Women in Engineering

Sara Maitland

Trainee Engineer in E&I (Electrical and Instrumentation), set her sights on a career in engineering from an early age. She said: “Ever since an electronics class at secondary school I’ve been interested in engineering. I realised this career path was within my reach and was something I’d enjoy. I’ve been to college, as well as doing an IT and telecoms apprenticeship before joining SGN.”

Chris Holford

Our Aspiring team manager and network engineer programme runs alongside your normal day job and provides you with a structured mix of formal training, on-the-job training and experience, coaching, and possible academic study. Aspiring managers and engineering trainees are vital to the development of our business creating a group of people capable of stepping straight into future leadership opportunities.

Chris Holford, Deputy Team Manager, began his career as a Poole depot GN01 before being promoted to Replacement Team Leader. Having recently completed the Aspiring Team Manager Programme, Chris is now a Repair Manager at Poole depot. Chris said: “The programme is great as it is structured to the individual’s specific needs. The programme has given me a great insight to the make-up and history of gas as a whole, and where it comes from. It has developed my understanding of the how SGN adheres to regulations, legislation, processes of safety to ensure the wellbeing of our staff, which is imperative when being a team manager.”


There are more opportunities than ever to give back to our communities and inspire the next generation. We work with Girlguiding, Outward Bound and Solutions for the Planet helping young people gain valuable life skills, and build their self-motivation, self-esteem and confidence.

Mentoring is a great way to develop leadership and coaching skills, creative thinking and even take on challenges in the great outdoors.
