Have you got what it takes to be a craft apprentice?

As National Apprenticeship Week kicks off, we’re on the hunt for young talent to help us build, maintain and repair our electricity distribution network.

Net zero targets are transforming the way we work and craft apprentices will play a key role in our vision to be at the heart of a clean, fair and affordable energy future.

We have 78 vacancies for craft apprentices in the South West, South Wales and the East and West Midlands.

Our apprenticeship programme takes around three years to complete and leads to a City & Guilds Level 2 qualification in electrical engineering. It includes on-the-job training, learning from experienced and qualified engineers.

Following a formal assessment, apprentices become qualified craftspeople working as a Jointer, Fitter, or Overhead Linesperson.

As members of our operational team, they’ll maintain a 24/7 service tackling maintenance, faults, asset replacement and new connections – working outdoors with underground cables, overhead lines and substations that operate between 230 and 132,000 volts.

The closing date for applications is 18 February 2024. Find out more here.
