National Apprenticeship Week 2018

At SSE, our job is to provide the energy people rely on every day in a reliable, responsible and sustainable way. We’re currently training 500 trainees, spending an average of £80,000 per person to develop their talent. It’s an investment in their future – and ours. Our accredited apprenticeship and trainee programmes offer you the opportunity not only to play a part in achieving our goals, but to grow with us as well. As we look to finding better, more efficient and affordable ways of producing energy, there’s huge scope for our apprentices to make a real contribution to SSE.

We offer a number of different development programmes across our energy businesses and within IT. The programmes offer the opportunity to gain new skills and qualifications and will set our apprentices on the path to a long-term rewarding career, where they’ll have the opportunity to really make a difference.

We're one of the most diverse energy companies in the industry, with a range of different businesses serving different purposes. We have opportunities in mechanical or electrical contracting; multi craft apprentices in our generation and renewables business; as a lines-person, jointer or electrical fitter in our networks business; or supporting the wider business within our IT division.

We have examples from all across SSE of directors and other senior managers who started their careers with SSE in our trainee programmes and worked their way up to the top.
