SSEN owns  electricity distribution and transmission networks carrying electricity to over 3.7 million homes and businesses across the north of Scotland and Central Southern England. Our skilled teams are based right across the regions we serve, from the bustle of West London to the smallest villages in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

Our network comprises of underground cables, overhead wooden poles, steel towers and electricity substations, and it extends over a quarter of the UK land mass across some of its most challenging terrain. We take the electricity generated from various sources, and transport it to areas of demand around our towns and cities.

Our Role

We operate in a closely regulated market, and as such, our commitments to regulatory licenses and bodies such as Ofgem are of vital importance. With this in mind, we are looking for a Business Analyst to join our team with the primary responsibility of establishing, monitoring and delivering processes to ensure our continued compliance. In this role, you’ll develop an understanding of Transmission’s licence obligations, and become a subject matter expert in the data requirements surrounding these.

Working closely with other internal teams such as Audit, Compliance and Assurance, you’ll develop and implement robust systems and processes to allow us to remain up to date and in accordance with the ever changing licencing landscape. Another part of your role will involve conducting GAP analysis and risk maps as and when required, as well as tracking, monitoring and completing compliance and assurance audits. This role interacts with various teams across the business, and plays an integral part in our commitment to our regulatory obligations.

To ensure you get the most from your role, and our level of service is held at the highest standard, we ask that you have previous experience in a Business Analysis role, ideally within the Utilities Sector. A qualification in a relevant field to a min. NVQ5 level would be great, although equivalent experience is also suitable. You will ideally hold knowledge of the utilities industry, and you should possess an ability to learn about new markets and processes quickly, yet accurately.

You’ll be an inquisitive individual, with a very keen eye for detail; you’ll be working with large volumes of complex data, hence the need for excellent IT skills, namely Excel and PowerPoint. Experience of carrying our rigorous and thorough research is also key, and you’ll have strength in utilising multiple data sources to form plans and opinions. In addition, you’ll be comfortable taking licence requirements and obligations and developing clear and easy to understand plans which will be used by various stakeholders. Communication will be a key strength of yours, along with an excellent ability to manage your time and projects in an efficient manner.

Our Benefits

For us it's not just about being good at what you do - it's about enjoying what you do, too. So we'll encourage and empower you to be imaginative, share your great ideas, and do work that you can be proud of.  In return, you'll enjoy a variety of benefits and development opportunities.
