Commenting on the news that energy giant SSE will be axing over 400 jobs, Amanda Dunnington, Business Development Consultant at specialist recruitment consultancy, Samuel Knight International, comments:

“As a local business we are saddened to hear that such a large number of people will soon be out of a job – particularly in an industry where high-calibre professionals are already in short supply.  We want to support those affected by the cuts and would be more than happy to hear from anyone looking for support in finding a new position.  We are also actively recruiting for a number of smart metre roles to expand our own team and strengthen the business – we would welcome the opportunity to discuss this with those seeking to utilise their skills and experience in the energy field.”
