Be part of something world-changing

Our mission is to meet the challenges of the future and deliver cleaner, affordable electricity. We constantly strive to do this better by using technology and innovation to transform the way we work.

The time to act on climate change is now. As part of our team, you won’t just be touching the lives of almost everyone in Great Britain – you’ll be shaping the way we use and consume energy for generations to come.

It’s thanks to our team of amazing people that we have one of the most reliable electricity systems in the world.

  • Power systems engineers

    Our people are at the heart of the ESO, working hard to operate a safe and reliable electricity system, whilst supporting the transition to a greener, and more efficient system for future generations.

    Climate change is the challenge of a generation, and the time to act is now. Join us and you won’t just be touching the lives of almost everyone in Great Britain – you will be shaping the way we use and consume energy for generations to come.

  • Electricity System Operator

    National grid Electricity System Operator (ESO), a legally separate business within the National Grid Group, is the electricity system operator for Great Britain. The ESO moves electricity around the system to keep homes and businesses supplied with the energy they need 24/7.

    In addition to balancing the system second-by-second to make sure supply always meets demand, the ESO is planning for the future too. Its ambition is to be able to operate a zero carbon electricity system by 2025, which will be crucial in helping the UK meet its wider zero carbon target.

New jobs to boost zero carbon ambition

Help lead the transition towards a zero-carbon electricity grid by joining the Electricity System Operator (ESO). 

When you join us and, following the most up to date COVID guidelines, you will be based at either our Head Office in Warwick or our Electricity Control Centre in Berkshire.

We're looking for new engineers, analysts, digital experts and commercial specialists to help us to balance electricity demand with supply and make sure the network runs efficiently and effectively – as well as help to shape the future of the energy market, providing analysis and insight to accommodate new technologies and ways of working.

The ESO is a legally separate part of the National Grid Group, helping to build a greener, net-zero future for Great Britain. Our colleagues are enabling the transition away from fossil fuels to cleaner power and have overseen recent major milestones, including zero-carbon electricity overtaking fossil fuels for the first time in 2019 and a record period of electricity generation without burning coal in Summer 2020.
