Full Time
Catch 22's Technical Services Division has a number of vacancies (temp and perm) for a well established Refrigeration Contractor in the Greater London area. The client, trading for 20 years, has a number of existing clients in the West End / Central London area - mainly restaurants and public house establishments - to whom they provide a comprehensive maintenance, repair and installation service.
As part of this service, the company also repairs and maintains a wide variety of Catering Equipment (Gas). As a result - we are looking to strengthen the team by appointing a COMCAT Certified Engineer who is happy to work in restaurants, hotels and public houses across Central London.
The Role
  • A Qualified Catering Equipment Engineer is required (either short term temp or full time staff) to provide maintenance and repair services in Central London. The work is mobile but concentrated on a tight knit collection of clients - largely in the hospitality sector.
  • The Catering Equipment will be varied (including Rational, Hobart, Falcon, Buffalo etc) and units are generally fairly small and straight forward - but the client base is demanding and fast paced - so the engineers need to have great customer service skills, a solid career history and a proven capability in fault finding and first time repairs, a willingness to work overtime and travel around central London.
  • Many of the clients are grouped within walking distance so the existing team will often park up centrally and conduct maintenance and repair work on foot.

The Person
  • Must be Gas Safe / ACS Qualified and hold COMCAT 1 and 3 (minimum) with COMCAT 2 and 5 a nice bonus!
  • Must hold a UK Driving License
  • Could be a contractor or someone looking for a staff position.
  • Will consider applications from engineers who have completed an Apprenticeship and have the relevant NVQ/City & Guilds Qualifications alongside their COMCAT Certificates.

The PackageWe are open minded on salary and fully aware that COMCAT Engineers are in high demand at present. I would expect a salary around £35,000 and over but I am happy to listen to realistic expectations, subject to experience.
The existing team is contracted to a 40 hour week but, as you would expect, a more realistic weekly time sheet will clock up in excess of 50-60 hours per week. The potential OTE for this role would be in excess of £45,000 per annum. The existing team is very well established and staff retention is excellent.
