DO. YOUR. HOMEWORK. Research the company thoroughly and understand the business area/role you are applying for. Be able to confidently explain how the business fits in with the wider industry and be able to demonstrate a technical appreciation for types of gas assets in the network. Research the regulatory framework under which the business is regulated and how it earns money. You will get asked these questions!

Read the website to gain an understanding of the company, what it does and its culture, especially looking at the Graduate Competencies.

Graduate Engineer, at Cadent

Application Advice:

Try and apply as early as you can and be patient as they sometimes take a while to get back to you. Be honest and provide as much information about previous jobs, experiences and extra curricular activities as you will never know what can catch their eye. You also need to be prepared to move around during the scheme as they require you to be flexible. Most of the roles are not heavily technical as they usually outsource these type of activities so that's something to consider for those who are very technically biased, you're not going to be spending all day doing calculations.

Interview Advice:

Do your research on the industry and company along with its current affairs as you will probably get a question on this. Know the company's core values. Prepare for competency based questions and calm your nerves, the assessors are not there to catch you out. Just be yourself and everything else will fall into place.

Application Advice:

Make sure you thoroughly prepare for the testing, feel free to re-record the video interview until you think it's just right, but don't over think it too much.

Interview Advice:

Really research the industry and company beforehand as they do ask questions to test your knowledge of this.
Prepare answers to questions around the core values of the company, and make sure you use a variety of different things that you've done to display this.
If they ask you if you have other offers be honest with them about it.

Application Advice:

If you're seeking an engineering career, look carefully. This is a company in the engineering industry but does not do much engineering on a day to day basis as most activities revolve around maintaining a vast pre-existing network of infrastructure, with a lot of the actual large project work outsourced.
However, if you're looking to see how a large business in the energy industry grows and operates, this company is definitely worth applying to. It provides exposure to all levels of the business in a rapidly evolving industry. In applying, make your goals clear - what would you like to see/be involved in?

Interview Advice:

Prepare for your assessment centre by reading up on the industry. Be mentally agile and prepared to adapt to new situations. Emphasise your ability to build on others and support others, not just your ability to shine.

Ethics

Graduate Engineer, Operations at Cadent

Best:

loads of room for moving up, no limits within company, loads of benefits for employees

Worst:

Company can at times be too big, distance between field force and managers is alot at times

Apprentice Role, at Cadent

Best:

Loads of opportunities available to graduates. And in reality its a very secure business in terms of job security.

Worst:

It doesn't operate in a true competitive market being a regulated monopoly. So there can be times when the business does feel like it has a bit of 'fat' on it. Its not the most efficient business you will come across.

Best:

There are plenty of fantastic development opportunities. It is a wonderful working environment because everyone is always willing to spare some time help across all hierarchical levels. The training offered is extremely comprehensive and there is a lot of support available for personal, as well as professional development. Volunteering opportunities also available for those who like giving back to communities. The 6 month rotational placements give you an opportunity to experience other areas of the business and its up to you to pitch for where you want to go.

Worst:

There scheme is not structured and set up to guide you through to chartership if that's something you're interested in. It will mostly be self driven albeit they're happy to pay for the fees and have mentors available. Migrating to a new business unit every six months means you have to leave by the time you start getting properly comfortable.

Best:

Really big focus placed on personal development and making sure that that happens

Worst:

Quite stuck in its ways and bureaucratic, so making changes can often be difficult

Best:

The business takes great care of its employees and invests a lot of time and effort in developing its employees as people in terms of their skills and knowledge.

Worst:

The company has a long history and brings with it a lot of red-tape, but this is now changing and improving.
