Recruitment process

Our aim is to have the right people in the right place at the right time, so our recruitment process is designed to select the best people for the roles, and to identify those who are most likely to complete the programme successfully.

Positions for Trainee Engineers are only available at a selection of our sites and candidates will enhance their chance of success if they’re prepared to relocate should the necessity arise.

Our selection process involves an application form, on-line assessments and an assessment centre to determine if you have the appropriate skills and abilities to be an SSE Trainee Engineer. Due to the large numbers of candidates sitting assessments we may hold assessment centres regionally. You might have to travel to participate, however our team will be on hand to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
