National GridNational Grid is at the heart of energy in the UK. Connecting millions of customers in England, Scotland and Wales with gas and electricity, our people make sure that the lights are on, homes are heated and businesses powered.

You’ll be at the heart of it all.

National Grid’s award-winning National Consents Team is now looking to recruit Town Planners, Environmental Assessment & Project Development Specialists to further increase its resources and grow its technical capabilities.

The team provides consenting support to a great diversity of energy infrastructure projects, including DCO projects, from inception
through development and into delivery, on land and in the sea, and has a strong, exciting increasingly diverse and challenging project workbook. Project scale and complexity also varies greatly, so to do the consenting regimes and the environmental assessment con-siderations and challenges. Current in-flight projects include Hinkley Connection, Viking Interconnector and London Power Tunnels 2.

The team is high-performing, has a strong culture of sharing great practice, as well as a visible desire to continuously improve and add value. To continue to do the latter we need to do things differently, look at what’s happening around us, get the best people out there to develop and grow the team, and remain a consenting service of choice for all our customers.

If you feel like a challenge, and want to make a difference, or just want to know more about what we do and how we do it, apply now.
