Mobile Electrician

Maidstone

£32130 + £2K bonus + Van (All fuel paid including for personal use) Mobile, Tablet, Pension, Holidays, and lots more.

OT and on call 1 weekend in 3 paid at time and a half and double pay. Most mobile electricians comfortably take home £40K+ for a comfortable working week. Full and continuous training is provided throughout your career with the company.

Why should you apply?

Are you an electrician/ field service engineer, who would like to work for one of the best companies in the UK? You will receive lots of training, support & friendship. Most of the engineering team believe it's the best company they've ever worked for.

Roles only come up very rarely due to a low turnover of staff. So if you are considering a move please apply and we will be in touch to tell you more.

What will you be doing?

As an electrician/ field service engineer you will be working in the Maidstone, Chatham, Tunbridge Wells, Orpington and surrounding areas. You will be installing, servicing and repairing the highest spec commercial kitchenware, sterilisation equipment, respiratory machines. These machines are not white boxes but high tech modular units up to extensive conveyor systems.

You will receive full training and guidance in the early part of the role and support while on site to ensure you can resolve most issues. The training is onsite, shadowing other engineers and at the specially build training centre in Slough.

Your end goal will be to take ownership for your region and build trustful relationships with your customers.

Customers range from the fire brigade, hospitals, airports, universities, hotels, restaurants and bars. As the equipment advances you will need to continue to train so must be very open to learning new skills.

Who are we looking for?

You will need to be an electrician or come from an electrical background! Any mechanical or plumbing skills would also be useful. The electrics is a must have as this would take too long to teach, so if you have testing and inspecting, 17th edition, C&G or an apprenticeship you are half way there.

Secondly you will need to enjoy working in the field. Some of the time you will team up with other engineers for big installations or repairs but the vast majority of the time you will be out by yourself (once training complete). You will be in daily contact with your call handler and colleagues but you will be working by yourself most of the time.

Finally you must take pride in your work, be keen to lean and enjoy talking and building relationships with customers. The company pride themselves on never losing customers. This is down to the technical capabilities and personalities of the engineers, who offer a smile and a chat as they go.

What will you earn?

Basic starting salary is £32130 but you will receive an additional bonus of £2000 annually paid in £500 increments quarterly. You get a brand new van including fuel card which you can use for personal use, including the fuel.
You earn extra from completing overtime (1.5x & 2x and being on call one weekend in three up to 17.00pm. Most engineers in their first year take home around £41-£42K for a comfortable working week.
You can earn more elsewhere but the work life balance and environment you will work in is unlikely to be matched. You also get a Pension, holidays and loads of kit.
