• Assist project engineers with technical backup, including on-site handover demonstrations.

• Must be willing to travel to site and work out of hours/weekends as and when needed.
• Must have a full, valid UK Driving licence

Desirable qualities:
• A background in the electrical industry is desirable, preferably in electrical contracting, although a service background for an OEM would also be considered.
