Due to the sensitive nature of this role, if your application is successful, you may be required to undergo National Security Vetting in addition to the standard background checks National Grid carry out. If these additional security checks are required, you may need to evidence that you have resided in the UK for at least the last 3 years. National Security Vetting is carried out by a third party provider, HM Revenue & Customs Cluster Security Unit (HMRC CSU), which is part of the UK Government. More information about HMRC CSU’s use of your personal data can be found on their website.
