Engineer - Electrical Integrity

Job Description

Engineer - Electrical Integrity

Nobody really knows how you get it done, apart from you.

At least, that’s what it feels like.

In reality, you’ll be surrounded by talented people with all sorts of skill sets and specialities. They’ll still turn to you for technical advice, because when it comes to electrical integrity, there’s nobody better. 

As Electrical Integrity Engineer, you'll review and authorise Management of Change documentation, review inspection and test documentation prior to Commissioning Authorisation and review project documentation and authorise project closure. 

You'll provide a focus for electrical integrity issues and queries and represent electrical integrity at meetings and workshops. You'll also assist with the Electrical Authorisation Processes, including training and assessment. 

You'll ensure compliance with relevant legislations i.e. EAWR, DSEAR etc. and National Gas policies and procedures within the electrical integrity environment, providing assurance of the integrity of the electrical systems at the terminals, compressors and above ground installations around the network.

As an expert in electrical engineering, it goes without saying that you'll have a degree (or equivalent) and/or previous experience in a related subject. You'll also be a Chartered Engineer with a relevant professional institute.

You'll also need knowledge in some of the following areas; LV and HV systems, Electrical Safety Rules, C&I, CP and Protection systems or Software/Firmware. 

Your starting location will be your home, but you’ll be out and about visiting sites and external suppliers, probably around 50% of the time. Sometimes you might even need to stay over. Therefore, it's essential you hold a valid driving licence.

Depending on your experience, we have 2 vacancies that you can be considered for; an Electrical Integrity Engineer (salary range - £45,030 to £56,979) and a Senior Electrical Integrity Engineer (salary range - £51,130 to £64,999).

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

  • A bonus based on personal and company performance

  • 25 days’ holiday (increasing to 26 days' following 2 years' employment) 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

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.

The closing date is 31st March 2023, although in some cases I’ll close the ad early.

I’ll respond to every single application.
