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.
