Who is Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks?

Our electricity distribution and transmission networks carry 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.

What does Commercial and Connections do?

The Commercial and Connections team are situated across the country in locations such as Perth, Inverness, Reading and Portsmouth. We are the first point of contact for customers wishing to have a new electricity connection, increase the size of their existing connection, install generation, or move the equipment supplying their property. We’re here to help whether our customers are building a single home, housing development, industrial development, generation development or independent distribution network. Our responsibility is to respond to challenging changes in our licence obligations, growing levels of competition and play a key role in progression to a low carbon future.

I like the sound of that, what about the role itself?

The Contestable Quoter role is a pivotal one, helping to ensure Guaranteed Standards are met when providing external customers with quotations and designs of small electrical connections/diversions to our network. In providing our customer's these services you ensure we are delivering the highest level of care.

Your projects will be varied, and could involve single domestic connections, multiple domestic connections and commercial connections up to 200kVA. As a strong team player you will provide help in all areas when required .

Due to the regulated nature of our business, all timescales set for our connections projects are heavily monitored, and therefore must be produced and issued to customers within the Guaranteed Standards timescales. In line with regulation, all our designs must be compliant with all appropriate rules and regulations in place, as well as meeting all engineering specifications and financial targets.

    -   sound knowledge of IT, namely Microsoft packages including Word, Excel and Outlook; a flair for picking up new IT systems is a great advantage as we use Windebut & Sincal

Anything else?

    -    excellent written and verbal communication skills; comfortable liaising with stakeholders at all levels, both internal and external

    -    outstanding customer relationship skills, and a commitment to providing a high level service at all times
