9b. Why?

I would recommend National Grid to a friend because i have been very impressed since the start of the apprenticeship, it has helped me develop many new skills which will undoubtedly help me in the near future, and i think this sort of apprenticeship doesn't come around often.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to National Grid?

The tips i would give is that you should just sell yourself, the process is very well structured and they will give you quick responses to how you have done. But when doing the interview/phone interview just prove to them that you deserve the job and how you really want it.
