We invest millions every year to make sure that our network is in the best condition possible to minimise the risk of power cuts and to ensure the safety of the public. During high winds and storms, trees can contact our equipment and cause power cuts, and so we cut them down or trim them back to keep the lights on. As well as installing the latest technologies and carrying out regular maintenance, we have our in-house and contract partner tree-cutting teams to make sure that trees and vegetation are kept away from our overhead lines and equipment.

Finally, you’ll work with the wider Commercial Performance Team to identify and mitigate any ongoing productivity or safety issues with contract partners. As the face of SSEN, you will build strong, effective relationships with our customers and contract partners to drive safety, value and productivity in all areas.
