Our people make it all happen?

It’s an exciting time to be in the energy industry. The scale and pace of change is unlike anything we’ve seen before. We need forward-thinking, creative minds to help meet the challenges we face in connecting people to the energy they use.?

We employ around 22,000 people, located both in the UK and the US. The scale of our organisation means that opportunities abound for those who have the capability and desire to develop their career and fulfil their potential. Our Chief Executive, John Pettigrew, is a great example of this – he joined National Grid as a graduate in 1991! You can read his story in the meet our people section.?

At National Grid, we strive to create value for the customers and communities we serve. And everyone, from the leadership team to the frontline, has a vital role to play.
