Department:  Water Services Contracts
Salary (£):  Base of up to £33K (Average earnings of circa £40K)

Electrician - Base of up to £33K (Average earnings of circa £40K)

 

LET’S CUT STRAIGHT TO IT

 

Severn Trent Services currently have multiple exciting opportunities for Electricians to join our growing team. These roles will involve working and travelling between our Water and Wastewater assets on various contracts across the East of the UK.

 

Want to do the best work of your life? Playing your part in making a big difference to the environment and communities we serve. Our people make Severn Trent a truly exciting and inclusive place to work – a place where you can be yourself and let your skills shine.

 

If you have an NVQ level 3 (or equivalent) in an electrical discipline coupled with a positive attitude and appetite to learn, we would love to hear from you...

 

LET’S TELL YOU MORE

 

In this role you will be:

 

  • Responsible for ensuring that unsafe electrical installations are managed safely to minimize any risk - whilst identifying the problem and taking remedial action as required.
  • Advising the associated Area Manager and Supervisor of any existing or new electrical installations that are unsafe or that do not meet current regulatory or industry best practice standards.
  • Providing accurate and detailed reports to enable contractors to cost any larger remedial works required.
  • Maintaining site standards to food grade level, whilst keeping a level of professional expertise to ensure your knowledge is up to date with current regulations and requirements
  • Operating and maintaining the highest Health and Safety standards in accordance with all company policy and procedures

 

In exchange we’ll provide a company van & fuel card to allow you to start work from home whilst also investing in your personal development, by including Compex training, that, once passed qualifies you for an additional allowance.

 

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

 

As a minimum we’re looking for an NVQ level 3 (or equivalent) in an electrical discipline, transferable skills from other industries, and a full UK Driving Licence - however also having your 18th Edition alongside experience of carrying out electrical inspection, installation, and testing in a commercial and industrial setting would be highly desirable.

 

Don’t worry if you haven’t worked in the utilities industry before, we will provide relevant training, allowing you to thrive in your new career.

 

Of course, it’s important that we attract the right skill sets, and those with the right experience but we value character, positivity and a caring attitude in equal weight.

 

We want people who show up and roll their sleeves up. Restless spirits who are ready to be part of something bigger, who care, who really care... because when you really care, you’ll go above and beyond. When you really care you don’t just talk about it, you do more.

 

We welcome people from all walks of life and celebrate individuality as we know diverse minds, experiences and backgrounds help us to learn and better serve our communities. We employ thousands of people from across our community who really care about what they do. Because that is how we do what we do.

 

And when it comes to inclusion, we’re making sure we keep up the progress with our wonderful working groups – LGBTQ+, Women in Operations & STEM, Disability and Ethnicity; who help us do just that.

 

We do more, because we care.
