Taking your first few steps into a new job can seem daunting, that’s why we have a range of schemes to make the transition from education to a career an easy one.
All our schemes are designed to support and kickstart your career in a fast-paced working environment at the heart of the energy sector’s transformation.

We have a range of schemes in place for school-leavers through to graduates. Designed with flexibility in mind, we aim to offer the right opportunity to candidates that share our key values and relish the challenge of being a pioneer in the energy sector.
You don’t need a degree to find an entry point to the energy sector with us. We have apprentices across the UK, focused on two different specialisms: Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. All our new apprentices will be studying the Maintenance & Operations Engineering Technician Standard which is a Level 3 Diploma. Introduced in 2018, we are ensuring the next generation of skilled talent is ready to join the workforce. The qualification will provide the apprentices with an all-round knowledge of:
Any computer connected to the internet is vulnerable to attacks. So Cyber Security is a big deal to businesses and society. Cyber Security technologists are on the front line of information security – you’ll fight cyber threats – protecting systems and employees from harm.
Using logic, and your creative skills, you’ll keep one step ahead of hackers and cyber criminals. You could work in technical areas like security design, testing, investigations, and response. Or, you could work in risk analysis on cyber operations, risk, governance, and compliance. Either way, you’ll make technology secure and safe.
Our Infrastructure Technician Level 3 Apprenticeship combines online learning, classroom training and on-the-job experience to develop real world skills using innovative technology.
This apprenticeship opens up opportunities to develop and enhance digital skills, ensuring people have the grounding needed to become skilled PC professionals, data defenders, or cloud controllers.
Software Development technicians build simple software applications – they could be web, mobile or desktop. You’ll work in a team, contributing your part to large software development projects.
Part of the job is interpreting simple design requirements – understanding what’s required and how you’re going to create it. Teamwork is key. You’ll work with code that other people in your team have developed to produce your part of the project.
Like to get things working? You’ll also test your component to make sure it does what it’s supposed to do.
Development and workplace exposure doesn’t need to wait until after you have left school. We offer work experience at our Solihull Head Office over school holidays or for a year-long position alongside studying.
Work Experience can be varied and give exposure across the business or specialised, focusing on one aspect of the business. Local students can gain experience in these areas:
From October 2017 to May 2018, Millie Platt joined us 1-day per week during term time for a year-long work experience placement rotating around the many business areas. Millie worked on our previous partnership with charity St Basils – “It is great to see something I worked on to be delivered” as well as visiting sites and helping in HR to process the many new starters to join the fast-growing team. Working with us sparked Millie’s interest in energy, although she admits she “wasn’t really aware of energy” before starting. Work experience students get fully immersed in our activities and delivers real business results.
Professional Development isn’t only available to those on the scheme. Whether joining in your first role or bringing many years’ experience, we continue to invest in our talent and develop staff to ensure they reach their full potential.
