Stephen Dickson

Engineering manager, SGN

Stephen is SGN’s Engineering Manager at its Edinburgh Depot. He is responsible for the safe and efficient operation of the gas network across Scotland’s capital city. Prior to this he spent nine years as a team manager, learning his trade on the management side of the business after eight years as an engineer installing and repairing gas pipes.

Stephen commented: “The Covid pandemic has been a particularly worrying time for all our engineers, but with their commitment and our support we’re managing to carry out our essential works keep our customers safe. One of the few highlights during this pandemic was the rollout of our new FYLD app to our teams. Edinburgh was the pilot depot and we managed to get all our engineering teams using this new technology without any face-to-face training. FYLD is one of the new tools we are using to get SGN fit for the future, making sure our business model is sustainable for the new GD2 price control and beyond.
