Why join SSE?

As one of the UK's largest energy companies, we're always keen to meet great talent who can support SSE's growth in the energy industry and commitment to the UK's green agenda. As the largest generator of energy through renewable sources, a market leader in the electric vehicle (EV) evolution and a responsible employer with a key commitment to keeping the lights on; we can offer you the opportunity to make a real difference for our customers and the communities in which we operate.

What will I do on the programmes?

If you are keen on technology and want to make a difference, you've just found a scheme worth saying yes to. It's not just a technical scheme; more about learning how we use technology to support the business and our customers. Our IT Graduate programme lasts for 2 years and firstly, you'll learn the role of IT in Business, helping to translate real business problems into usable IT solutions. After that, you'll have the opportunity to work in a whole host of different areas such as emerging technology, infrastructure support, system architecture and project management with your final 6 months being in a substantive role which is likely to be your secured position at SSE post Graduate Programme.

What do I need to join?

Ideally, you'll need to be on track to achieve a 2:2 or above in a business or IT-related degree discipline. However, if you can show us your passion for IT and digital environments and you are degree qualified (2:2 or above), we'd definitely be interested in hearing more about you. And while we don't expect you to know everything about IT, we do expect you to have a passion for technology, be a quick and keen learner and someone that is ready to make the most of the opportunities that the IT Graduate scheme provides.
