Electrical power networks engineer

Electrical power networks engineer

Maintain and repair assets on the electricity network

The electrical power networks engineer apprenticeship covers six engineer roles, specifically asset management, control, electrical project, and planning and operational delivery. In one of these roles, you’ll work to provide engineering solutions to solve complex electricity network scenarios in order to safely manage electricity supplies in normal and abnormal conditions. Using company or client network strategies, you’ll plan, manage, control, construct, replace, maintain and repair assets on the electricity network. You’ll work in engineering teams that may include other engineers and business specialists, such as procurement, finance and telecommunications. You’ll be responsible for the quality of your own work, and possibly the work of others, and will ensure that all tasks are completed safely, meet stakeholder quality, time, productivity and budget requirements, and that the integrity and efficient running of the network are maintained.
