ScottishPower is excited to announce the launch of their 2021/2022 Returner Programme

The Programme provides ALL candidates who have taken a career break of two years or more with opportunities to re-enter the STEM industry, last year we broadened the criteria to include candidates who have had a role in STEM which has been directly impacted by Covid19 and with the pandemic still having a big impact on the job market, we are delighted to be doing the same this year.

The programme helps applicants refresh their existing skills and knowledge while building their confidence in a working environment through a structured pathway.
