We are Cadent

Proud to be the nation’s largest owner and operator of gas distribution networks, our 6,000 colleagues, working across four gas networks, keep the energy flowing to around 11 million homes and businesses. That’s half of the UK, we keep safe and warm. 24/7. 365 days a year. And have done for the past 200 years.
And now, we’re looking forward to an exciting future. A future in which we'll exceed targets and produce award-winning innovations across robotics, safety, and bio-gas. One that we’ll play a big part in shaping as we continue to provide emergency response and repair services, conduct asset replacement work and move to the frontier of our industry. A future where we'll keep the nation cooking on gas.
Join us and experience a rewarding career with real purpose and realistic progression that will make you feel genuinely proud about what you do.

How we work

The national gas distribution network isn't just a commercial resource, it’s a national asset that we safeguard for future generations. And, as we own four of the eight regional gas distribution networks in the UK, our duty is to look after and maintain them, keeping the energy constantly flowing through 130,000km of pipeline to around 11 million customers every single day.

These are big numbers. And this is a huge responsibility. Added to which, we also manage the national gas emergency number. So, every single person at Cadent should feel really proud of the fact that they’re helping to smoothly and safely power everyday life in Britain.

They should feel proud to play their part in sourcing secure, affordable and sustainable gas for the future too, as we look ahead to RIIO-2. We’re improving our service to our customers by delivering the right solutions at the right cost, and working to achieve frontier performance by developing a high-performing culture across the business. Yes, targets will be stretching. But, we’re confident that a good plan well-executed will get us to where we need to be.
