Join us on the journey to net zero

As Great Britain’s electricity system operator (ESO), we sit at the heart of the electricity system, using our outstanding engineering and commercial expertise to balance electricity supply and demand. Ultimately, we keep the electricity flowing directly to where it’s needed, second by second.

The country has set out its ambition to produce net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and the energy industry is responding – together we are building a cleaner, greener Britain. We, as ESO, have an important role on this journey: we are constantly thinking about how to best shape the future of energy, and are working to operate a greener and cleaner electricity system.

Wherever you are in your career, National Grid ESO is a great place to work. You’ll be part of an organisation with a clear purpose, an inclusive and collaborative culture and you’ll have access to industry leading training and development. Join us and help to build a greener, net zero future for Great Britain.
