Some of your other main accountabilities will include:

- Liaising with internal and external key stakeholders and facilitating a safe system of work for staff and contractors by carrying out inductions, reviewing risk assessments and method statements.

- Acting as an ambassador for SSE, engaging positively with visitors and 3rd parties around our safety standards whilst on site.

- Previous experience of working on electro-mechanical systems such as rotating machines, gearboxes, switch gear and control systems.

- Experience of working at height and with pressure systems and lifting equipment.
