SSE are currently advertising for apprentices. The closing date for the applications is Sunday 19th March 2017.
Fiona McNab our SDS careers advisor has very kindly provided us with a summary of the job description and also has created two documents available below to assist with the application and interview process. She told us:
SSE are now open for applications. I’ve cut the gist of the requirements from the ad’s. I’ve also been through the application form and put them together in a document so you can also see what is expected and the type of questions asked. Closing date 19th March. Again, I’m happy to support anyone applying, the key to these applications is research. Could you please advertise on school websites/notice boards. These are great opportunities
