About the Department

SSE Human Resources is made up of several operational and specialist teams who strive to help the business to design, develop and deliver their people strategies. We partner with the business to provide expert advice on all people matters, enabling them to get the best out of their teams and equip them to meet the changing demands of our business now, and in the future.

The Resourcing Team manages SSE's recruitment in the UK and Ireland which includes everything up to Executive Committee level and covers specialist roles, volume campaigns and our early careers programmes. We work collaboratively with the business to help fulfil their recruitment requirements with the best talent in the timeliest and most cost effective way, whilst at the same time ensuring a first-class candidate experience.

What is the Role?

In this role, you'll be responsible for recruiting a variety of roles across our SSEN business, which is responsible for keeping the lights on. Our SSEN teams are at the front line of our Network and work in all weathers to ensure our customers are never without power.

Working collaboratively with the business, you'll help them define and hire both technical engineering and operation roles: from Tree Cutters to Subsea Engineers; from Cable Jointers to Network Designers, therefore experience in recruiting within a similar industry would be an advantage. We operate as true resourcing partners, therefore you'll need to use your credibility and experience to develop close relationships with key stakeholders ensuring they are engaged and involved in their recruitment activity, end-to-end.

You'll take accountability for the full recruitment process which includes taking briefings from hiring managers to developing the job adverts, identifying the most appropriate sourcing route from a range of creative and cost-effective media channels. You'll also manage the offer process.

You'll be familiar with a range of sourcing tools, from job boards and social media to LinkedIn, and where appropriate using specialist publications and working alongside recruitment agencies. You'll be confident in your ability to screen, long-list and assess candidates and where appropriate provide insight and challenge to the business.

Regardless of the role type, you'll be responsible for maintaining a high level of Hiring Manager and Candidate satisfaction, ensuring that all parties benefit from a fair, transparent and inclusive recruitment experience.

What do I need?

We have a great team and are looking to add to it with a positive team player, who sets high personal standards whilst working collaboratively and flexibly across the team. It is essential that you have recruitment experience, and a background within in-house, RPO and/or more technical recruiting would be preferable. You must be able to use Microsoft programmes (Word, Excel and PowerPoint), social media, and be eager to learn new systems. You will be metrics focused and will have experience in creating recruitment data for the business and wider HR team.

As an experienced recruiter, you will have excellent communication skills and be able to cope with a demanding workload by prioritising effectively and remaining good-humoured. You will be able to flex your style according to the level of role being recruited, the requirements of the hiring managers and your workload. You will be equally happy powering through your vacancies and taking time out to brainstorm innovative sourcing solutions. Most importantly, you will take pride in your achievements and the level of service you provide including your performance against key performance indicators.
