Helping you find a career in the Energy & utilities industry

The energy and utility sector covers the power, water and oil & gas markets. Within these markets, there are different functions – from building and maintaining equipment to buying power on the wholesale market for resale to customers, or from treating water to make it safe, to extracting and refining fossil fuels. The energy & utilities sector also includes the growing renewable energy sector.

While there are several large businesses operating in the energy & utilities sector (for example: BP, British Gas, Yorkshire Water), it is also a sector with a growing number of smaller businesses (SMEs).

There is a broad variety of roles available depending on the area of the energy & utilities sector which you are interested in. Many larger businesses will offer structured apprenticeship training programmes in specific disciplines, particularly in engineering. These apprenticeships will either be at advanced (Level 3) or higher/degree (Levels 4-6) levels.

Many roles in the oil & gas sector can entail international travel, although only a small percentage of them involve spending time ‘off-shore’ on an oil/gas rig. Across all organisations there are roles in core business functions (HR, marketing, finance, etc.) available too.

Depending on the level at which you join, you can expect an apprenticeship to last 3-4 years. During which you will split your time between gaining on-the-job experience in the office or on-site, and in an FE College or university (typically 1 day per week) completing the academic aspect of your training.

Once you complete the apprenticeship, you will have attained either an apprentice Certificate in a specific discipline, an HNC qualification and a BTEC (Level 3), or a bachelor’s degree (BSc or BEng) in engineering (Level 6).

Some employers will offer a series of short (3-6 month) rotations in different parts of each function as part of the apprenticeship, while others will invite you to specialise when you complete your initial application.
