About the Department

Transmission are part of the SSE Group and operate under licence as Scottish Hydro Electric (SHE) Transmission plc, responsible for the transmission of electricity in the North of Scotland. We own and maintain the 132kV, 275kV and 400kV electricity transmission network in our licence area. Our network comprises of electricity substations, underground cables, subsea cables and overhead wooden poles and steel towers and it extends over a quarter of the UK land mass across some of its most challenging terrain.

Over the next 5 - 6 years Scottish Hydro Electric (SHE) Transmission plc will be developing and delivering some of the largest and most exciting infrastructure projects in Scotland and there is an opportunity for you to be involved. With a business plan to deliver over £2bn of investments between 2021 and 2026 there has never been a more exciting time to join us.

We have seen unprecedented growth in renewable generation in the North of Scotland over the last decade which has triggered significant investment in growing and improving our transmission network. As we now approach a new price control period, we are planning for a continued level of growth to accommodate both the renewable energy sector and the maintenance and phased replacement of some ageing assets within the existing network.

What is the Role?

The Transmission team is responsible for delivering projects across the North of Scotland. We are looking for experienced and capable Site Construction Managers to successfully lead in the safe delivery of the projects on time, within budget and to the required quality standards.

The projects will involve the construction of High Voltage (132kV and above) infrastructure and the successful candidates will be responsible for the delivery of significant and major projects and must therefore be experienced in overseeing all aspects of the civils, building, M&E fit out (in particular the installation of GIS plant and equipment), electrical and cabling works in the delivery of large complex projects.

- Responsible for ensuring site activities comply with planning consents and SHE legislation, you will liaise with SSE staff and contractors, helping to maximise project team effort.

- As a great communicator, you will develop effective relationships with contractors, suppliers, stakeholders and the community.

- You will provide support to the Project Manager by providing efficient and accurate reports, represent the Project Manager at site meetings and take the lead coordinating role in aspects of the project site delivery including enabling activities, liaison with 3rd parties, commissioning and Operations interfaces.

For this role, experience in the construction and delivery of HVAC (132kV and above) electricity infrastructure is preferred.

What do I need?

The HV Site Construction Manager must have experience of large HV electricity infrastructure projects to be considered for this role. You should have demonstrable experience and knowledge of Health and Safety legislation practices including CDM regulations. Furthermore, Quality Management experience is essential, as you will be proactively monitoring the quality of the site works and application of the control processes to ensure "right first time".

A history of reporting, management and personal responsibility in the delivery of large capital projects is a must. It is also important to have a background in all aspects of major civils and industrial buildings construction. Conflict resolution and the planning of site activities is an essential part of this role and therefore a background in this is essential.

Good organisational and communication skills and having the confidence to challenge others in open discussion will also stand you in good stead.
