Full Job Description

As a Project Management Graduate joining SSEN Transmission, you will follow a specialist pathway. Specialists will work with experts in their specialism, gaining exposure within a business area for the duration of their graduate programme with the aim of providing experience that will lead to a substantive post.

Our graduates work collaboratively in a variety of contexts, while also taking ownership of their role by working under their own direction to drive action forward. A key principle of the graduate programme is continuous professional development and SSE has built a learning culture where value is placed on learnings that go beyond the immediate task. Throughout the programme, you will have the support of our Graduate Programme Manager and a business mentor, who will provide guidance and support to enable you to reach your full potential.

At SSE, we are currently working on several high-profile projects which are ensuring we can provide sustainable and reliable energy to all. To achieve our Net Zero ambitions, we are seeking graduates who are eager to gain the knowledge and experience needed to work towards a Project Manager role. You will need the drive to become a project management professional ultimately leading on major infrastructure projects.

You could be working with our engineers on the selection of appropriate technologies to meet project requirements, coordination of key surveys & studies, coordinating initial design works, acquisition of land rights & wayleaves and submission of Planning Applications. Or you could be working with our business development teams, focusing on new innovations and projects.

Building and maintaining productive and enduring relationships with Contractors, Stakeholders, Communities & the public to support sustainable delivery of projects is key to this role so you will need to be a strong communicator with great interpersonal skills.

We have Project Management positions based across Scotland, inclusive of Inverness, Glasgow, Perth, Aberdeen, Argyll. Graduates will add value to our Offshore and Onshore Delivery teams in a specialist role. SSEN Transmission are currently working on a number of high-profile transmission projects which are ensuring our transmission network is able to transmit clean renewable energy whilst being safe, efficient, and structurally sound, therefore providing sustainable and reliable energy to all.

At SSE we're proud to celebrate difference. We all have different skills, experience and backgrounds and we strive to have a friendly and inclusive culture where you can be yourself. Safety is at the heart of everything we do at SSE and we live by the mantra 'if it's not safe, we don't do it'. You should show alignment with our core values and have a genuine passion and interest in the energy sector.

Youll have a minimum of a 2:2 in Engineering, Project Management, or other STEM related degree discipline.

As the organisations grows and becomes more international, our graduates need to be highly flexible in order to embrace the changes and keep up with the fast-paced evolution of the business. Our graduates are agile in their thinking and seek to address knowledge gaps. You should be comfortable working to and setting stretching individual targets and using your own initiative to overcome challenges., Please note that any successful candidate must be able to evidence a valid right to work prior to commencement of employment.
