    • Running cables and trays
    • Working with the design team to ensure all schematics and cable schedules are correct and updated
    • Carrying out electrical testing of plant and PAT testing of company portable appliances
    • Carrying out repairs to workshop plant and machinery

This will involve good communication, often across multiple disciplines to deliver customer requirements efficiently and effectively. The ideal candidate will have excellent problem solving skills and take a positive, proactive and enthusiastic approach to delivering to tight deadlines.
