We're one of the UK's leading power and gas companies. But it's the energy that's generated by our people that powers our business. Which is why HR is so central to our success.

As an organisation, we're not just committed to searching for more efficient energy solutions. We're always looking to find better and more efficient ways of working too. To make that happen, we're in the process of rolling out a three-year programme called Changing HR. The programme will make it easier for our people managers to quickly find all the information, support and advice they need to lead and support their teams.

HR has a broader role to play too. We're not the kind of company that ever likes to stand still, and our HR business partners are having a direct influence on our future direction.

They input into key decisions, advise on core business approaches and provide the kind of fresh ideas that act as a catalyst for change. They lead our HR strategies too, whether they're looking at how best to support our long and short-term business goals or coming up with structures that will improve individual and organisational performance.

If you're the kind of person who can build lasting relationships and quickly inspire confidence, it all makes this a uniquely challenging and rewarding place to bring your HR career.

Application Process

Our recruitment process is designed to ensure both that you are right for the role and that the role is right for you. So there are no trick questions and no attempts to catch you out. It's purely a chance for you to show us what you can do, while getting a better feel for what's involved. When you're ready to apply, simply send us your CV and complete our online application form. After that, the process is simple.

Firstly, we'll email you to confirm we've received your application. (If you don't receive this acknowledgement, please phone us on 02476 190 370.) You'll receive a second email after we've reviewed your application. If we think you could be right for the job, we'll invite you to interview but either way, we'll let you know.

If successful, one of our hiring managers, and sometimes someone from HR, will interview you. You'll need to bring your passport or birth certificate and also your National Insurance number as this is now UK immigration policy. We'll be in touch before the interview to give you the full details, including anything else you may need to bring or prepare and who you'll be meeting on the day.

For some roles you may need to complete verbal reasoning tests, numerical tests or personality questionnaires. You'll either be sent an email from SHL, our testing provider, with a link to these, or you'll complete them here at interview.

For some roles, testing forms part of our assessment centres, where you might also be asked to take part in group exercises or prepare a presentation. Of course, we'll let you know well in advance if we're planning to run assessment centres or further exercises.

We may invite you to a second interview. If this is part of the process your recruiting manager will let you know in advance.

We'll call you and let you know if we're offering you the job. Again, we'll be in touch either way and we're always happy to provide feedback to explain our decision and to give you some advice for the future.

If successful, hopefully you'll be pleased with our offer. Let us know you'd like to accept it and we'll send out your contract.
Throughout the process, you can contact us for updates on your application. If you have any special requirements or would like us to make any special arrangements, please let us know in advance so we can make sure we have made the best preparations for you. Simply phone 02476 190 370 or contact us here. Good luck!
