Our tree cutting teams help to ensure that during bad weather, trees do not fall on power lines. Working in with a highly skilled teams, they clear trees and vegetation in proximity to our overhead transmission and distribution network, ultimately keeping the lights on for our customers.
We're growing our team and on the looking for people who love being outdoors and have experience climbing or working at height. If you have previous experience in tree cutting, forestry or arboriculture that's a bonus, although full training will given.
There is no such thing as a regular day in the office! I am presented with new challenges and new situations every day. I love getting out in nature and I travel all over the area meeting all kinds of interesting people and I get to use all my skills. At the end of the day it’s about helping people out which is very satisfying. I work with a fairly small team who have all become good friends. We all care about doing the best job we can and have as much fun as possible along the way. Working for SSE offers a real sense of stability and an opportunity for growth. There are always new trainings to take part in and different ways to move around the company. I like the feeling of being part of a team that is small and local but also national. I like working for a company with pretty solid ethics- both in terms of how it looks after people and the environment.
I love being able to spend most of my time working outdoors and enjoy the feeling that the work I do improves people’s supply of electricity. I work as part of a team of highly skilled tree surgeons who maintain safe clearances from the trees to the overhead network. It’s a demanding role but we have good fun in the process and there is always plenty of banter! The biggest benefit to me of being part of SSE is the strong sense of job security and a job for life. The work we do is essential and there will always be a need for it. There is also plenty of scope for progression – not something you find with smaller companies. I chose SSE as I knew it would prove to be more of a career along with the added benefits of having a great pension and the chance to save and invest through the share schemes.
