Electrical Technician - Ambergate £39,488 to £46,456

Are you an Electrician who possess commercial experience and is someone who is looking for great pay as well as a structured work day then we here at National Gas have just the role for you.

As a skilled Electrical technician, you’ll help protect and maintain the high-pressure systems in our Ambergate site. These stations are the engines that power long-distance gas pipelines across the National Transmission System.

Working with our Operations Team, you’ll cover the installation, inspection, commissioning, operation, repair and maintenance of various equipment. You’ll act as incident controller and site main controller and oversee and inspect work carried out by others.

You’ll also issue permission documents, formulate isolations and support with the construction and commissioning of new assets on the system.

You’ll have previously completed an apprenticeship (or other recognised training scheme) and hold a BTEC National Certificate (or equivalent City & Guilds NVQ/SVQ Level 3) in an Electrical discipline.

You’ll have operated, controlled and undertaken work within Safe Systems of Work. You’ll also have experience in undertaking maintenance, fault diagnosis and rectification work within the oil and gas (or similar) industry. We work in hazardous areas, so knowledge of health and safety is key.

Please note: Because this role works so closely with the UK Critical National Infrastructure it does requires National Security Vetting and for us in particular that means you cannot have a criminal record and in the last 5 years you cannot have been out of the UK for cumulatively 6 months or greater than.

If this feels like you, take a peek at the perks below:

A basic salary of up to £46,456 dependent on experience and capability
A bonus based on personal and company performance
26 days’ holiday plus statutory holidays – option available to buy extra holiday days
A pension scheme where we double match your contribution (Maximum company contribution of 12%)
Paid expenses for any business travel and accommodation
A flexible benefit scheme where you can opt into a whole host of lifestyle options
Access to employee support, care, and assistance helplines

About Us

We are National Gas, including National Gas Transmission and National Gas Metering.

In February 2023 we became a standalone business, to maintain and own the Gas Infrastructure in the UK. But more than that, to develop and grow this infrastructure to set us up for a cleaner energy future. A future of Hydrogen.

This means we are currently in a period of both opportunity and uncertainty. While nobody knows exactly what things will look like in a years’ time, those who join the business now will have a unique opportunity to shape the future of Gas Transmission in the UK.

Business separations take a long time, so you might still see some references to National Grid here and there. This is part of the process, and won’t make any difference to your application.

We are a flexible working organisation. At National Gas, we are committed to building a workforce that represents the communities we serve. We celebrate the different experiences our colleagues bring to our organisation, and strongly encourage applicants of all backgrounds to apply. Find out more about what we’re doing on our Diversity and Inclusion webpage.

The closing date is 25th February, although in some cases I’ll close the ad early, so don’t delay.
