Work and Skills

ScottishPower has a high performing representative workforce and a resilient supply chain capable of meeting both our current and future needs.

The energy transition to net zero is a massive job creation opportunity. The UK Government estimates that the transition can support 480,000 jobs in 2030. It is therefore vital that we develop a diverse and able workforce fit for the future, equipping them with the right tools and skillsets across all areas of our businesses and all stages, from trainees to time- served trades and supporting roles.

We are already making a difference:

  • We want to attract and retain skilled and talented people who will help us shape the future of energy and speed up the journey to net zero and with a huge pipeline of projects to deliver over the next decade, we need to expand and in 2023 alone, have created 1,000 new green jobs
  • We have recruited talent through our pre-employment and employee attraction initiatives; including our Graduate, Masters scholarships and Power Academy Scholarships programmes
  • We have widened the opportunities for people to enter the industry through our STEM Outreach Programmes (including Girls into STEM) & employability programmes, as well as partnering with POWERful women, Energy Leaders Coalition, and the Breaking Barriers Programme.
