UK Power Networks

UK Power Networks joined the DofE in June 2016 as a supporting partner. They have immediately shown their support for the Charity and for their apprentices by putting every UKPN apprentice through their Gold DofE as part of their training; the first group of 15 began their apprenticeships and their DofE journey in September 2016.

UK’s largest owner and operator of public distribution networks

Did you boil a kettle to make a coffee this morning? Or charge your iPod? Or turn on the lights while you brushed your teeth? Have you jumped on the Tube recently or jetted off from one of the major airports in the South East? All of these events could not have occurred without UK Power Networks.

UK Power Networks distributes more than a quarter of the UK’s electricity through its networks of substations, underground cables and overhead lines making sure the lights stay on across London, the South East and the East of England, regardless of who customers pay their energy bills to. A range of other companies deliver power to the rest of the country.

What I love about my job is that nothing is repetitive and I can make a difference every day. I relish the challenges working in this industry presents and I proactively put myself forward to work on projects that are delivering a step-change in our business, improving performance and delivering our values.
