Job Description

Do you want to work in a company where you can make a real difference? Do you like the sound of working with a manager who you can really engage with, and who takes the time to listen to your perspective? Where your opinion is valued? How about the prospect of being able to help shape the careers of junior engineers? Maybe you are frustrated at feeling like a number in a much larger organisation, where your ideas and voice is lost? Perhaps you don't like working in an overly procedural driven environment and have limited ability to be creative or progress?

If any of the above "feels" familiar, then please read on:

We are looking for 2 x Electrical Technicians to join my client, a leading Water company in the South. This is the client who has been described by current employees as a company who "nurtures talent" and a "good and thoughtful employer".

Does this sound good to you? Please read on...

The criteria for a successful candidate?

  1. You will ideally need experience in HV and LV Electrical Engineering. Training for additional qualifications can be provided as needed.
  2. Lone working - you'll need to be self-directed,
  3. Confined space working -training will be given if you are new to this.
  4. Mobile working - you will have your own company van and will move between sites in your region (Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire) as required to repair and maintain equipment,
  5. Problem solving - you aren't going to know all the answers, and whilst you will have a supportive team of colleagues they are all busy solving their own problems, so you will need to be relentless in asking questions and researching answers to get to the bottom of the issue,
  6. Patience - you will be at multiple locations every week, with technical problems to solve every day. Plus there is an On-Call pattern to cover. So it is really important to have the ability to be able to relate to others and enjoy the job and all of its challenges. ….

  • The repair, maintenance and installation of electrical plant and water treatment related equipment including various types of pumps, motors, gas dosing equipment, PLC's, Telemetry and chemical analysers to ensure the reliable and efficient operation of our production works and associated sites.
