For screening purposes in our recruitment process, we use tools that incorporate artificial intelligence (“AI”) and may qualify as Automated Employment Decision Tools (AEDTs).

Please visit our Privacy Policy to understand your rights, involving our use of AI.

We use tools to assess a candidate's overall application, relative to the required job specifications in our live postings.  As an applicant to any National Grid job posting, you have the opportunity during the application process to opt out of having your application being assessed by tools, where applicable.

In compliance with New York City Local Law 144, National Grid is making available the latest results of the bias audits conducted on these potential AEDTs. The information is found using the links here for HiredScore.

If you have opted-in to the use of potential AEDTs and would like to know more about how this tool has reached its outcome, relevant to your application, please do get in touch with us at HR.Compliance@nationalgrid.com.
