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’re invested in enabling our people reach their full potential. We provide support, experience and opportunities to help our people build the career they want.
“I am lucky to work in SSE Renewables and, in particular, the Operations side of the business where we get to see the islands in all their glory. From Shetland to Cork and everywhere in-between. I have a commercial background, a Quantity surveyor to trade and my first 4 roles in SSE were commercial with a close alignment to Quantity Surveying. The role I am in now as Head of Onshore Wind Operations and Maintenance was a great personal achievement as at the time, I was the first non-engineering background to be appointed Head of Business for an Operational business. It’s a great example of the progressive nature of SSE as an employer and the opportunity that is out there for everyone if you back yourself.
SSE is a fantastic place to develop, I have had a lot of opportunities both on the job and academically that have really broadened my skills and mindset. There is a wealth of options but a couple of standouts for me personally were being sponsored through a Business Degree and also a structured Career development plan via HULT executive education at Ashridge College.”
SSE is underpinned by a set of core values designed to guide decisions and actions in SSE known as the SSESET.
