Would you like to be part of a team who are responsible for the safe and sustainable operation and maintenance of our water recycling assets?

Water Recycling is at the heart of our operations. The key services that we are responsible for are delivered by our in-house, highly-skilled workforce. We collect and treat the water that customers have used, returning it to the environment via rivers and coastal outlets. Our network includes 76,000 kilometres of sewers which feed 1,124 water recycling centres.

As a Maintenance Technician you will be responsible for the day-to-day reactive work along with urgent planned work, general repairs and the rectification of faults on sewage and vacuum pumping stations and water recycling assets, either directly or with the support of contractors.

You’ll be required to maintain and repair all kinds of equipment at our Water Recycling plants, sewage and vacuum pumping stations. Out and about in all weathers, we’ll expect you to carry out quality planned and reactive maintenance, investigate and diagnose complex faults, report on failing assets and to carry out repairs.

You’ll make sure health and safety procedures are at the heart of everything that’s done, procuring whatever goods and services are needed to keep things flowing at the best possible value for our customers and us.

You will have proven electrical experience in an industrial environment including mechanical repairs of pumps and gearboxes, fabrication, and machining.

It is essential you have served a electrical apprenticeship or equivalent NVQ, complemented by ONC/BTEC or City and Guilds parts 1 and 2.

Please be aware that its very much a field based position with an element of workshop based activities as well.

You’ll be an organised, customer service focused, flexible team player, with good communication skills and used to working on your own initiative efficiently planning your own work. And, of course, you will be keen to develop a rewarding career and be the best you can be.

As you can see, it’s a highly varied role, with big responsibilities. That’s why we’ve put together a great package to reward you. It starts with a competitive basic salary plus we pay relevant standby and overtime rates as you will be required to be part of a standby roster.

We’ll give you a fully expensed van, laptop for scheduling and recording of work together with all the tools and protective clothing you need. We’ll also make sure you’re fully trained in Health & Safety.
