We’re the Government Communications Headquarters – GCHQ. We’re a world-leading intelligence, cyber and security agency with a clear purpose – to keep the UK and its citizens safe, at home, overseas, and online. Working closely with our partners, MI5 and SIS (MI6), we counter threats such as cyber-attacks, terrorism, and serious crime.

Ours is a highly technical environment, and we recruit graduates from all disciplines into a wide range of technical and engineering roles. While the work is totally unique, the skills and professional qualifications you gain will be industry standard, and transferable. Everyone benefits from personalised training, mentoring and shadowing.

Our unique work relies on people with unique perspectives and that’s why we’ll never ask you to be anything other than yourself. For us, having a diverse workforce isn’t a box ticking exercise, it’s an essential part of keeping the UK safe. So if you’re looking for a genuinely interesting career with outstanding development potential, consider GCHQ.

National Grid

National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) owns and maintains the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales.

That includes 7,236 kilometres of overhead line, about 2,806 kilometres of underground cable and 350 substations. We move electricity from where it’s generated, down the ‘motorway’ of the electricity system, to our direct customers and to the distribution companies who deliver that power to homes and businesses.

We play a vital role in connecting millions of people to the energy they use, safely, reliably and efficiently. Through transformational engineering, we are helping our country to achieve its green targets, by ensuring our network gives fair access to cleaner sources of energy. The transition to a low-carbon economy is one of the defining issues of the 21st century, and we can’t make a bigger difference in today’s, or tomorrow’s, world than to create a road to net zero.
