Does the idea of covering a smaller patch sound like the dream?

We are working exclusively with an M&E Contractor who is offering just that:


What’s on offer?

  • A salary of £33-36k
  • You will only be giving 30 minutes or your own time each way
  • A call out rota of 1-7 and with you only being the 2nd engineer on every other call out this means even more free time for you
  • Genuine opportunities for training and progression – the company will happily pay for you to train in other areas and promote internally – all the contracts managers there started off on the tools, with more currently being progressed into supervisory positions
  • Monday to Friday, 8-5, stable hours
  • Various discounts and offers through a company scheme

What will you need?

  • Experience working as a mechanical maintenance engineer or commercial gas engineer
  • A minimum of NVQ Level 2 in plumbing or a mechanical discipline, ideally with domestic and commercial gas tickets, but if you don’t have gas, this is something the company is happy to put you through – saving you thousands of pounds if this is something you have considered doing yourself
  • Experience of mechanical maintenance within commercial settings – you’ll need to know your way around a plant room
  • The role will involve some work in schools so you’ll need to do an enhanced DBS check upon starting the role
  • Full manual driving license – up to 6 points is fine
  • Your own hand tools – all other tools will be supplied
