    I have been working at SGN full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    SGN is a large, experienced company and although only set up in 2005 is made up of people and teams who have been working in the Gas Industry for many years. Some of our best managers have come up through the ranks having joined as apprentices at age 16. I myself have been with the company in various identities for 37 years.
    The salaries are competitive. The company is a leader in innovation, environmental efficiencies, health and safety of its staff, procedures and the public.
    There are many opportunities to develop and climb the ladder if you desire but you are also supported should you want to your career in the same role or team.
    There is a great camaraderie and social scene in most teams and colleagues have made friends for life.
    There are many company benefits and all staff are encouraged to support the community and charities within our footprint.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Business Change Lead Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SGN (Horley, Surrey, South East England, England) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was fine, initial competency based interview and followed up with second interview a few weeks later which included a presentation, desktop exercise and more competency based questions. There was also a personality assessment that I had to complete.

    It took 4 weeks to ‘officially’ find out I did not get the job. However, I had resigned myself to a disappointing outcome as the job seemed to have been readvertised on LinkedIn via a recruiter before I had found out if I was successful or not.

    Feedback provided was limited and provided little for me to take forward for future interviews. The feedback was sent in an email from a member of the recruitment team, not from someone who interviewed me which was disappointing. Considering I had used annual leave and funded a hotel visit myself to be available for the interviews, I felt it would have been more courteous to receive the outcome and feedback over the phone from the recruiting manager himself.

Company Updates

  • We supported World Mental Health Day 2017 by sharing some tips to help colleagues look after their own wellbeing. Tips courtesy of MIND included simple things like - reclaiming lunch breaks by going for a walk, getting the work-life balance right and taking the time to talk to your manager if workload is spiralling out of control. We also run an Employee Assistance programme which helps colleagues deal with life’s challenges and changes.

  • Colleagues from our Glasgow depot recently had a brilliant day out at Loch Katrine funded by our fitclub initiative, which aims to promote health and wellbeing and teambuilding amongst our people. The eleven colleagues had an hour’s sail on the steamship St Walter Scott before cycling 14 miles back. Well done to the team, some of whom were new to cycling and had sore legs by the next day!
