We recognise that some people may need special adjustments to make them more comfortable in an interview environment. For example, if you have a neurological difference such as dyslexia. We’ll work to accommodate any reasonable request, however please let us know in advance.

International Candidates

SSE welcomes applications from all nationalities. Please note that any successful candidate must be able to evidence a valid right to work prior to commencement of employment. If sponsorship is required, we may be able to provide support. Sponsoring international candidates is a complex process involving numerous procedures which must be followed precisely in order to comply with immigration legislation. We look at requests on a case by case basis. Please note the overall decision on visa applications sit with UKVI and not SSE.

Flexible First

Transitioning from student life to your first big career break may feel a little daunting. But we understand the need for work-life balance. So when you join SSE, you’ll benefit from our commitment to flexible working. We call it Flexible First. This could mean a hybrid approach with a blend of working from home and in the office or it could mean flexibility across the working week, where operational requirements allow. One size will not fit all – each employee, manager and team will work together to find the most suitable approach.
