Join us for a 45 minute session where you will hear from 4 women currently on 2 of ScottishPower’s Programmes. Each of them is working in a different area of the business and they come from a variety of degree programs.
Come along to hear directly from them on the following topics:
- What helps when applying for Grad roles in this sector?
- What have you learned on the Programme so far and what challenges have you had to overcome
- How has Covid19 impacted your role?
This panel session will be followed by a Q&A so you can ask any further questions.
Evelyn– “I’m a year in industry student working in the Sustainability team at SP Energy Networks. I work within the Environmental Sustainability workstream of the RIIO-ED2 distribution network price control, where we are responsible for developing the environmental initiatives that will shape our progress toward Net Zero. I’ll be returning to university in September to complete my chemical engineering studies.”
Katie– Having joined the Scottish Power Renewables Graduate Programme in September 2020, I am about to complete my first 6 month placement. With a degree in Civil Engineering, I was placed in the Foundation Design Management Team for my first role. I really enjoy being able to apply the technical skills and knowledge I have from university to a job that is providing solutions to global energy and climate challenges. As the graduate placements are flexible and can be tailored to our own goals, I am really looking forward to experiencing the other areas within the renewables business.
Kathryn– I am a 2nd Year Graduate Engineer in the Networks business. SP Energy Networks maintain the electricity transmission and distribution networks and facilitate upgrades and new connections from new houses to windfarms. The Networks engineering graduates rotate through a serious of placements in different teams and areas to learn and get a taste of the overall business. This also helps us to indicate our preferences for our final longer placement which I am about to start.
Abbey– I studied economics for my undergraduate degree and then studied Climate Change and International Development for my postgraduate degree with the help of a scholarship from Scottish Power. Following this, I was offered a place on the offshore graduate scheme, starting in September 2020. My first 6 month placement has been with the Offshore Development Team, helping to draft bids for new sites and supporting with procurement activities, this has given me exposure to external stakeholders and internal departments. My next placement will be with the Offshore Environment Team.
