About SSE

We’re a real Living Wage and Fair Tax Mark accredited company and employ 12,000 people across the UK and Ireland.

We have ambitious plans for the future and need more talented and skilled people to join us on our mission to provide the energy needed today while building a better world of energy for tomorrow. We offer diverse career opportunities across the UK and Ireland, agile working and excellent benefits.

Whether you spend your day on a wind farm, engaging directly with customers, supporting our power network infrastructure or in the hustle and bustle of one of our major offices, we like to think life at SSE is pretty good. We take care of our people, our customers and the communities we serve.

We take a strategic approach to creating an inclusive workforce. Our culture encourages everyone to be themselves – no matter what their background is. And no matter what, safety is at the heart of everything we do, and we live by the mantra ‘if it’s not safe, we don’t do it’.

“We believe our employees at SSE have the power to make a change and build a better world of energy for future generations. A world where we believe innovative solutions to climate change requires diverse perspectives, different experiences and new skills to help us reach net zero. That’s why our plans to increase diversity and to create a workplace where the principles of equality, fairness, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of everything we do are so important.” - Rosie Macrae, Inclusion, Education & Employability manager at SSE.

SSE welcome applications from all nationalities. Please note that any successful candidate must be able to evidence a valid right to work prior to commencement of employment. If sponsorship is required, SSE may be able to provide support. Sponsoring international candidates is a complex process involving numerous procedures which must be followed precisely in order to comply with immigration legislation. SSE look at requests on a case by case basis. Please note the overall decision on visa applications sit with UKVI and not SSE

Flexible First

The way we work at SSE - is about harnessing the benefits of flexibility, balanced with the need to connect and work together in the most effective way. For our office workers, this will mean a hybrid approach with a blend of working from home and in the office. For our front line employees, it may mean opportunities for flexibility across the working week, where operational requirements allow. To get it right, we’ll be open-minded, creative and innovative. One size will not fit all – each employee, manager and team will work together to find the most suitable approach. Find out more about SSE’s flexible first programme here
