SSE operates in a highly regulated and increasingly competitive environment, and our role is to ensure that we gather, compile, analyse and recommend on the financial strategy for our businesses, identifying opportunities to drive efficiencies and create value for SSE now, and in the future. What is the Role? This role will be responsible for supporting the Financial aspects of the Electricity Transmission Capital Investment programme at an exciting time of growth within the industry.
