About the Department

SSE Power Distribution, part of the SSE group, owns and operates two electricity distribution networks and one transmission network, comprising some 123,000 substations and 127,000km of overhead lines and underground cables, distributing electricity to 3.5 million homes and businesses in the North of Scotland and Southern England.

What is the Role?

You'll be involved in the annual Substation plant inspections on SSEN's 11kV network and the Substations landscape maintenance and weed control. The role can be demanding, and you'll be working outdoors in all weathers.

This covers a large area including Andover & Swindon.

What do I need?

To be successful in this role, you'll have excellent customer service skills and a high regard for your own safety and the safety of others in all situations. You'll be a good problem solver with organisational skills.

As a lone worker, you'll need to be self-motivated with previous experience using landscaping machinery. Having relevant on-site experience would also be beneficial. PA1 and PA6 NPTC spraying qualifications would be advantageous but not necessary as all training can be provided.

As there is a requirement to travel in different locations, a full driving license is therefore essential.
