About the role

Gas Transmission operates and maintains the national gas transmission system in the UK. Historically, our gas has come from the UK continental shelf fields.

It’s a new phase, making this an even more exciting time to join.

Our National Transmission System (NTS) which stretches right across Scotland, England and Wales is made up of approximately 9,000 km of high pressure steel pipelines and 25 compressor stations. Joining the Gas Transmission team behind it, you’ll help them deliver the improvements essential to its ongoing safety, reliability and security whilst also working on external customer projects.

Key Tasks and Areas of Work

On this two year development course, you’ll be challenged from the start as you take on all aspects of project management, high pressure gas engineering, operation and maintenance through a structured training programme, all while studying for a Foundation degree. We’ll support you every step of the way. And if you successfully complete the course, you’ll kick start your career equipped with the all-round skills and experience needed to shine.
