Closed: Behind the scenes in the Energy sector

Cadent Gas

Available Between

Cadent are the largest gas distribution network in the country however the government has set a target for the UK to be net zero by 2050. That means reducing harmful CO2emissions by 100%. Those emissions come from burning fossil fuels like coal, diesel and fossil gas – to power our industries, run our cars and lorries and heat our homes and businesses. We have to find new ways – greener ways – to do these things.

During this you will get the opportunity to meet graduates, apprentices and other people who work in the organisation who will tell you more about their job. Most importantly they will tell you what it really means to do that job so you can decide if its something you would like to do.

This is a chance to look behind the scenes at the energy sector, to understand what we do now but also about our future. It is a very exciting time for the industry, with cities racing to reach Net Zero first our work is critical. We will share clips from events including those relating to hydrogen but also from those working as Engineers in the field. We will also be providing virtual tours of our training centre and one of our sites which is not accessible to visitors.

Following each presentation there will be break out rooms where you will have an opportunity to have discussions in a smaller group about a particular role or roles you would like to know more about. This could be about the grades you need to apply or the qualification you would get when qualified. What could this job lead to?

We will also be offering advice on applying for apprenticeships, how to make your application stand out and what to expect at an assessment centre.

The event will run from 9.30am to 3pm
