Student Programmes

We offer a variety of undergraduate schemes - whether you are looking for a year in an organisation before you go to university or if you have the option of a placement year as part of your degree, we have a student programme for you.

Packages vary from programme to programme but the main benefit students get with all the placements available is the exceptional opportunity to see inside National Grid and see if we're the company for you. We ensure all our placements are structured with clear objectives, and you'll be closely monitored by your line manager, who will continuously help and support you while you develop your career skills.

Deliver excellent performance during your placement and you will be offered an opportunity on our Graduate Development Programme at the start of your final year, leaving you free to concentrate on achieving that all important grade. 

Packages Include:

  • Industrial Placements - a year long placement on £15,600 per annum / 2-day development workshop
  • Internship - a 12 week paid placement on £15,600 (pro rata).

Newnet membership - as a new recruit with National Grid you are invited to join Newnet, our employee network for all new starters. With a whole range of events and activities organised by the members of Newnet, it's a great way of meeting people and enjoying yourself. Some of the events are fundraisers - and that's as good a reason as any to get involved. Plus there are many community and educational initiatives.
