The Role

As an Electrical External Service Engineer, you will be part of a team responsible for installing, commissioning, fault finding and servicing the company's products and systems across the UK. The engineers work across a wide range of sites, from quarries to chemical processing plants and more. Besides holding relevant electrical qualifications, a positive attitude and the ability to communicate well with customers are important.

Prior technical expertise and relevant electrical qualifications are important, along with a positive attitude and willingness to learn. The candidate must be confident with working at heights on busy operating sites. They must be able to communicate well both verbally and in writing. They will be fully supported as they settle into the new role and accompanied on all early site visits.

Main Duties & Tasks:

Install instrumentation on site to meet company quality standards and good practice.
Test, service and maintain equipment on customer sites.

Providing customers with advice on areas where additional equipment may be of use.
