What do I need to be successful in the role?

  • You will have an electrical background and will have completed an apprenticeship achieving an NVQ Level 3 along with AM2, City and Guilds 2391 qualifications
  • It would be a benefit if you have a good knowledge of the 18th Edition
  • We work in all weathers! So you need to be the type of person who is happy working outdoors all year round.
  • A lot of this role will be working up high, so you need to be comfortable with working in a 'cherry picker' and dealing with heights.

We can however support the right candidate to achieve any level of industry training/qualifications they may not have in the 'nice to have' list

We know that some applicants don't apply unless they think they tick all the boxes- but we are saying don't worry! We would much rather see your application than risk missing out on your potential! We know our strength comes from our differences and shared life experiences so we are committed to offering a safe work environment, where individuals are respected.

What are the benefits for me?
