2017

"It's extremely focused on inclusiveness and diversity, making it a friendly and welcoming company to work for."
Graduate, Crawley
"It's a very diverse organisation."
Graduate, Crawley
"The company is very committed to diversity and makes a great effort to ensure that all needs are catered for. Diversity (and inclusiveness) is one of the company's values and is a key focus point for the senior management."
Graduate, London
"The company treats everyone equally and does not create special rules for anyone. However, the company provides support for everyone who has special needs."
Entry level, London
"It's male dominated but that's an engineering issue more than a UKPN one. Ethnicity is diverse and we accommodate well for disabilities."
Graduate, London & Crawley
"There is a good commitment to diversity and I believe that there is a dedicated team for this. There is diversity and inclusiveness training for all new staff. However, there are no specific programmes for minorities to participate in (ie there is no women's leadership network, as you may find in other companies)."
Graduate, London

2014

"There is a dedicated diversity team. 'Diversity and Inclusiveness' is one of the company's six values. Maternity and paternity leave are taken. On the engineering and operations side it is very male dominated, however, recently there was a 'Women in Engineering Day' which was supported by the company."
Graduate, Bury St Edmunds
"The company has many initiatives to promote diversity within the workplace. For example the UK Power Networks Women's Network."
Graduate, London
"In the operational/field based departments there is little diversity due to legacy of the electricity board and focus on trade related roles which historically have been male-dominated. Across the remainder of the business I would say there is quite a lot of diversity."
Graduate, London
