SSE Insight - Perth, Ferrybridge & Keadby

During our time with SSE, we visited three of their locations: Perth, Ferrybridge and Keadby. To find out what we got up to, click the tabs below!

We started our journey with SSE at their training centre in Perth. During our visit, we spoke to a range of people with very different experiences – from graduates on their first day, to employees who have been with the company for seven or eight years.

And while SSE’s approach is changing – from burning fossil fuels to burning landfill waste – the friendliness of the people there remains consistent across the board. Because of this, we think that graduates would settle right in at SSE.

We often visit our advertisers, spending a full day touring their facilities, speaking to their graduates/interns and working with their recruiters on content for their Company Hubs.

We can get a real ‘insight’ into their working environment, their culture and the things they are working on. We also learn about their recruitment processes and the things each company looks for in their ideal candidates.

It’s useful stuff for you to know if you’re considering applying to them – so we thought we’d share it!
