Change starts here.

We are running two land & consents programmes this year across two different business areas: SSEN Distribution and SSEN Transmission. Together, our electricity distribution and transmission networks carry electricity to over 3.8 million homes and businesses across the north of Scotland and central southern England. Maintaining and improving this infrastructure is vital for a net zero future.

Across the two year programme, you’ll gain real hands-on experience, build an invaluable network and develop a unique set of skills that will shape your career.

Applications are now closed for our 2023 Land & Consents Graduate Programmes. Sign up for job alerts for regular updates on available opportunities.

Careers in Land & Consents

Land & consents is a critical function across all our businesses. If a project is unable to achieve consented status, it can't move forward so we need talented, ambitious individuals to help us deliver the infrastructure required to achieve our net zero goals.

Once you have completed your graduate development programme, many graduates choose to continue to progress their career at SSE. There are many opportunities for you to pursue within Land & Consents including Consents Advisors, Land Managers, Forestry managers as well as other challenging and fulfilling roles.
