UK Power Networks
Did you boil a kettle to make a coffee this morning? Or charge your iPod? Or turn on the lights while you brushed your teeth? Have you jumped on the Tube recently or jetted off from one of the major airports in the South East? All of these events could not have occurred without UK Power Networks.UK Power Networks distributes more than a quarter of the UK's electricity through its networks of substations, underground cables and overhead lines making sure the lights stay on across London, the South East and the East of England, regardless of who customers pay their energy bills to. A range of other companies deliver power to the rest of the country.
The UK Power Networks Trailblazer Apprenticeship Programme, endorsed by E&U Skills and Accredited by the IET, provides the opportunity for individuals with an interest in pursuing a career in engineering to become fully trained, qualified and competent "craft" persons in an electrical distribution industry in one of the following trade's cable jointing, overhead lines or electrical plant fitting.
We were the first electricity distributor named in the Sunday Times' 25 Best Big Companies to Work For, and also hold the title of Utility of the Year (2016, 2015 and 2012). We're striving to become an employer of choice, a responsible and respected corporate citizen and sustainably cost efficient. Achieving such objectives means we have embraced a culture based on values of integrity, continuous development, diversity and inclusivity, respect, unity and responsibility.
If you share these values, enjoy working outdoors and want to play a role influencing the energy industry's future and want to join a critical sector at a critical time of change then we believe our unique combination of classroom training, hands-on work and real life experience as well as competitive benefits will get your career with us off to a flying start!
