Job description


 £17,998 during training, increasing to £29,603 once fully trained and loyalty bonus of up to £6,000 if you stay with us until December 2020.

Welcome to one of the biggest jobs around. The Smart Metering Programme is one of the most ambitious and important energy saving projects the UK has ever seen. At SSE alone, we’ve got 7 million meters to install by 2020. So we need a bigger team of dedicated and skilled fitters, to help us get it done. Help our customers manage their energy usage, and you’ll have the chance to get Dual Fuel Qualified, enjoy more job satisfaction, and have a better work life balance. Now that’s smart.

SSE Trainee Smart Meter Installer – doing the job

We provide you with all the training and support you need to become a Smart Meter Installer – with industry recognised gas, electric and metering qualifications. Once you have completed the training, you’ll be the face of SSE, fitting Smart Meters in our customers’ homes. You can spend your days out and about in your van, but with the confidence in having the support structure of a big organisation behind you.

What we’re looking for:

Preferably have experience working directly with customers

Display a willingness to learn in a technical environment

Demonstrate a high degree of safety awareness

IT skills 

A current driving licence with a maximum of 6 points

3 GCSEs at grade C or above

The benefits

As well as all the kit you need to do the job – van, tools and full PPE – you’ll get a great benefits package: including a generous holiday allowance; pension scheme; discounted energy, phone and broadband; and a share incentive scheme. If you stay in the role until December 2020 you will get a loyalty bonus of up to £6,000.

About SSE

At SSE our job is to provide the energy people need, in a reliable and sustainable way. We’re involved in producing, distributing and supplying electricity and gas, and we provide other energy-related services too. We’re also committed to being a great place to work for our talented and diverse workforce. So we’ll give you all the training you need to do a great job, and opportunities to develop within the company.
