Job Description

Field Service Engineer/Mobile Electrician (Commercial)

£29700 - £36500k inc OT, 6% Pension, bonus, BUPA, van + fuel

Swindon (field based) covering surrounding areas

Would you like to be working in and around Swindon? Would you like to work for a company with great tech and a super friendly and supportive team? If you want to work for a great boss, at a company where you can stay until your retire, then send us your CV and we will be in touch.

You'll be representing a respected German company that are in their 91st year of business and are a true market leader in their field (I've checked). They design, manufacture, install and service commercial kitchen and hospital surgery sterilisation machines. The equipment ranges in value from £10K up to £500K, so its decent kit.

You'll find yourself in airports, pub chains, hotels, hospitals and restaurants. The company pride themselves on once they have a customer they don't lose them, and that is down to the quality of the service team and the customer experience they offer.

An Ideal location to be based for this role would be in Swindon or anywhere close along the M4.

You'll be joining a close knit team made up of 50 UK based engineers and an Operations Manager who started out on the tools with the company 30 years ago, not some know it all who's never held a wrench. You'll get on well and he'll look after you.

You'll need to be strong electrically (apprenticeship, 17th edition, C&G, or something equivalent) and hold some sort of formal qualification. You'll also need to have your wits about you mechanically as some of the kit has conveyors/pumps.

You'll receive a van which includes personal use and fuel if you choose to take it. You also get a bonus of £2,000 on top of your £29700k basic for keeping the van clean and fully stocked. There's plenty of opportunity to kick your earnings up through overtime and on call earnings. Lee who I placed last year earns around £36k-£38K comfortably and doesn't do loads of overtime as he has family commitments.

This will appeal to the grafters out there, you'll like getting your hands dirty and won't pull a face at the first sign of an issue or working late to finish a job. There's an on call rota of 1/3 but it's just the weekends and only until 5pm so not that bad, call out earnings are normally worth £1,000 alone.

The average length of service for the engineers is 11 years so if you're after something long term and stable as opposed to constantly contracting, this could suit you, think German efficiency. You'll get BUPA health care thrown in + length of service bonuses. Pension is 6%.

They have a training centre set up at their HQ so you don't need to have worked commercial dishwashers in the past. They continually invest in this facility and for your first 6 -12months months you will shadow an experienced engineer. The company look for the right attitude and a strong electro/mechanical background, beyond any prior experience within the industry.

I'll be honest and say this probably isn't the role for you if you have ambitions of becoming a manager within 12months. The structure is flat so you will progress technically but there's not a lot of room to go into management straight away.
