Northern Powergrid recruiting for craftsperson apprenticeship with strong earning potential

Climate-focused, with a great starting salary for an apprenticeship. 

Northern Powergrid, the electricity network that powers everyday life for eight million people across North England, is recruiting for its craftsperson apprenticeship programme.

Craftsperson apprenticeships are ideal for practical individuals interested in working for a major UK energy company.

A power network craftsperson is responsible for the safe construction, maintenance and repair of the UK’s electrical power network.

It’s a busy, varied and hands-on role. And if you’re a climate-conscious individual, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll be working towards delivering Northern Powergrid’s Net Zero aims.

Northern Powergrid is offering a starting salary of £19k per annum and claims that, once you’re established, you could earn around £50k.

Andy Bilclough, Northern Powergrid’s director of field operations, has this to say on the apprenticeship: “My career in the power industry started with an apprenticeship, so I’m a strong supporter of these roles.

“Our future workforce needs to represent the communities we serve, so we welcome people from all backgrounds to apply and fulfil their potential with team Powergrid.

“This is a great route into an incredibly important industry. Our role at Northern Powergrid is to be an enabler in our region’s journey towards a low-carbon future.

“It’s a responsibility we take very seriously and are extremely proud to be part of. These apprenticeships offer an opportunity to be part of this team, along with a great career, with lots of future progression and professional development.”

Applications for the craftsperson apprenticeship opened on 18 May and will close at midnight on 11 June. Good luck!
