Calling All Graduates

We are delighted to announce the 2016 Graduate Recruitment Scheme is now open and we will be holding graduate days at both our London and Blackburn headquarters.

Vital Energi are responsible for designing, delivering, operating and maintaining some of the largest, most exciting low-carbon energy solutions in the UK and we are looking for talented and enthusiastic graduates who want to be involved in revolutionising the UK’s decentralised energy infrastructure.

Each year we recruit exceptional candidates and then enrol them on our in-house graduate programme to ensure they get the support they need to reach their full potential.  We recently caught up with three of this year’s graduates to find out how their first year at Vital Energi is going:

“My first project was Scarborough & Bridlington Hospitals where I was placed next to the site manager, assisting him and learning about steam and electrical installations. After the Christmas break I was in charge of the site, in order to achieve practical completion, something that was achieved earlier this month.” 

Alex Anagnostopoulos Graduate Engineer (Projects) Based On-site
