Are you a Electrical, Mechanical and Instrumentation (EM&I) Technician who has an electrical bias? Or are you more mechanically bias and looking to further develop your skills set in electrical work? If so, we are looking for someone to join our team of Technicians who can bring a can-do attitude and a flexible approach to working.

What’s the job?

We are a close-knit team of skilled technicians who are renowned for the quality of our work. We pride ourselves on our staff development and that means you will have great opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge on the job.

The Electrical Mechanical and Instrumentation team provide 24/7, 365 days per year operations. We’re looking for a committed individual who can be flexible in their work pattern to meet the demands of the department. We ensure the operation and maintenance of water treatment works, network boosters, boreholes and reservoirs so they are compliant and meet quality standards.

  • manage critical spares and spares lists
  • deliver a first-class health and safety approach to work
  • deliver work to a time scale under permits.

Please note, we work in a 24/7 operational team, so you will be required to cover out-of-hours call-outs as part of a standby rota.

What do I need?

We are looking for an experienced Multiskilled Technician or an electrically bias technician who is self-motivated and can work with minimal direct supervision.

  • fault finding skills
  • computer literacy
  • PLC programming and fault diagnosis

  • Opportunity to buy and sell up to five days’ holiday.
