Job Description

Electrical Fitter (Substation)
Scotland
Package: Circa £28,000 - £33,000 + OT, bonus, pension, private health, vehicle, share scheme, 28 days holiday + 8 bank holidays


The Opportunity

Would you be interested in the opportunity to join a billion pound Energy Management company that design, manufacturer and service all of their products? One of the world's largest Energy companies are looking to expand their engineering team that focus on HV/MV substations. Our client are forward thinking, and voted in the top 25 companies to work for worldwide. If you have an electrical background installing switchgear/transformers (400v-132kv) into substations then this could be right for you.

The Role

We are looking for a number of electrically biased Electrical Fitters to join the Field Engineering team to be based in Scotland. The company has just been given the green light on two major contracts overseeing four hundred sites across Scotland so you'll definitely be kept busy. If you have worked for any of Distribution Network Operators before either on a subcontract or permanent basis this would be very relevant.

This is an outstanding opportunity for an Electrical Fitter to take the next step in their career. Routes for progression are clear.

Typical Duties

Technical:

*You'll be tasked with installing switchgear and transformers into substations on the client site.
*Servicing of existing substations
*Cable pulling
*Fault finding
*Maintenance
*Replacement of busbars
*Installation of relay panels
*Installation and testing of Low and Medium Voltage electrical distribution equipment (Switchgear and transformers)
* Good practical Electrical and Mechanical skills

The ideal location will be in Scotland and the majority of the work is in that area but you`ll need to be flexible regarding travel. There may when you have to stay away a couple of nights a week so you'll have to be up for that.


The company really look after you and view employment as a long term game, the package includes the following;

*£28k - £33k basis (may stretch a little more for someone with right experience)
*Annual bonus
*Salary review
*Overtime (most engineers earn £40k including OT)
*Van + Fuel
*Pension
*Share Scheme
*35 days holiday
*Healthcare
*Life insurance

The Progression

Our client look to invest the best part of £30-£50k in every new employee over your initial and ongoing training periods with them. Some of the training may take place in Europe and also in other areas in the UK for at least the first 3 months so you'll need to be comfortable with a little travel to begin with.

This will all be paid for and you'll be put up in nice hotels, while this training takes place, not to mention how it will look in terms of qualifications gained on your CV.

Long term the plan is to get you up to AP (Authorised Person) level which again ensures you a decent increase in pay and responsibility. This won't happen overnight but it's worth putting out there right, so sets expectations on long term opportunities which are notoriously great with this company.

The candidate

*Strong electrical skills ideally 17th edition / HNC/ HND or equivalent
*Good mechanical skills
*Sound knowledge of using hand tools
