Job Description

Commissioning engineer

London

£40k-£50K, Company Vehicle, Fuel card, Excellent Pension, Private Health, 25 days Holiday + 8 Bank Holidays.

The Opportunity

This is an ideal opportunity for skilled commissioning engineer to work to for a Virgin fast track 100 company specialising in energy management. The company are looking to further train and develop successful candidates.

The Role

In this role you will be required to perform commissioning, system testing and fault diagnosis, servicing and modifications on a range of LV and HV Switch gear and electrical distribution equipment up to 66KV. The role will require you to work on a number of different substations and sites. This will involve traveling to a number of different sites located around London.

# Attend DNO audits, quality audits and witnessed testing.
# Document test results and produce site work reports.
# Contribute to the formulation of offers for site activities.
# Participate in necessary schemes to provide cover outside of normal working hours.
# Assist with works tests when necessary.

You will be responsible for conducting pre commissioning testing and documentation. While on site you may be required to supervise a number of subcontractors or junior engineers.

The Candidate

The ideal candidate for this role will be a timer served engineer who has previously worked within energy distribution and switchgear. We are looking for switchgear commissioning engineers who are focused on giving the highest levels of service and professionalism. We are looking for an all-rounder engineer who has strong electrical and mechanical knowledge and has good experience with voltage up to 66KV. Of course any engineers with experience in either low, medium or high voltage + switch gear would be warmly welcomed.

Candidates who have previously worked with leading suppliers, ICPs, DNOs or IDNOs including working on substations with switchgear and electrical distribution equipment we would very much like to speak with. We have a number of roles for commissioning engineers so if you know anyone who would be interested please recommend them as we pay good referral fees.

Qualifications are a nice to have so anyone with a C&G level 3, HNC or ideally HND are encouraged to apply but above all experience in this type of work is the key. Candidates need to be flexible to staying in digs during the week as projects are likely to last a couple of days or more at a time.

The holder will be experienced in the principles of:
# High Voltage Testing (415v - 66kv systems)
# CT Magnetisation Curves
# CT Primary Injection
# Relay Secondary Injection (Both electro mechanical and 'PSL' relays)
# VT Primary Injection
# Control Circuit Wiring testing
# Mechanical/Electrical function testing of 415v - 66kv switchboards & networks
