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.
Race to Zero
We're in the Race to Zero. We have already started making changes in the way we work, our partnerships, and investments in renewable energy - but there's more to be done. We're joining the Race to Zero because together, we can do this.
FutureGrid: exploring hydrogen as a fuel of the future
The FutureGrid Programme aims to demonstrate how we can re-purpose our existing National Gas Transmission System to enable it to transport hydrogen. This is one route that we are exploring to help achieve our commitment to reaching Net Zero by 2050.
With the need to consider how we deliver low carbon energy reliably and safely to all our customers, we’re looking for people with the right knowledge and experience in this area. We are recruiting in the North West of England and Nationally for these roles.
