Types of opportunities

Deciding the best route to take can be daunting. We’ve outlined exactly what you can expect from each opportunity.

SSE Apprenticeships

Our Apprenticeships have no minimum entry requirements and typically last three to four years.

SSE Trainee Engineer Programme

Our Trainee Engineers have a unique opportunity to combine work-based learning whilst studying towards an HNC in Electrical Engineering or a Diploma of Higher Education in Engineering, depending on the business area they work in. They undertake various work placements to put newly-learned knowledge into practice, gaining practical, hands-on experience. If you’re applying for a trainee position, you’ll need a minimum of Maths and Science (preferably Physics) at A2 Level (grade A-C) or in Scotland SQA Highers level (grade A-B). Alternatively, we will accept an equivalent qualification in a relevant Engineering subject, at a minimum of HNC level.

Where are the roles based?

Our opportunities span the length and breadth of the UK. We'll release locations for our 2021 intake early next year.
