Inspiring the Engineers of Tomorrow

We have a proud history of training apprentices and developing the next generation of engineers – and that means we also work hard to promote careers in engineering and inspire the engineers of tomorrow. Our industry is facing a skills shortage and research shows that many young people aged 11 to 19 don’t know much about what engineers do or the many career opportunities it provides - and we want to change that.

A track record delivering rail projects

​Bringing buildings and infrastructure to life is central to the NG Bailey vision and our long history in the rail sector has seen us improving the travelling experience for rail users at some of the busiest stations in the UK.

A step forward in our green journey

Operating responsibly has always been a priority for us, whether it is investing in our people, training apprentices or minimising our impact on the environment.

Training Apprentices Since 1934

This week is National Apprenticeship Week and we’ll be celebrating the achievements of some of our rising stars.

When Nathan went to No.10

Remembering our expansion north of the border

​As Scotland celebrates Burns Night, we’re looking back to the 1970s and 80s when NG Bailey first expanded operations into Scotland.

The fashion of PPE

Bright yellow and orange may not be everyone’s favourite fashion choice, but they are the go-to colours for many of our colleagues.

It's 2021 – our centenary year!

NG Bailey was founded in a basement in Leeds in 1921 with 12 employees carrying out domestic electrical installations. Today, we are still family-owned but have grown to become one of the UK’s leading independent engineering and services businesses working across numerous infrastructure sectors.
