SSE Works Programme – Now taking Applications for New Positions


Business in the Community Ireland

As part of their commitment to Inclusion and Diversity and Business in the Community Ireland’s Elevate Pledge, SSE Airtricity will hire five people from underrepresented groups (such as people with disabilities) to start work this winter in their business. This is a unique opportunity to join one of Ireland’s leading green energy providers on a permanent contract. In line with best practice the roles are accessible and flexible: applicants do not need to be degree qualified; they will be working a hybrid system of both remotely and in the office, and part time hours can be negotiated. The roles will be primarily in Customer Service and Sales. Career progression within the business will be encouraged.

Some of the benefits of these positions will be:

  • There are no educational requirements.
  • All salaries will be above the living wage in Ireland.
  • 4 weeks of training will be provided and there will be extra assistance if required.
  • The positions will be a hybrid of home and office working, and part time hours can be arranged
  • BITCI will play a supporting role to the new hires and to SSE staff
  • Applicants do not need to be on a particular type of payment to apply. However, applicants on certain types of social welfare are encouraged to consult with their social welfare officer to see how this could affect them.

If you or anyone in your organisation or programme know potential candidates interested in these positions, please let us know through the contact information on the attached flyer. We expect these positions will be very competitive.

If you are a member of BITCI and interested in running a similar campaign to recruit people from underrepresented groups please get in touch with your adviser.
