Power System Operations
This team is focused around the Electricity National Control Centre in Berkshire. It is responsible for operating Great Britain’s electricity transmission network – planning and managing its live operation – they keep things running smoothly 24/7 days a year.
On finishing the two-year Trainee Engineer Programme, you will take up a post that will lead either to a role in Power System Planning or part of the Power System Control team.
In both of these roles, you will be using your newly acquired power systems knowledge to ensure the most secure and economic operation of the network. These are crucial jobs and because lights stay on 24/7, 365 days a year, the live Control role involves shift work. Liaising with internal departments and external stakeholders, such as Distribution Network Operators and Generators, your influence will be felt across the whole country.
As a Control Engineer, you could be on one of the transmission despatch desks where you’ll switch on/off the transmission system to allow the team on site to safely work on the system. Or you could work within energy scheduling where you’ll produce accurate operating programmes aimed at matching National Grid’s demand forecast with the supply data coming from the electricity generators.
As a Planning Engineer you’ll be optimising long term plans and looking at future developments across the UK to ensure our operational plan is as effective as possible and adapt the plan for any changes we encounter.
They are both exciting opportunities which give you a real insight into how we keep the country running!
Recruiting people from their local communities is important to us and ensures you have a great support network both home and away.
