Scottish Power to create 300 jobs
1 March 2012
The energy company is launching a recruitment campaign to increase its engineering and technical department by creating 300 new roles.
The 300 jobs include System Design, HVDC development and engineers to manage the transmission and distribution networks.
Scottish Power plans to increase the number of young people within the organisation and the industry, with a 30% of the jobs earmarked for apprentices and graduates.
There will be around 50 new apprenticeships created and the graduate programme will look to take in at least 50 new graduates by 2013.
Scottish Power plans to invest over £5 billion to upgrade the electricity network in central and southern Scotland over the next ten years.
Ingnacio Galàn, Chairman of Scottish Power, says: "We are projecting investments totaling £12 billion in the UK over the course of this decade and it is vital we do all that we can to encourage people to develop the skills required to take advantage of these investments.
"Our aim is to ensure that school children and those at college and university see this kind of skilled employment as an attractive option. Engineers are retiring every day and we want to see the next generation of workers knocking on our door to fill their places."
More Flexibility in the workplace with Borer's FUSION T&A System.
Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees.
One way to do this is by implementing flexitime by providing staff with flexible working hours to accommodate those working part-time, family priorities, covering absences and job sharing.
