New website enables quick access to careers information and over 500 jobs every month.

Energy & Utility Skills has today [Tuesday 13 April] launched a new website for Energy & Utilities Jobs, the platform dedicated to raising awareness of career opportunities in our sector. The site reflects our ever-evolving industries, offering the UK public insights into career paths including apprenticeships, graduate programmes and professional roles – plus a gateway to current live roles.

The team behind the project analysed user data from the previous Energy & Utilities Jobs site to design a new, improved experience. The new site is even more accessible and user-friendly, bringing to life the stories behind the people making a difference in the energy and utilities sector.

With 3 out of 4 visits to Energy & Utilities Jobs coming from mobile devices and tablets, the new site goes beyond just being mobile compatible and becomes mobile focussed. Each individual story, career path, company profile and sector summary is presented in an engaging format, tailored to the way our audiences choose to view the site.

The new site responds not only to the ever-changing sector, but to the wider changes in the UK labour market. A year ago, the market was very tight. Since then, the impact of COVID-19 has resulted in higher unemployment rates, now at 5%, and has caused redundancies to reach a record high during September-November 2020. Viewing active job listings on the site for those looking for a new role has never been easier. The new website keeps it simple and reduces the number of clicks needed to access current roles.

Energy & Utilities Jobs is a collaboration of over 15 leading organisations, all working to support the Energy & Utilities Skills Partnership’s Workforce Renewal and Skills Strategy 2020-2025. Two of the key priorities of this strategy are building recognition of our sector among the UK public and inspiring the next generation to a career within energy and utilities. This new website works even harder to reach and engage groups of people that are currently underrepresented in our sector, including women, people from a Black, Asian or other minority ethnic background, people with a disability, and those aged 16-24. As a sector, we are making progress in becoming more diverse and inclusive, but there is more to do.
