As part of our talented Repair Support team, you’ll keep the nation safe. Partnering with an expert in the field, you’ll quickly learn the right ways to keep the energy flowing by responding to gas escapes, day or night. Working outdoors on gas mains and liaising with the public, you’ll be the friendly face of Cadent in the community. It’s your chance to develop new skills, gain experience and use the specialist equipment needed to build a strong future in engineering.

Our Emergency Response apprentices become the future gas experts. After being fully trained by experienced professionals, you’ll be qualified to act as the first responder to gas escapes across the network. It’s an exciting role, as every day is different and you’ll know that your work has a vital part to play in keeping our customers safe and supplied with the gas they need round the clock. Often working out of hours and alone (with support on hand if you need it), you can look forward to a long, satisfying career.
