I worked at SSE full-time (More than a year)
Supportive network, friendly staff, excellent company culture, flexibility with roles, guaranteed job.
No formal qualifications received during the scheme.
Advice to Management
Might be worth looking into tailored schemes with formal qualifications.
I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at SSE.
Process included online numerical and psychometric testing - why is this required? Was unsuccessful after final interview and contacted shortly after about another position which I was deemed suitable for. Went back in for a chat and after 3 weeks was informed that budget was not approved for the position, then it was re-advertised. Poor show. Wouldn't touch them with a barge pole after such a poor experience.
