FairHeat Graduate Scheme

The heat network sector is growing. The decarbonisation of heat is increasingly pivotal to tackling climate change and meeting the demanding but essential targets for reaching Zero Carbon in the UK by 2050.

At FairHeat, we are committed to ensuring that the industry has the future skills and talent it needs to play its part in this vital challenge.

This is why we have developed our graduate scheme to identify and nurture young engineering talent and create opportunities for young people to grow and thrive in our sector.

Our primary goal is simple but ambitious:

To inspire and develop engineers that will become the future leaders of the industry.

If you have graduated with an engineering degree, have a passion for sustainability and want to find out more about a career in the heat network sector, then we want to hear from you!

About the scheme

Our graduate scheme has been developed to give you the technical skills, knowledge and experience in all aspects of heat network development.

Over two years, you’ll do six-month placements across the full lifecycle of a heat network:

  • New Build: Design
  • New Build: Commissioning
  • Operations: Performance Improvement
  • Operations: Performance Maintenance

Each placement requires a mix of practical onsite work and office-based work to ensure you gain a complete understanding of how heat networks operate.

The programme also includes delivering a series of special projects that focus on areas of business improvement or technical innovation. This gives you the opportunity to bring the knowledge and skills you’ve developed into a project that you can own and drive within the business.


Professional development

Our scheme also includes a wide range of professional development opportunities to ensure you remain at the forefront of developments in the sector.

This includes completing the Prince 2 Project Management qualification, a globally recognised qualification in the field of project management.

We also strongly encourage and actively support professional accreditation and Chartership.
