My name is Rowanne Simpson, I joined the Technology Graduate Scheme at SSE in September 2020 and I am based in Perth.
I studied MSci Mathematics at Lancaster University (2016-2020).
It was on a summer internship that I developed an interest in technology however I considered a wide range of sectors when applying for a technology graduate scheme. I ultimately chose SSE because it is acknowledged as a fair and inclusive employer, something that I value highly and I wanted to be a part of SSEs journey in reaching a low carbon future. The Technology Graduate Scheme offers the opportunity to move across various business units, providing exposure to various aspects of the energy industry while building on experience in different IT roles.
The recruitment process has several stages and throughout the process, I felt supported. I would suggest do your research via the SSE Gradcracker Hub if you are new to the energy industry as there is a lot of information there. Practice online tests until you feel comfortable with them and take your time and prepare for each stage.
Yes, I required extra time during the online tests and the group exercise at the assessment centre.
