The thing I enjoy most about working with clients is coming up with solutions together which benefit them from a network resilience and carbon footprint point of view and to make sure they are happy and satisfied with the work we are doing.

I am responsible for creating and delivering a wide variety of technical design projects using AutoCAD and Netmap. I am gaining experience working with an inspiring and talented team.

I stay safe by following procedures and if I see anything around me that looks dangerous I will challenge it to keep others safe too.

I help maintain the electrical infrastructure that powers a purpose-built living and working accommodation for some 18,700 soldiers from the British Army. I also promote mental health awareness internally by serving as a mental health first aider to my colleagues.

Marta Canelo Ruiz

An apprenticeship is a different way of learning. I like to be hands on with my learning so it made more sense to me. I'm training to be an underground cable jointer. We get a substantial amount of support with our apprenticeship, it's so rewarding.

Josh Pavey
Apprentice

I lead and manage a team of engineers, apprentices and contractors to deliver construction and maintenance works in a safe and efficient manner.

With passion, you could start at the bottom and end wherever you set your goals.

I support projects in the area of microgrids, asset analytics and Internet of Things. The real time monitoring and predictive maintenance projects I work on help businesses unlock value from their assets and reduce costs.
