Our Business 

ScottishPower is part of the Iberdrola Group, one of the world’s largest integrated utility companies and world leader in wind energy. Our focus is on wind energy, smart grids and driving the change to a cleaner, electric future. We’re proud to say we produce 100% green electricity and are well on our way to our ultimate journey to Net Zero.  

We're investing over £1.4 billion in the UK - every year - for the next 5 years. Working on cutting edge innovation projects, we’re creating a smarter, cleaner and more efficient network, as well as building and maintaining windfarms, as we work towards Net Zero.  And, with contributions of £40m to charitable causes during the last 5 years, we’re investing in our communities as well to create a better future, quicker, for everyone.  

From the big to the small, that’s ScottishPower

At ScottishPower, we think less about what energy is and more about what it can do for you in the real world. Because our responsibility is to you the customer. From the big to the small.

What opportunities do we have on offer for you? 

Increasing the efficiency of our networks is crucial to our Net Zero ambition. Without the transition to cleaner and smarter technology, meeting this goal will be impossible. So, our Power Systems Analysis and Design graduates will play a vital role, carrying out in-depth analysis of the performance of all aspects of our network to design the network of the future. We’re on an exhilarating journey of continuous improvement and we’re looking for graduates who’re desperate to make our world a better place. 

We’ve got an array of exciting projects on our grid and you’ll be immersed right from the start. With projects at various stages of the project life cycle, you’ll gain invaluable experience while making a real-world difference to our customers, communities, and stakeholders. And, with commitments to achieve Net Zero as early as 2030, innovation is key, so there’s never been a better time to join us putting your innovation skills to use. 

We want to hear from you NOW if you have, or expect to achieve, an Honours Degree (or equivalent) at a minimum of 2:2 in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Power Systems or similar. 

Why choose ScottishPower? 

There’s never been a more exciting time to join us, and we need great people like you to help us succeed on our journey to Net Zero! During your time on the graduate programme, you’ll face new challenges and experience a diverse range of opportunities. You might be working in different areas of the business or focusing on your chosen specialism. Either way, you’ll be creating a network of colleagues and fellow graduates that’ll support your growth and development throughout your career.

Our programme is designed to bring out the best in you, helping you find the career path that’s right for you.
