The gas business remains part of the National Grid Group until the sale is completed, and we expect it to become a separate company in the second half of 2022. This means we are currently in a period of both opportunity and uncertainty. While nobody knows exactly what things will look like in a years time, those who join the business now will have a unique opportunity to shape the future of Gas Transmission in the UK. The closing date is Sunday 9th October 2022, although in some cases I ll close the ad early, so don t delay. I ll respond to every single application.
