MM140 - Service Engineer
Location: Argyll & Bute
Salary: Competitive + Overtime + On Call


The successful Service Engineer will carry out maintenance and fault finding on our client’s wind turbines as directed by the Operations Manager with assistance from the local Team Leader, to ensure maximum turbine availability to the customer.


  • Follow up errors and repair faults to maximise turbine availability for customers
  • Perform preventative maintenance according to service manual and carry out other maintenance as required to ensure turbines run to specification and meet manufacturers’ warranties
  • Assist the Technical Support Manager and Operations Manager to analyse faults and establish solutions to maximise turbine availability
  • Work with Team Leader, Site Manager and Health and Safety Adviser to carry out all work in a safe manner in accordance with UK Health and Safety Management System, Wind Turbine Safety Rules and legislation
  • Participate in all Health & Safety Training, including First Aid, to enable emergency response assistance for colleagues when difficulties arise

Further Information:

Service Engineers will work in teams of 2 to 3, servicing 15-30 turbines. If a fault occurs, the PMS Centre will be alerted. PMS will undertake remote monitoring and decide whether to call an engineer to site (engineers are on call from 6am until 8pm).

  • The Service Engineer will need to exercise technical judgement and decide whether the fault can be repaired safely within a reasonable timescale in the event of being called out, or whether to leave the job until the next day
  • The Service Engineers will, from time to time, meet customers on site, so good interpersonal and communication skills are essential
  • The work is both technically and physically demanding. A Service Engineer is required to work at height in tough conditions; therefore, a high level of physical fitness is essential
  • The administrative side of the job is also very important and the role holder must ensure activities are documented and recorded using the company reporting system. Therefore, good written communication skills and computer literacy are required
  • Close, effective working with colleagues and the Team Leader is critical due to remoteness of sites and Health and Safety responsibilities

Knowledge, Skills and Experience:

  • Experience of servicing and maintaining electrical industrial plant (including knowledge and experience of mechanical rotating plant)
  • ONC level or equivalent experience in electrical engineering. Similar qualifications and /or experience in mechanical engineering would also be considered
  • Ideally have experience of Method Statement and Risk Assessments production and use in the workplace
  • Working knowledge of UK Health and Safety regulations would be advantageous
  • Experience working within the Wind Power industry would be highly advantageous
  • Full current driving license
  • Experience in using Microsoft Office packages
