Job description

CLOSING DATE: 24 APRIL 2017

One of the most iconic brands within the energy network with a truly exciting future. Embracing new energy sources we continuously advance towards perfection. Representing the communities we serve, it is our diverse, agile people that drive us forward. People like you.

So what exactly are we looking for?

The role of a Repair Support Engineer is really varied. Part of a two-person team, you'll respond to gas escapes, working round-the-clock shifts to maintain supply and keep both you and our customers safe – for us, policy and procedure is of the utmost importance. You'll develop your skills and experience, working on gas mains and learning how to operate a variety of equipment. Working outdoors and liaising with the public you will be the figurehead of our business driving forward our image in the communities we serve!

Ideally coming from a street works or construction background we will expect you to be Health & Safety conscious. It would be advantageous if you have CSCS/CPCS qualifications, NRSWA or even GNO1/NCO1 accreditation.

We also want people that can engage with the public through strong customer service skills.

Who are you?

With experience of working outdoors, ideally within a manual labour environment you will relish the physical side of this job. Ever representing communities we serve, you will be comfortable with engaging with the public to ensure that our customers are always looked after and kept safe.

If you have a good understanding of Health & Safety coupled with the ability to solve technical issues – we want to hear from you!

We are looking for real team players; people that want to make a difference to the success of our business. This is an environment that caters for our customers round-the-clock, so can you work on a standby rota? Ideally you will have previous experience within a gas environment though you may be coming from another area of the utilities industry – either way, get in touch and then come and join us on our journey. As the role is mobile, we will expect you to have a full UK driving licence.

Please be aware that you will be required to be clean shaven for the effective use of breathing apparatus.

We aren’t just looking for workers here – we want our colleagues to remain engaged, be self-motivated and always ready to learn new skills.

What can you expect from us?

After all that hard work, we like to really look after you! With a starting salary of £22,260 pa, coupled with a performance related bonus, shift and call out allowances as well as additional hours payment you will have real earning potential!

Though not everything is about work – we also give you industry leading training with recognised qualifications throughout your time with us. In addition to your excellent development opportunities our package also includes a defined contribution pension scheme, 25 days holiday and a comprehensive flexible benefits scheme. Together we can plan for your future – this really is a career for life! We value and encourage diversity of thought, whatever your background. By creating an inclusive, switched-on workforce, we drive performance and deliver excellence.

Application Process

We will require an up-to-date CV with a covering letter outlining why you are applying for this position, relevant experience and what you can bring to the role. First stage shortlisting will involve a review of your CV and Covering Letter. Successful candidates will be invited to attend an assessment centre which will involve a number of activities including an interview and practical assessment.

We encourage candidates to submit their applications as early as possible as National Grid Gas Distribution's recruitment periods can and may vary. We reserve the right to remove this advert or close it to further applications at any point during the recruitment process.
