SSE - Engineer Modern Apprenticeship, Fort William & Inverness

We all have different skills here at SSE and that’s what makes us stand out.

We all take pride in a job well done and share the belief that an inclusive culture is key to our success and vision for the future. Above all, 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’. SSE is an equal opportunity employer. We encourage diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We’re committed to ensuring we offer our people a great place to work, with competitive salary, contributory pension plan and benefits package. 

Our Trainee Engineer programme lasts for three years and combines academic study with work based experience. You'll have the opportunity to study towards a HNC in Electrical Engineering for our Distribution and Transmission business areas. 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.
