Job Ref:

We are currently looking for an experienced service engineer in Peterborough from a strong electrical or mechanical background (ideally electrical) who have the below training:

* Renewable UK Medical – essential
* GWO Working at Height -essential
* GWO First Aid -essential
* GWO Fire Awareness -essential
* GWO Manual Handling -essential
* Hub Rescue – desirable (will be looked on a case by case basis)
* Hoist Operations- desirable (will be looked on a case by case basis)

The role will involve electrical servicing and maintenance of wind turbines and due to the reactive nature of the work, the candidates will need to live within one hour commute of the Service Station.

The role will be standard daytime hours with no shift work but there is an on call rota which is roughly one week in three where you will need to be available until 8pm for call out.

You will be working at height and so need to be confident in that environment, but all appropriate training courses will be given if needed.

This role will primarily require Electrical Engineering skills and experience ideally with heavy industrial equipment. If you have Mechanical experience as well this will be a great asset, but it is not required, and my client won't consider candidates who do not have Electrical experience.

Specifically, you will need to have experience with 3 phase systems, electrical fault finding, and electrical systems maintenance. If you have experience with PLCs and control systems this will also strengthen your application.

If you have worked in the wind industry before this will be an advantage but electrical engineering experience with the armed forces, marine, heavy plant, factory, and manufacturing are all good potential backgrounds for this role.

Candidates who only have domestic and commercial electrician experience will not be considered.

You will need to have a driving license for this role.

If you would like to find out more about this position and to be considered, please contact James McNair at Cathcart Energy and apply with your latest CV.
