Wind Farm Service Engineer required for work in the Wick/Thurso area
Due to the current Covid-19 situation we can only accept candidates that have the below within date certification:
- Renewable UK Medical - essential
- GWO Working at Height -essential
- GWO First Aid -essential
- GWO Fire Awareness -essential
- GWO Manual Handling -essential
- Hub Rescue - desirable (will be looked on a case by case basis)
- Hoist Operations- desirable (will be looked on a case by case basis)
The role will involve electrical servicing and maintenance of wind turbines and due to the reactive nature of the work, the candidates will need to live within one hour commute to the Service Station.
The role will be standard daytime hours with no shift work but there is an on call rota which is roughly one week in three where you will need to be available until 8pm for call out.
You will be working at height and so need to be confident in that environment.
This role will primarily require Electrical Engineering skills and experience ideally with heavy industrial equipment. If you have Mechanical experience as well this will be a great asset, but it is not required, and our client is unlikely to consider candidates who do not have Electrical experience.
Specifically, you will need to have experience with 3 phase systems, electrical fault finding, and electrical systems maintenance. If you have experience with PLCs and control systems this will also strengthen your application.
If you have worked in the wind industry before this will be an advantage but electrical engineering experience with the armed forces, marine, heavy plant, factory, and manufacturing are all good potential backgrounds for this role.
You will also need to have a driving license for this role.
