About National Grid

Connecting, together

In every moment, energy is rolling over hills, winding through valleys, travelling across the country, and finding its way to our fingertips, on demand – and it’s up to us to keep people connected.

Through our energy transmission network, we connect millions safely and reliably to the energy they need. It’s this purpose that drives us forward. Join us and, together, we’ll work to build a more sustainable, better-connected future.

To shape the future of energy

A National Grid Apprenticeship isn’t just about getting a job – it’s an opportunity to join a new generation of talent, charged with the destiny of shaping the future of energy. We’ll help you develop your skills through a combination of practical work and academic study, all the while providing you with the passion, skills and knowledge you need to power all our futures.

Which Apprenticeship is right for you?

Whichever one of National Grid's apprenticeship routes you decide to take, you'll be choosing to start your career with us. You'll be splitting your week between your place of work and your place of study.

We will cover your course fees, worth approximately £20,000, and you'll earn a salary. At the end of each apprenticeship, you will complete an assessment, which tests both academic learning and occupational competence developed through on-the-job training.

So, if you can manage your time between work and study and want to get a head start in your career, whilst knowing that you won't have the debt at the end of it, explore the different types of apprenticeships we offer.

Our culture and diversity

We play a vital role in connecting millions of people safely, reliably and efficiently to the energy they use. To do this effectively, the diversity of our teams should reflect the communities we serve. We’re working hard to create an inclusive and inspiring culture at National Grid.
