Because your world matters

At SSE, over 12,000 people give their best every day to build a better world of energy. Our flexible benefits package is our way of saying thanks. It’s designed to support the important things in life, like family commitments and finances, wellbeing, and work / life balance. Take a look at some of the highlights.

Family and returning to work

We know that balancing your career and family responsibilities can be challenging. That’s why we’re committed to being family-friendly and supporting all employees, whatever their gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, or family status.

As well as empowering everyone to work flexibly, we support our people throughout the journey to becoming a parent and beyond. Our family entitlements include:

  • 21 weeks’ Maternity or Adoption Leave at full pay for new parents
  • 2 weeks’ Paternity Leave at full pay plus a further 7 weeks of Partner’s Leave, 3 at full pay and 4 at half pay
  • Up to 2 weeks leave at full pay in every 12-month period for employees undergoing assisted fertility treatment
  • Gradual return for new parents returning from Maternity or Adoption Leave, who can work 80% of their contractual hours for 100% pay and benefits for up to 6 months
  • Paid time off for antenatal, adoption and fostering appointments

Holidays and flexible working

No matter what level you’re at when you join us, you’ll enjoy 34 days of annual leave per year, including public holidays. You can buy up to 10 extra days every year if you choose to, giving you even more flexibility.

We also support flexible working across our business, so you can work with your manager to find a routine that fits your individual life circumstances. And because we know things don’t always go to plan, we offer emergency day passes for those times when life throws you a curveball.

Money and financial planning

To protect your financial future, we make a generous pension contribution on your behalf. You can also buy shares in SSE at a discounted rate, giving you the option to share in our success.

Everyone gets free access to an award-winning third-party provider of financial education. Plus, you’ll enjoy a wide range of discounts in your favourite shops, and technology loans to help with any big digital purchases.

Health and wellbeing

We genuinely care about each other at SSE and make our people’s wellbeing a priority. Our employee assistance programme offers free and confidential counselling 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our people can also access discounted private healthcare from Bupa.

And because we know that SSE people care about the communities they serve, we offer everyone a paid day away from their usual job to volunteer as part of the SSE Volunteering Programme.

Travel and transport

We all have a part to play in the journey to net zero. That’s why SSE provides benefits that make it easier for our employees to make positive travel choices. We offer an interest-free salary advance to cover public transport season tickets. We’re also a proud member of the Cycle to Work scheme.
