In this role you’ll help with preventive maintenance working techniques and practices and be able to bring significant experience of working with industrial equipment (mechanical drives, gearboxes, hydraulic systems, pumps). You’ll undertake fault diagnostics and have the ability to resolve issues in a timely manner.  You’ll be expected to know how to work with process control systems and have a working knowledge of industrial electrical installation requirements and standards.  In Severn Trent we use a number of different devices on the job so your experience working with various IT systems will be great.





To be a success in this role, along with your experience we will be looking for you to have obtained a NVQ level 3 mechanical qualification and also have completed a relevant apprenticeship to help you in the role. A full UK driving licence will be required for the role.

We want people who show up and roll their sleeves up.

We do more, because we care.
