National Grid is offering an innovative Leadership Development Program for MBA (or similar degree) graduates. The Leadership Development Program (LDP) is designed to develop high-potential leaders with diverse backgrounds who can lead our organization through the challenges of the coming years. LDP participants complete rotations in different areas of the company and transition from the program well-equipped to enter permanent leadership roles. The program accelerates participants’ professional development through expanding internal networks, addressing key challenges facing the company, and encouraging strategic thinking. Participants leverage their rotation experiences and leadership abilities to create lasting impact.
As an LDP participant, you’ll begin with a four-week induction during which you will be exposed to all aspects of National Grid’s business operations and learn about new initiatives. Following induction, you will complete 3-5 rotations that are ~6 months each in different areas of the company. Examples of past rotations include: Customer Experience, US Strategy Development, Future of Heat, Grid Modernization, Clean Energy Development, National Grid Ventures (NGV) and National Grid Partners (NGP). After completion of the program, you’ll move into a direct management, program management, or strategy development role based on your interests and the organization’s needs.
Additionally, we offer full-time summer internship experiences for students continuing their education in the fall. Our Gridterns work from May/June through August. Gridterns are provided with project based work experiences by their hiring department and have the ability to learn more about our business through an interactive Orientation session, monthly lunch & learn sessions, field/site visits and volunteer opportunities. Gridterns acquire critical insight into our company and our industry, and develop valuable networking connections, which will help prepare them for future career opportunities.
