As Britain’s second largest energy company, SSE is currently on the lookout for ex-military personnel to join our ranks as Trainee Smart Meter Installers.

We’re looking to expand our team significantly, so we’re excited to reveal that we’ll be attending the British Forces Resettlement Services (BFRS) event in Catterick on 6th April, where attendees can expect to find out more about us and what this great role entails.

The BFRS National Employment & Careers Fair is expected to enjoy a good turn-out. Our team will be there to answer your questions, with additional support from a former serviceman who is now an SSE employee. Available for one-on-one chats about what it’s really like to work for us, and what new recruits can expect in the meter installing role, he is a valuable reminder that armed forces personnel are forging high-flying careers for themselves in civilian companies – and that’s something that we’re proud to be a part of.

SSE is proving to be a popular choice with those moving on from the armed forces. Producing and supplying gas and electricity in a sustainable way – plus other energy-related services – we’re currently working hard to meet the Smart Metering Programme deadline. But with 7 million meters to install before 2020, we’ve got our work cut out for us! Military talent is helping to plug that gap, we’re offering to train up new recruits, giving them the chance to become dual fuel qualified, with the added incentive of a £6,000 deferred loyalty bonus for those who remain with us until 2020. 

We will be revealing more about the £29,603 per year role – plus what the recruitment process will entail – at the BFRS event, so we’d like to encourage anyone interested to come and meet the team. We’re looking for employees who have good customer skills, solid safety awareness, a driving license and a willingness to learn in a technical environment – so if that’s you, come and introduce yourself!  

The event will be held at Catterick Leisure Centre, Gough Road, Catterick Garrison, North Yorkshire. DL9 3EL, on Thursday 6th April, 9.30am – 2pm.

It’s free entry for attendees, so you can just turn up on the day (or you can pre-register to reserve your place at www.bfrss.org.uk).

Attendees are encouraged to bring their CVs
