Where you’ll be working

Our energy landscape is going through a time of profound change. A challenge touching every part of our society, we need to eradicate carbon emissions to halt the effects of climate change. We need to change how we live our lives and replace the use of fossil fuels for transport and heat.

Electricity will be at the heart of the solution, through electric vehicles and heat pumps. And with more renewables generation and other technologies connected to the electricity grid than ever before, it’s our role to make sure we create a more efficient, cleaner, greener network to accommodate this increase in demand.

Within SP Energy Networks, we are focusing on harnessing technology and innovation to create the networks of the future. With distribution networks designed for predictable, stable demand, it’s vital we upgrade our network to create the flexibility required to cope with the extensive changes to electricity demand, generation and consumer behaviour. Through technology and innovation, we will enable a consumer-led revolution in the use and operation of our system. It will undergo the biggest changes to its design and operation for over half a century and you can be part of it.

What you’ll be doing

As a Cyber Security Graduate Apprentice / Degree Apprentice, your role will be crucial in ensuring the safety and security of all planned activities. Collaborating with various teams, such as Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC), Security Architecture, Cyber Security Operations and Project Delivery, you will learn to implement robust Cyber Security measures to protect the organisation's digital assets and infrastructure.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to work closely with the Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) team where you will be responsible for identifying and assessing risks, implementing controls, monitoring compliance, and providing assurance to stakeholders that risks are effectively managed. As part of the Security Architecture team, you will develop skills in addressing potential security risks and vulnerabilities by selecting and implementing appropriate security controls. Additionally, working alongside the Cyber Security Operations team, you will support the detection, response and recovery from cyber security incidents, contributing to continuous improvement of our security posture. This is a fantastic opportunity to enhance your cyber security skills, with ongoing learning opportunities and training to help you pave the way towards the career you desire.

As part of your responsibilities, you will be encouraged to research new and specialist techniques, allowing you to stay at the forefront of the field. In addition, you will have the chance to work across industries, gaining diverse perspectives and insights that will enrich your understanding of cyber security. Your input will also be instrumental in shaping SP Energy Networks Cyber LAB, a hub of expertise and innovation. Within this role, you will hold a crucial position, providing oversight, governance and valuable advice to our business. From day-to-day activities to current and future projects, you will be recognised as an expert in the field, offering your expertise and guidance to drive success.

  • Starting salary of £20,000
  • A generous pension scheme where we’ll double match your contributions up to 10%
  • A broad range of flexible benefits including share incentive plans, employee discounts, charity-matched funding and many, many more.
  • On completion of your programme, you’ll continue your development and you’ll be ready to become a Cyber Security Engineer, with a starting salary of £39,240.

Your journey as a Cyber Security apprentice will include a multitude of exciting opportunities and rewarding experiences that will shape your professional career in the Cyber Security field. From day one, you will have the chance to work alongside experienced professionals who are passionate about what they do. This collaborative environment fosters continuous learning and growth, providing you with the perfect platform to enhance your technical skills and broaden your knowledge. Your technical skill set in the Cyber Security domain, including a strong understanding of network protocols, operating systems and computer architecture, will be invaluable in identifying and implementing sustainable practices within our operations. You will have the opportunity to use your expertise to contribute to the development of secure systems, protect against cyber threats and ensure the integrity of our networks.

What's in it for you

If you live in Scotland, you’ll have four Highers at grades A - B, including Computing or Maths (or equivalent). You’ll also have National 5s at grades A - C in Maths and English (or equivalent). We’re taking a hybrid approach to working with your time split between university, home and the office.
