The opportunity

This year we are delighted to offer graduate opportunities for those with engineering disciplines across the UK and Ireland. Due to the size and diversity of SSE, we can offer you a structured and highly challenging development programme where you'll have the support of the Graduate Programme Manager and a business mentor to assist you in reaching your full potential. The programme will support your career development into a permanent role within SSE that reflects your experience, qualifications and passion for the energy sector.

Depending on the programme you choose, you could be involved in a broad and diverse range of exciting projects across the UK and/or Ireland. All roles are likely to involve some travel to other SSE sites to gain practical exposure to a wide range of business areas, therefore a full UK driving license would be an advantage but is not essential.

Different parts of the business and locations across the UK and Ireland offer an overview of what drives us at SSE - from award-winning customer service, generating, transmitting and distributing green energy to giving back to the community.

What will I do on the programme?

Working as part of our multi-disciplined engineering teams, we have a range of opportunities for engineering graduates to support projects across our Transmission business. We're at the forefront of some really high profile projects which are ensuring our transmission network is structurally sound, operating safely and efficiently and providing sustainable and reliable energy to all. You could be working on projects similar to the development, installation and commissioning of the new Caithness-Moray HVDC link, the reinforcement of HV transmission substations, and the development of new HVDC subsea links - connecting some of the remotest parts of Scotland and it s Islands to the mainland Transmission system for the first time.

What do I need to join?

For this programmes, you'll ideally have a minimum of a 2:2 BEng in either Electrical, Electronics, Mechanical, Civil, or Energy-related degree.

We'd love you to have practical work or project experience that reflects your passion for engineering, as well as demonstrable experience of working in a team. You'll also be comfortable working to and setting stretching individual targets and using your own initiative to overcome challenges.

You should have an interest in the energy sector, and show alignment with SSE's core values.
