SSE is one of the largest and most diverse energy companies in the UK and Ireland with around 10 million customer accounts, over 20,000 staff, and a generating capacity of 27.6 TWh of electricity every year. We operate in a regulated market and our Industry Codes team in the Regulation department works in partnership with SSE's Retail business to influence and deliver a regulatory and industry code framework that enhances value, reduces risk and aligns with SSE's strategy. Due to internal staff movement we now have an opportunity for an Analyst to join the retail energy arm of the team, supporting our Industry Codes Leads and reporting to the team’s Regulation Manager.

You will have a varied workload which will include providing information and advice on regulatory policy issues and regulations to SSE's retail business.

The skill to prioritise, and deliver quality to work to challenging deadlines will be a key element we want to see from the successful candidate. Things can change rapidly in the utilities market so someone who is change oriented and has a positive, flexible approach towards the implementation of new initiatives is essential. With teamwork as one of our core values we are looking for an individual who thrives in an environment where collaborative working and sharing best practice is the norm.

Previous work experience in either utilities or in regulation would be a benefit but is not essential.
