Working in SP Energy Networks

My name is Stephen I’m a Project Manager and I’ve been with ScottishPower for about a year and a half now.

My name is Marcus I’m a Project Unit Manager for Scottish Power and I’ve been with the company for eight and a half years. 

My name is Jonathan and I have worked for SP Energy Networks since 2014 when I joined as a graduate.

I had been working for a company who was a contractor to Scottish Power.  I was approached and asked if I would like to join the team.

Within Energy Networks we're split into two licenses.  We're split into a transmission business and a distribution business. I'm part of the distribution business which looks into all electrical infrastructure at 32,000 volts and below. 

I work in the transmission element of the business and more specifically within projects so I’m in charge of a team that facilities connections for developers. 

We work on the network, the existing networks and also build new networks. So, all the construction part of it.

There are lots of opportunities, for example to join a management role, there's also lots of positions if you want to become really technical. Both of those paths are open. 

What I’ve come to realise is that everyone has the same goals I think the culture we're trying to achieve something for our customers. So there's been I think a general drive to make sure whatever we're doing it has to be good for the customer.

I like learning new things, I like to see new things, we are progressing with different technology, we have equipment which is now getting smaller and smaller.  The function of the equipment is better as well so all this is just making my job even more exciting.

There's a real focus on getting the job done everybody just seems to be happy to do their part but also help you with whatever you need to get done.  I've never been turned away for anybody yet not even if somebody's too busy it's always just people always have time to help you.

 If I were to describe a ScottishPower I would say that they are reliable as supportive and professional.

Professionalism, safety and opportunity.

I would say it's a dynamic, driven and successful environment.
