Do you want to see IT make a difference to the business? Use your business skills to set the course of a FTSE100 which is a household name? If so, say yes to SSE and you'll use technology to drive innovation and transform our future.

As one of the UK & Ireland's largest and most diverse energy companies, we're always keen to identify great talent. We're looking for bright, ambitious graduates from IT disciplines to join our IT Graduate Programme.

The great technological transformations we're making aren't just benefiting SSE – they're also making it easier for our customers. They are an exciting part of our business, and the clever, enthusiastic individuals that can be the difference on delivering our transformational journey are some of our most valuable assets.

If you are keen on technology and want to make a difference, you've just found a scheme worth saying yes to. It's not just a technical scheme; more about learning how we use technology to support the business and our customers. Our IT Graduate programme lasts for 2 years and firstly, you'll learn the role of IT in Business, helping to translate real business problems into usable IT solutions. After that, you'll have the opportunity to work in a whole host of different areas such as emerging technology, infrastructure support, system architecture and project management with your final 6 months being in a substantive role which is likely to be your secured position at SSE post Graduate Programme.

Ideally, you'll need to be on track to achieve a 2:2 or above in a business or IT-related degree discipline. However, if you can show us your passion for IT and digital environments and your degree qualification (2:2 or above), we'd definitely be interested in hearing more about you. And while we don't expect you to know everything about IT, we do expect you to have a passion for technology, be a quick and keen learner and someone that is ready to make the most of the opportunities that the IT Graduate scheme provides.

In return for your hard work, we'll give you structured learning and a challenging development programme. You'll enjoy all sorts of benefits, rewards and perks – including a good salary, generous holiday entitlement and staff discounts, as well as a host of lifestyle benefits.

So if you've got the drive to succeed, say yes to SSE. Find out more about the IT Graduate scheme, and make your online application, by clicking here.
