Summary of vacancy

Are you an Electrician or Electrical technician, with both production assembly and maintenance experience? Would you like a varied role, working on a range of water treatment equipment, with an opportunity to learn new skills?

Bringing together like minded people and experienced professionals, we continue to develop advanced technologies to solve the world's most complex challenges related to water scarcity, quality, productivity, the environment and energy.

What will you be doing as an Assembly / Maintenance Electrician?

Your core responsibilities will be the final assembly of skid and container mounted water treatment equipment, along routine facility maintenance tasks. Working alongside the plant operations team, this will involve preventative and reactive electrical maintenance on Mobile Water treatment equipment, as regeneration and development on the plant itself, with specific tasks including:

  • Work from a range of technical drawings and documents with limited technical supervision
  • Install control panels, 415VAC power panels, drives and instrumentation onto large water treatment systems along with the required cabling.
  • Install steel cable management systems and PVC conduit
  • Complete testing of installed systems as required by project quality plan
  • Complete facility based maintenance tasks, such as lighting repairs, PAT and basic troubleshooting.

We provide EHS training courses to ensure all required risk assessment, lockout and permit procedures are understood, to enable you to work effectively with our teams of mechanical fitters and electricians. Given the nature of the role, there will be the expectation for some evening and weekend overtime, plus the opportunity for occasional travel to customer sites and to coordinate on-site contractors.

What will you need and what can you gain? (Experience and qualifications)

With a background in industrial electrical works, you’ll have excellent communication skills and the ability to work both independently and within a team. You’ll need the self-motivation and flexibility to work towards both individual and collective goals, along with technical knowledge and qualifications that include:

  • Ideally apprentice trained with an NVQ3 in Electrical based subject and / or City & Guilds Level 3 in electrical installations (or equivalent)
  • 17th or ideally 18th Edition Wiring Regulations

Beneficial experience would be:

  • City and Guilds 2391 – Electrical testing and inspection
  • Experience configuring instruments and drives
  • PLC / control system troubleshooting
  • Water treatment industry experience would be advantageous.

Coming from an environment that’s given you a strong understanding of EHS and Quality awareness, you will need good general computer literacy but SUEZ invests in its staff and will provide training and development opportunities.
