At National Grid we have a lot of engineers. Their engineering and asset management expertise is vital to keep the gas and electricity flowing to where it needs to be, so everyone in the regions where we operate can go about their daily lives.
This day-to-day activity is, however, only one part of the story. Our people are also working on incredibly challenging engineering projects so that, many years from now, future generations will also benefit from secure, affordable and sustainable energy.
The following case studies provide more details:
Engineering and asset management are vital to our ability to deliver safe, efficient, reliable and environmentally sound performance. Our Chief Engineers make sure there is significant focus on engineering and asset management at a senior level within our organisation.
- We recruit, train and develop talented people who can go on to lead the energy industry in the future.
- We help our employees achieve professional registration, by offering structured training and mentoring.
- We advance careers by encouraging dialogue between senior engineers and engineering staff, publicising successful career paths and focusing on skills development.
- We work closely with organisations, such as the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Asset Management, to raise standards and promote the profession.
We also support developing the skills and capabilities of young people through skills-sharing employee volunteering; especially in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. It supports our future talent recruitment and our desire to see young people gain meaningful employment.
