Trainee Engineer Programme 2019 Salary -   circa £18,000 with yearly increase plus excellent company benefits Base Location - Orkney Are you thinking about University but you're worried about tuition fees and student loans? Our Trainee Engineer programme provides an opportunity for you to earn a salary at the same time as learning. The programme lasts for three years and combines academic study with work based experience. Working within our Energy Networks you'll have the opportunity to study towards a HNC in Electrical Engineering.  All of our Trainee Engineers do spend some time staying away from home at college or university. This is usually for 2-3 weeks blocks once per term. When not studying, you’ll spend the balance of your time on placements which may include working in the field, at Power Stations and Control Rooms or working alongside experienced SSE crafts people and engineers. By the time you reach the third year of the programme you'll be given increased responsibility in managing small jobs, including technical aspects, safety management and the supervision of crafts people or contractors. On completion of your programme you will be qualified to work as a Maintenance Engineer, Field Network Engineer, Project Design Engineer, Systems Planning Engineer or an Operational Control Engineer. This Programme requires you to be highly organised and self-driven with the ability to manage your time well. You should be flexible in your approach to work to maximise your chances of success, and you should be happy working alone or as part of a team. You'll be comfortable to spend some time living away from home whilst attending college or on placements across SSE. You should have, or be on target to achieve, Maths and Science (preferably Physics) qualifications at A2 Level (A-C) or SQA Higher level (A-B), as well as English at GCSE (4 - 9) or National 5 (Scotland). We are happy to accept applications from candidates with equivalent level engineering / technical qualifications. Closing date for applications is 6th July 2019. Successful candidates will start in September 2019 and will be subject to our verification and vetting process which includes a qualification and basic criminal record check along with drug and alcohol testing.

Opportunities to Retrain/Reskill – 2019 Programmes Salary: Circa £ 19,191 with a yearly increase and company benefits  Locations: Orkney Thinking about a new challenge or perhaps a change in career? Maybe you enjoy fixing things or prefer being outdoors and doing hands-on practical work? Or perhaps you are looking for an opportunity to learn a new skill?  If so, read on… About the Programme Our carefully designed Craft Programmes will give you everything you need to progress your career at SSE as far as you want to go.  We can offer you the chance to earn a great salary whilst you learn new skills, gain valuable work experience and obtain industry-recognised qualifications.  The programme can take up to 4 years to complete and is centred on work-based learning, formal education and training linked directly to the job.  By the end of the programme you'll have an accreditation that will offer you the opportunity to build a rewarding and successful career in the energy sector with one of the largest suppliers in the UK and Ireland.  Sustainability underpins everything we do so we believe in making the most of our most valuable assets - our people - and supporting them to be their best. Throughout the programme, you’ll be well supported with a SSE dedicated manager and mentor, and will work alongside our experienced colleagues to quickly build up your experience on the job.  During your time at college, you’ll have support from college tutors and in some cases may be able to accelerate your learning at a faster pace than our other programmes.  The majority of our learners attend college on a block release arrangement for several weeks at any one time; this will mean you may have to live away from home for short periods of time. What do I need? First and foremost is a passion for SSE, an appreciation of our core values, and the desire to take on a new challenge.  You should also bring with you experience of working in a practical / hands on environment, a good level of dexterity and understanding of the importance of safety in a work-based setting. You should enjoy working outdoors and be prepared to work in all weather conditions. In terms of qualifications, we’d love you to have GCSE (or equivalent) level C in Maths and English and a Science / Engineering / Technical subject.  You may have equivalent technical qualifications or other work-based qualifications which are not essential but would be advantageous, and may help you progress more quickly through the programme.  Due to the locations of the roles on offer, a full driving license is essential. Application closing date: Sunday, 6th July 2019.  Successful candidates will start in  September 2019 and will be subject to our verification and vetting process which includes a qualification and basic criminal record check along with drug and alcohol testing.
