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.

The closing date is 31st March, although in some cases I’ll close the ad early, so don’t delay.

I’ll respond to every single application.
