Company overview Highly awarded plumbing & heating company in the UK and retain a loyal and satisfied customer base in our area. We are a company that takes pride in our staff and the integrity and quality of our work. Unlike almost all other heating installers we employ all our staff as permanent PAYE employees, with no sub-contractors and hence no hidden costs to be passed onto our customers. Our business is and has always been, driven around delivering the highest quality of service and aftercare. The customer is always our top priority. We are a growing and successful business with office branches in Orpington and Beckenham servicing the Kent and South London areas.

The operations department is the nucleus of the company, covering every aspect of managing the day to day needs of our customers and our engineers. As our company has grown, so has the workload involved in managing the daily workload. We now have 32 full-time employees across our office staff and engineers, and we carry out more than 900 plumbing & heating jobs a month. We have an in-house software suite (“Surefire”) which we use to run our company as a one-stop-shop, from taking customer details, booking a job, ordering parts and taking payment.

Role Description We are looking for a diligent, organised individual with excellent customer service skills who take pride in their work and is not satisfied with a job unless it is done to the best of their ability. The individual should display attention to detail and be keen to grow with the company, with a passion to learn and develop. We promote an open environment at works where everyone's opinions are valued and suggestions for improvement are always embraced.
