowing. But as we look to the future, we must make the shift towards cleaner, renewable energy to both power and preserve our world. 

As a nation, we’re working towards the goal of net zero carbon by 2050. At National Grid, we’re committed to helping Britain reach this target by building a cleaner, greener energy system. But we can’t do this alone. We need people who are brimming with enthusiasm and bursting with ideas to help us take on the job that can’t wait. Are you up for the challenge?

    An update from our CEO

    Our priority this year has been ensuring we keep the lights on and the gas flowing while also looking after the wellbeing and safety of our people, and supporting our local communities and customers. For the first time since the industrial revolution, we've seen more energy produced from zero-carbon sources than fossil fuel. Hear from our CEO, John Pettigrew on the year that's gone.

    Pride Month 2020

    Being able to bring your whole self to work is important, whether you're working from home or on-site. While we couldn't celebrate Pride Month in our usual way this year, we continued to celebrate virtually with colleagues in both the US and UK. We also redesigned our Pride Flag to incorporate elements of the Progress Flag, in recognition of the contributions made by Black, Brown, and African American LGBTQ+ trailblazers.
