Hi, we're Cadent! You might have seen us working in your community and spotted our vans driving around. It's our responsibility to look after your gas pipes so you can get safe, reliable and low carbon energy now and for years to come. Did you know that we manage 82,000 miles of gas pipes? Placed end to end that would stretch more than three times around the world! We hope to inspire you to join us and be part of our 6,000 strong team working across four gas networks. We'd love to hear from you, so don't forget to check out our latest vacancies.
Since we started operating in 2005, we’ve been leading the way as one of the most cost-efficient of the UK’s eight gas distribution networks. We deliver great value for money to our customers, as well as a whole host of social and economic benefits to our region. We’re recognised as a dynamic, passionate, conscious and people focused team that safely and reliably delivers gas to over 2.7 million homes and businesses across the North East, northern Cumbria and much of Yorkshire. Although we don’t source the gas, fix boilers and appliances, or get involved with plumbing, we work with those that do to deliver it through a vast network of underground pipes that are constantly being invested in and upgraded. And while our customers may not see us very often, they can sleep soundly knowing that we’re working around the clock to keep them connected and make sure they stay safe.
Every day at Wales & West Utilities, our team of more than 1,300 skilled and dedicated colleagues do their very best to keep our 7.5 million customers safe and warm, with gas connections and a gas supply they can rely on combined with a level of service they can trust. We don’t sell gas; instead we use our extensive pipeline to transport gas to homes and businesses throughout Wales and the south west of England. This involves maintaining and replacing our gas pipe network, connecting new properties and responding to customer gas emergencies. We launched Wales & West Utilities in 2005, and since then we have worked hard to build our impressive and established reputation for delivering excellent customer service with safety, reliability and value for money at the heart of everything we do. We are there for our customers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – it’s a vital service and one that we are extremely proud to deliver.
