About us


National Grid Electricity Transmission is at the heart of energy in the UK - we own and maintain the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales. Every time a phone is plugged in or a switch is turned on we’ve played a part - connecting you to the electricity you need. 


About the role


Hybrid and flexible working ingrained into our culture, this permanent role offers a mix of office working in Warwick (min two days per week) and home working. We can also offer some flexibility in terms of reduced hours and start/finish times.


Help us to advance the critical infrastructure needed to reach the UK’s NetZero ambitions…

A base salary between £45,000 and £56,000 + performance-based bonus of up to 6%. We have a reputation for promoting a healthy work/life balance. If you want to see more of your children, help care for relatives, or simply get to walk your dog every evening then our flexible working arrangements will support you. You’ll have 25 days annual leave + the option to buy or sell holiday days, things such as 26 weeks fully paid parental or adoption leave, and back-up care service are standard. Our double-matched pension contribution scheme means your pension could be worth up to 18% of your salary and you’ll have the option to purchase discounted National Grid shares - our share price has risen over 30% in the past year!* On top of all of this we offer financial support for study and we are committed to your career development.
