As a trusted business partner that helps SSE lead in a low carbon world, we are proud of our service. Working for SSE IT is all about equipping SSE for now and the future.

What is the Role

Working as part of SSE Group IT Shared applications and collaboration service team, you will gain the opportunity to contribute to a UK implementation of O365. You'll act as a reference point for both the business and IT colleagues alike - providing software review and assessments, M365 stack development, Mobile Application development/release from Microsoft's Power Platform as well as contributing input to the full software development cycle.

You'll act as part of a Centre of Excellence and serve as a technical reference to advise and support Business Unit IT Development and Power users. You'll support initiates aligned with the Microsoft Development Roadmap for O365, ultimately assuring success of all Microsoft and Group developments and their rollout to production. You'll also support the governance model for all Business Units to assure developments are secure, safe and deliver business value.

You'll be responsible for both day-to-day demand of new solutions and build and replace strategic solutions to replace obsolescent group applications running primarily in the O365 ecosystem.

What do I need?

The successful candidate will need to have experience of SharePoint Engineering; experience of Microsoft Power Apps as well as previous experience of Flow development and design. You should be able to demonstrate experience in increasingly diverse or complex technologies.

It would be advantageous to have skills in some of the following; C# experience, ASP .Net, .NET Framework, Azure Automation, PowerShell, SQL and Microsoft/Office Graph. Knowledge of tenant and product level administration would be ideal as well as having previously created O365 Data Entities, connectors, premium instances and other advanced MS technology components.
