To reach net zero by 2050, we're looking for candidates who can bring big ideas, new skills and innovative thinking to help us build a world that's more sustainable and inclusive for you, your family, the community you live in and for generations to come.
Our summer placements offer you the opportunity not only to play a part in achieving our goals, but to grow with us as well.
We have ambitious net zero targets, and our business is growing to help us achieve our strategy. We're looking for students who can bring fresh ideas, new skills and creative thinking, to deliver innovative solutions to help us reach net zero. This is an exciting time to join SSE, you have the power to make a change and help us build a better, more sustainable world of energy for you, your family, the community you live in and for generations to come.
Our Enterprise summer placements provide real hands-on experience through a 12-week placement in our Data and Analytics team. SSE is transforming the way it delivers value from data in order to drive net-zero. You will work to support the building of innovative data and analytics proof of concepts for complex industrial problems across the Distributed Energy and Solar and Battery business units. You will be working in a small agile team of data scientists/engineers/insights developers that apply state-of-the-art techniques from data science, machine learning & artificial intelligence as well as build advanced data visualisations and data products. We utilise a variety of data sources ranging from IOT sensor data, geospatial, weather, fault & maintenance, to telematics, imagery, text and energy meter data. Throughout the placement, you will have the support of a business mentor and buddy who will provide guidance to enable you to reach your full potential.
Our summer placement students work collaboratively in a variety of contexts, while also taking ownership of their role by working under their own direction to drive action forward. There will also be networking and presentation opportunities, specialist sessions and support from our graduates.
