Nehal Mehta

Regions and Social Value Director, SSE Energy Services

Nehal is responsible for driving decarbonisation and net zero projects along with social value with both public and private sector within key focus regions SSE Energy Solutions are focussing on.  Nehal is keen to look beyond what qualifications people may or may not possess and back their potential when bringing people into SSE and get the diversity of talent we need to make net zero a reality.

Nehal, working with the wider team is actively recruiting and working in partnership with several social value organisations, educational establishments and community groups on innovative ways of bringing people from different backgrounds into our business. The regional strategy will see SSE focus on working with local contractors and suppliers where possible and plans to open more regional hubs across the country in the coming months.

With SSE we have primarily had offices in Scotland or South, the Regional hubs initiative has seen hubs opened in Greater Manchester, Liverpool, West Midlands, West Yorkshire, Teesside and Sunderland.  Nehal has aspirations to create even more regional hubs across the country over the coming months and, ultimately, to do three things: unlock investment in low carbon infrastructure, create jobs and deliver the skills needed for net zero.
