Why Power


A career in the power industry means you’ll be part of the most important large-scale work in the UK – contributing to the country’s energy security. And a career in power has a lot to offer. You’ll have a rewarding and stable career, an environment of teamwork, huge variety and massive career development in a growing, innovative sector.

The UK faces massive future energy challenges, and the power industry needs the workforce and talent to meet those challenges. By 2034 we need to recruit 50,000 engineers to secure the power supply for tomorrow. And there are the meter installers to roll out smart meters, the linesmen to maintain and upgrade the power lines, and the construction and maintenance staff to support wind farms and power stations.

There are opportunities at all levels and for many different skill sets. Learn more about pursuing a career in the power industry.
