I have been working at National Grid (UK) (Less than a year)
A good working environment with a lot of people who care about your development. Money is good for the amount of work you put it.
The company is a little slow-paced and it might be hard to find the information you need. Most of the managers aren't very charismatic people.
Advice to Management
It might be a good idea to appoint younger managers.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at National Grid (UK) (London, England) in October 2017.
I applied online, in a couple of days I could fill out the aptitude and numeracy tests, which were quite long and easy, even boring. In a couple of weeks, I was invited to a telephone interview, there is a good online system for scheduling interviews. The phone interview was somewhat one-sided, as my interviewer couldn't answer my questions about the role.
Our apprenticeships have now closed for this years in-take. These will re-open September/October 2017. We are still hiring for various roles which you can find via the link:
We still have some apprenticeships available to apply for. You have until 31st January to apply for Gas Distribution, System Operator and Network Management; and the beginning of February for Gas Transmission.
