Homes, businesses, industry – they need energy, 24/7, 365 days a year. That’s why our engineers are so important. They’re the people who make this possible. They’re always there, ready to respond to emergency calls, carry out planned work and to ensure energy gets to where it’s needed – quickly and efficiently. In fact, it’s some of the most challenging and rewarding work around. Which is why our engineers get fantastic learning and development opportunities. That way, they can grow their skills and knowledge, whilst always providing customers with an outstanding service.

Our different roles:

Maintenance Engineer

Your background may be from pressure asset environment or you may have a strong mechanical & electrical background. Perhaps you have experience with street works and cathodic protection?

Either way we want to hear from you. Offering a first rate package along with extensive training – this really is an environment where you can make an impact and build a future for yourself!
