Meet Matt

Build a career for the future. We've launched a major engineering initiative to renew the UK's network of gas pipelines, improving services for everyone. To deliver this high-profile work we need talented people to join our Construction Engineer Training Programme. This will give you the skills and experience to lead teams and ongoing projects over the next decade and beyond.

A number of Construction Engineer trainees will be deployed into the Gas Operations business, where responsibilities will include managing teams who deal with gas emergencies and leakage repair in addition to mains replacement.

The project - to replace old iron pipes with plastic polyethylene - is a massive undertaking, involving contractors, partners and major engineering challenges. Mixing on-the-job experience with formal technical and leadership training, this programme will last between two and four years - depending on your skills and qualifications on entry, and will prepare you to manage teams and complex projects. At the end, you'll be a skilled team leader/manager with the following qualifications:

  • BTEC and HNC in Mechanical Engineering
  • Level 5 Diploma in Engineering Management
  • Engineering Technician status with the Institute of Gas Engineers
