Relocate to the island of Guernsey
Make 2022 the year that you take the next step in your career, help tackle climate change and only have a ten-minute commute.
We need network design engineers to lead the network re-design needed to enable Guernsey’s decarbonisation and journey to the electric future.
We are an energy company with a difference – we do it all. We generate energy, import energy from a subsea cable, manage the network and supply all the islands customers – and you will be central to our plans of delivering a new network
This opportunity would suit experienced engineers or those with the ambition and potential to take on the challenge.
We offer a relocation package, flexible working, good holiday, pension, private healthcare and a bonus scheme.
Plus, what we can’t put a price on, are the joys of island life. It’s a great place to raise a family, with excellent restaurants, 30% more sunshine that the UK, lower taxes and a higher quality of life. Sound good to you?

We’re powering life, today and tomorrow.
Right now, energy is evolving at such a rapid pace and Guernsey Electricity plays an integral part.
Our vision is to be First Choice for Energy. That means being at the forefront, leading the future energy transition, ensuring we combat Climate change and play our part in creating a sustainable future.
We believe in a sustainable future for generations to come. We want to provide a secure, sustainable, reliable electricity service for the island which is affordable and minimises impact on the environment.
It’s not just about transitioning away from fossil fuels and the important role electricity will play in the decarbonisation of transport and heat. New technology, particularly digital, will enable the world to use energy in new ways every day and we play a large part in this.
Working with us
From engineers to accountants, retail assistants to cleaners, jointers to IT technicians and marketeers to project managers, we’re all guardians of Guernsey’s electricity and leading the energy transition.
Our power station isn’t only responsible for generating to top up the imported electricity. It is a central control centre for our Island’s network, and it carefully manages the supply from imported electricity via our subsea cable, renewable energy generated on our island through our community solar panels and the electricity we generate at the power station.
Our network then distributes this electricity across the Island, ensuring sustainable and reliable power is reaching our customers and community to power our kettles to phone chargers and TVs to streetlights. We are responsible for maintaining the vast and complex network.
We deliver domestic and commercial electrical services as well as innovative energy solutions. We’ll install anything from the installation of a socket in your home to air source heat pumps, and underfloor heating to vehicle charging points. We’re on a journey helping more and more customers switch to electric heating, leading the energy transition.
We aim to energise our employees by placing our core values at the heart of what we do. We strive to create a culture where our employees feel empowered, contributing to the success of our organisation, making Guernsey Electricity a great place to work.
Our T.R.U.S.T values exemplify this. They stand for Together, Responsibility, Understanding, Simplicity and Transparency.
Powering our community
Leading the energy transition, there are a lot of exciting projects we are working on that you will be part of...
The future is electric. As we’re planning for the Island’s future needs, we’re also proactively strategically reviewing and developing our future for this network, whether it’s a subsea cable or more on island renewables.
A direct connection to France
This will enable us to meet all our islands current and future needs from low carbon electricity and the power station will be used for emergencies only.
20MW of local PV
We believe that everyone on Guernsey should be able to use and benefit from renewable electricity and have some of the largest community scale solar arrays installed in the Channel Islands which feed renewable electricity into the grid.
Power to the People
To support our local community and spread the positive energy wider, we have a ‘Power to the people’ initiative to provide funding or our time and skills to support local projects, initiatives or charities that benefit the environment and local community.
For helping us to look after the Island’s energy for future generations, we offer a generous and unique benefits package.
Our benefits package is designed to look after our employees and help them enjoy island life flexibly, progress in their careers, be recognised for their efforts and be paid fairly.
