Maintenance Technician Electrical

Posted 16 September by NHS Business Services Authority

The Estates Department is responsible for the operation and maintenance of engineering services, plant, building fabric and grounds and gardens across a large acute hospital site. We presently support services to more than 500 beds. The site is busy and consists of a mix of new and older buildings. This is a challenging time and an excellent opportunity to join a team of Estates Management Professionals.

Candidates will have served an apprenticeship or undertaken other suitable training in an Electrical engineering / maintenance environment. candidates will have attained a BTEC ONC or Equivalent in Electrical engineering . Consideration will be given to candidates who present a strong application but who do not hold the above qualification, and who are willing to undertake an appropriate course of study to obtain it.

You will be able to demonstrate significant experience in the maintenance of mechanical and electrical plant and services. Specifically you should have an understanding of areas such as Building Management Systems, HVAC systems and controls, Electrical, Steam and Water Distribution Systems within buildings.

You must be able to demonstrate a flexible approach, the ability to organise and plan work, problem solve, work on your own initiative, be able to take “ownership” of key areas of work and be an effective communicator.

Previous experience of the supervision of direct labour and contractors is desirable.

The Trust is introducing increased flexibility towards employee’s hours of work. Currently a Monday to Friday work pattern 8.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m. applies and will be followed for the purpose of site familiarisation. There will then be an expectation and requirement for the successful applicant to work an extended pattern of flexible hours consistent with moves towards 24/7 working.

The successful candidate will be required to provide a ‘return to work’ commitment outside of normal working hours and must be prepared to participate in an ‘on-call’ rota if required.

We offer an induction programme to familiarise you with the work and the site, appropriate in-service training where necessary, staff development and progression, uniform, up to 33 days holiday and a company pension scheme.
