Work at the heart of National Grid
Would you like to work for a company that makes electricity happen for every single person in England and Wales? A company that invests billions in Net Zero and creating a brighter energy future?
On this apprenticeship you will be working towards a Level 3 EAL Subsidiary Diploma in Engineering Technologies.
You will also be paid over £21,000 a year while you train, with free food, accommodation, and travel.
Our three-year Advanced Apprenticeship Substations will train you to become a technician in one of our 347 substations. Our substations transform high-voltage electricity into low-voltage electricity, which can be used in homes and businesses. They also connect energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar farms, to the transmission network.
Our technicians play a vital role in looking after our substations. Without their careful maintenance the safe, reliable supply of electricity simply could not happen. This apprenticeship will allow you to become one of them.
You’ll be learning to do things like maintenance work on power transformers, main connections, and terminals. You’ll be repairing different types of joints and working with things such as air systems, batteries, and environmental battery charger systems.
Following strict safety guidelines, you will carry out the maintenance, repair, and monitoring of high-voltage substation equipment. This will include circuit breakers, transformers, disconnectors, compressors, and auxiliary systems.
As you can probably tell, these apprenticeships are for people who really want to get stuck in. If that sounds like it might be you, we’d be very interested in receiving your application.
