GCHQ

Terrorism. Drug-smuggling. Arms dealing. Cybercrime. Money laundering. A woman's work is never done.

You might think the world of intelligence and security services is a male-orientated world. Not so. It's important for us to fully reflect Britain's population, which means we're fully committed to diversity and the different perspectives it brings to our work. Women are under-represented in technical and engineering roles.

So if you're looking for a genuinely interesting career with outstanding development potential, consider GCHQ. Using some of the world's most powerful technology, we work alongside MI5 and MI6 in helping counter threats to Britain.

Based in Cheltenham, ours is a highly technical environment, and we recruit graduates from all disciplines into entry level roles in a huge range of technical and engineering functions. 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.

National Grid

National Grid is one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the world. We own and manage the grids that connect people to the energy they need, from whatever the source. In Britain and the north-eastern states of the US we run systems that deliver gas and electricity to millions of people, businesses and communities.

In Britain, we run the gas and electricity systems that our society is built on, delivering gas and electricity across the country. We own the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales, operating it across Great Britain. We also own and operate the high pressure gas transmission system in Britain.

In the North Eastern US, we connect more than seven million gas and electric customers to vital energy sources, essential for our modern lifestyles. Our portfolio of other businesses is mainly concerned with infrastructure provision and related services where we can exploit our core skills and assets to create value.

These businesses operate in areas such as metering, import of liquefied natural gas (LNG) at our terminal on the Isle of Grain, interconnectors and property.
