Although women represent at least 50% of the UK workforce, they are severely under- represented in most trade professions – many of which are facing huge skills gap shortages..

Recent figures indicate that less than one in every thousand electrical contractors is female.

With its ‘Jobs for the Girls’ campaign NICEIC aim to highlight the exciting opportunities available to females within the electrical industry and dispel the myth that trade professions are a viable career path for men only. Like us NICEIC wants an industry built on skills and qualifications while ensuring there is a level playing field for all who wish to operate within it.

Who We Are PDF Print E-mail

Athena Electrical Ltd is a women owned, independent company, offering a wide range of electrical and environmental services.

Based in North London, and with a proven track record in the building industry, we believe that value for money and the highest safety standards are as important as quality workmanship and outstanding customer service.

Established in 1994 as a traditional electrical contracting company, our concern about the environment and our interest in sustainability has led us to extend our offering to include energy assessments and advice, and in 2010 we became MCS Accredited Solar PV Installers. We are dedicated to ensuring that a renewable energy future isn’t just a possibility, but a reality.

Safety First

Since the introduction of Part P (Electrical Safety in Dwellings) to the Building Regulations in 2005, it has been a legal requirement that some alterations to the electrical installation of your home are notified to Building Control.

If you are thinking of replacing your consumer unit, installing an extra socket in the kitchen, recessed lighting in your bathroom or having garden lights, it is very important that the work is carried out by a reputable and accredited company (which we are), and that the work is tested and certificated. Please don’t attempt to carry out any electrical repairs or installations yourself, or get in the ‘Handyman’. Poorly executed electrical work can damage property and put lives at risk and may be against the law.


Sustainability and the Future

At Athena Electrical, we aim to bring an ethical and sustainable approach to every aspect of our business. We not only employ skilled craftsmen and women from north London, but also source our materials, equipment and supplies from local businesses, with whom we have developed trusted business relationships over the years.

We also endeavour to enhance the value and longevity of the properties on which we work, through well-planned and executed electrical installations, as well as advising and implementing energy saving measures and renewable energy installations.

The added benefit for our customers, is that they save money long term, whilst helping to reduce the overall output of carbon emissions.


Customer Service

Quality workmanship and excellent customer service shouldn’t cost the earth!

That’s why we provide high performance equipment at competitive prices and a personalised and reliable service from qualified technicians – no hard sales – just high quality goods and value for money.

Before we carry out any installation work in your home, we will check that your existing mains and earthing facilities are suitable to accommodate the new work.
