Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks forms part of the FTSE-50 energy company, SSE. Our electricity distribution and transmission networks carry electricity to over 3.7 million homes and businesses across the north of Scotland and Central Southern England. Our skilled teams are based right across the regions we serve, from the bustle of West London to the smallest villages in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

We are looking to recruit a Linesperson to join the team, providing services across the Ridgeway Region (Wiltshire and Oxfordshire). This role will involve work on High and Low voltage networks for both new connections, fault repair and diversion works. You'll be responsible for the safety of yourself and colleagues and be expected to demonstrate adherence to our core values. The role can be demanding and you will be required to respond quickly to emergency situations. The role will involve working outdoors in all weather conditions. There will also be a requirement to undertake standby duties.

To be successful, you’ll have a proven track record in construction, repair and operation of electrical plant and equipment up to 11kV and should have a sound HV and LV electrical knowledge. In line with our key company values you will need a good understanding of sustainability and health and safety. You should also have good communication skills, both technical and non technical, be adaptable, self motivated and flexible. A clean driving licence is essential as you will be required to travel and work in different locations. As part of your role, you’ll be expected to carry out stand-by duties and attend short notice work in the event of severe weather, therefore you should be flexible with your time.

For us it's not just about being good at what you do - it's about enjoying what you do, too. So we'll encourage and empower you to be imaginative, share your great ideas, and do work that you can be proud of. In return, you'll enjoy a variety of benefits and development opportunities.
