Our ambition is to operate and develop our business in a way that results in a more inclusive culture. We are committed to building a workforce that represents the communities we serve – creating an environment where each individual feels respected, fairly treated, valued and able to reach their full potential.
Everyone contributes to realise our ambition and it’s the sheer dedication of our people that gives us the energy to deliver. So, we look for talent and innovation, expect high performance and believe in opportunities for enthusiastic people who share our ambition, values and mind-set.
Having strong role models around the business is important and sharing real-life stories can help us see possibilities as well as potential career paths that we may not have previously considered.
Following last year’s publication of the second edition of Remarkable, this year we have worked globally with our colleagues to create a third volume – including stories about inclusion, working smarter, development, giving and determination.
These role models are real people, telling open and honest real stories that we can all relate to. We hope you will enjoy the book and encourage you to share it.
You may also want to take a look at our first and second volumes of Remarkable – published in the Summer of 2016 and December 2017 respectively. These books were created by our UK women’s network, Women in National Grid (WiNG), to shine a spotlight on our talent and diversity.
Volume 1 was created to celebrate gender diversity and encourage more women into engineering and energy careers; focusing, in particular, on showing that personal circumstance is not a barrier to a successful and rewarding career.
For Volume 2 we worked with all our Employee Resource Groups to celebrate the full diversity of talent across National Grid.
We're a large business serving millions of people, operating in a fast-changing industry, with a huge range of activities and a burning ambition to be a true global leader. This all creates exciting new challenges for those who join one of our industry-leading development programmes.
