Why it matters
National Grid is at the heart of the energy we all use, we get the nation to work, power schools and heat our homes. Our energy network connects the nation, so it's essential that it's continually evolving, advancing and improving. That means a huge programme of capital investment and a diverse range of major, strategic sourcing projects. From connections for new offshore wind-farms to ink for thousands of office printers, we aim to deliver best value to the business.
The efficiencies you drive don’t just matter to us. Because energy is vital to people and businesses up and down the country, they matter to everyone. On top of that, there’s the sheer variety of the work you could do. From purchasing environmental services to seabed surveys, scaffolding to electrical testing, telecommunications to car fleets, the range of goods and services National Grid buys is as diverse as it is challenging. You’ll build specialist expertise in sourcing, managing and delivering high-profile, high-value, highly complex contracts. And you’ll develop a flair for analysing and exploiting economies of scale – something that’s fundamental to the way our Procurement team operates.
