At NGV, our success is powered by great people. We’re proud to have a committed team of colleagues who share a passion to transform the future of energy for the better.

NGV is an exciting and fast-moving place to work. We’re an international business, which means our people are diverse in their backgrounds, expertise and experiences. And to make the most of that know-how, we’re forging a collaborative culture where everyone’s voice is valued and people feel empowered to make decisions. It’s an environment with an array of opportunities to grow and progress – a place where each individual can reach their full potential. 

We’re also working hard to improve diversity, equity and inclusion at all levels of our organisation. We’ve made some important commitments already, including a promise to achieve 50% gender diversity by 2050. You can read more about National Grid's Responsibility Charter here.
