Job Details

Joining a Higher Apprentice Programme at National Grid gives you the opportunity to be responsible for the successful planning and delivery of project work, with real responsibility from day one. If you know what career direction you want to take, why not start a career whilst also studying at university or college, debt-free, and getting experience under your belt. Key tasks and areas of work as a Higher Apprentice with our Planning, Estimating, Risk and Reporting colleagues you'll gain experience in all aspects of estimating, risk and cost management including:

•Participating in scheme teams, preparing budget estimates for future construction projects through their development from business case to contract award.

•Supporting Project Managers and their teams during project delivery.

•Maintaining the Cost Book we use to estimate the process of our work to reflect market trends by analysing tender submissions and outturn prices on completed projects.

•Helping to run risk workshops and scanning project risk registers to identify and flag broader risk trends that might impact our portfolio.•Understanding how projects interact with each other and the operational constraints of a live system with National Grid’s outage plan.

•The opportunity to be involved in project planning and programme management of live projects.

By achieving all of this you’ll be making sure we hit the Network Output Measures plan; the projects that protect the asset health ratings which drive a large part of National Grid’s revenue.


In every moment energy is rolling over hills, winding through valleys, travelling across the country, and finding its way to our fingertips, on demand – and it’s up to us to keep people connected.

Through our energy transmission network, we connect millions safely and reliably to the energy they need. It’s this purpose that drives us forward. Join us and, together, we’ll work to build a more sustainable, better connected future.

National Grid touches the lives of almost everyone in the UK, with an energy network that stretches across the Atlantic. We’re an international team, and our work underpins the lives of millions of people. Feet forwards, head up, and eyes bright, we’re working hard to create value for people today – and shape the future of energy tomorrow.

In the UK, we don’t generate or sell energy – we join the dots to get energy from A to B. From making a cup of tea in the morning, to keeping the lights on in hospitals, our electricity network puts power in the hands of people. Without it, the world as we know it would grind to a halt.

Apprentices are at the heart of our ambitions, which is why we have been committed to investing in the futures of new talent for over 40 years. From engineers to our commercial and head office roles, there’s so many directions a career here could take. And, with new technology and innovation evolving at a rapid rate, there’s never been a better time to be part of our team.
