Asset and Data Engineer


Warwick, GB, CV34 6DA

Division:  Network Development
Job Type: 
Requisition Number:  56776
Department:  Electricity Transmission - Non-Operations
Job Function:  Engineering

About the role


National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) is at the heart of energy in the UK. The electricity we provide gets the nation to work, powers schools and brings energy to life. Our energy network connects the nation, so it’s essential that it’s continually evolving, advancing and improving.  In NGET we are passionate about both operating our network safely and providing highly reliable quality of supply for our customers. 


All assets connected to our transmission system are thermally rated to ensure that we can safely operate the network.  The database of ratings is a live system which requires continually updating when a new circuit is added, or an upgrade takes place.


As Asset and Data Engineer you will manage and maintain the thermal rating and circuit data, from project commissioning through to asset replacement, taking an active role in the development of the tools required to publish this data.  You’ll be responsible for the integrity of all the data held within the Thermal Ratings Database.


You’ll engage with stakeholders from the Electricity System Operator (ESO) as well as NGET departments, to ensure that the data is understood and updated.  You’ll also respond to requests to calculate thermal rating enhancements to maximise capability on the network.

This role is based out of our offices in Warwick, and we would ideally like to see you there 2-3 days per week.  This can be combined with hybrid working from home.



What you'll need


You’ll be a self-starter with critical thinking and problem-solving skills.  An understanding of engineering and asset management, in particular the capabilities of assets and their limitations, would be advantageous for this role, however training will be provided. 

Educated to Degree level (or equivalent) in an engineering, numeric or science-based subject, or possessing equivalent skills or experience, you’ll have strong numerical, analytical and MS Excel skills, and be capable of utilising ratings assessment tools.  

Stakeholder management skills are key, as is the ability to discuss and present detailed technical information in a way understandable to a non-expert.  In addition, you’ll have the ability to prioritise your workload, managing requests for guidance from multiple stakeholders.
