The main site is in Sunderland you will be based there 3-4 days a week with the other days visiting sites in Newcastle completing monthly ppm's. There are around 6 sites in total you could be working, 4 in the North East and 2 based in Leeds - Leeds has it's own engineer so you will largely be based in the North East but may need to travel down.
The client you will be working with is in the banking sector so the sites are professional and well maintained.

Ideally the candidate will be both qualified in commercial gas and air-conditioning to be able to look after all aspects of the site, however the manager will consider a single skill and supplement the gaps with subcontractors.

This role is ideal for anyone who is interested in progression as they will be looking to put the successful engineer through training courses to become a Mechanical AP and also an Electrical AP which are sought after accreditation.

Key Responsibilities:
  • To carry out PPM in accordance with set schedules across all mechanical assets and electrical where possible. All general ppm's are to also be completed on site so this is not a pure mechanical role.

  • To co-ordinate visiting specialist sub-contractors associated with M&E aspects of the PPM schedules. Surveying and accepting of new works and reactive repairs carried out by specialist sub-contractors.

To join the out of hours, call out team reacting to help desk requests within the local area. Call out is 1 in 2 although you are very rarely called our due to the nature of the site. There is £100 standby for being on call so this is another £2,600 per year for being onstandby on top of your salary.

There is overtime available on this and the other sites as well for planned ppm work which needs to be done out of operating hours.

  • Qualified commercial gas engineer - OR qualified air-conditioning engineer - ideally both
