Company Information Cathcart Energy

Job Description Cathcart Energy are recruiting for Electrical Service Engineers to maintain onshore Wind Turbines in various locations around the UK.

These roles are well suited to electrical maintenance engineers with an armed forces background. The client has previously hired many candidates for these roles who have experience working on ground equipment on bases for the RAF and Army as well as many Submariners and other Navy electrical engineers.

The role will for be standard daytime hours with no shift work but there is an on call rota which is roughly one week in three where you will need to be available until 8pm for call out.

Due to the nature of the call out response times required, all candidates will need to live within an hours drive from the service centres which are in the following locations:

- Peterborough
- East Anglia
- Durham
- Inverness
- South Wales
- Argyll & Bute
- Livingston
- Preston

Candidates who will need to relocate will be gladly considered and depending on your situation some support for relocation may be offered.

You will be working at height and so need to be confident in that environment but all appropriate training courses will be given if needed.

This role will primarily require Electrical Engineering skills and experience ideally with heavy industrial equipment. If you have Mechanical experience as well this will be a great asset but it is not required and my client won’t consider candidates who do not have Electrical experience.

Specifically you will need to have experience with 3 phase systems, electrical fault finding and electrical systems maintenance. If you have experience with PLCs and control systems this will also strengthen your application.

If you have worked in the wind industry before this will be an advantage but electrical engineering experience with the armed forces, marine, heavy plant, factory and manufacturing are all good potential backgrounds for this role.

Candidates who only have domestic and commercial electrician experience will not be considered.

The salary is £25,000 to £27,000 and will be significantly increased by generous on call and overtime bonuses and average actual earnings are around £38,000.

There is also a significant uplift on base salary for the East Anglia and Peterborough role due to higher cost of living in this location.

You will need to have a driving licence for this role.
Qualifications Required You will need to have a driving licence for this role.
