Electrical Technicians - Wind Turbines - ORKNEY
When you hear the phrase "Island Hopping", what's the first thing that comes to mind? A couple of weeks on a yacht in the Mediterranean? A Caribbean cruise with as many Pina Coladas as your liver will handle? Or something else?
Keep those places in mind but take the location much further north and drop the temperature by about 25 degrees.
Then swap the Pina Colada for a flask of tea and your flowery shirt for a hefty jacket.
Finally, imagine yourself high up in the air at the top of a wind turbine.
If that's the kind of mental picture that makes you smile, then you're going to love this job.
We're looking for Electrical Technicians to join our wind turbine team, based in Orkney. It's a shift-based role working 8 days on and 6 off, so you'll also have plenty of opportunities to explore this unique group of islands.
As a time-served electrical technician with a minimum level 3 qualification, you'll be maintaining, fault-finding, and repairing wind turbines in Orkney.
Along with the electrical qualifications, you can probably imagine that a sense of adventure and a head for heights will be essential for this role. Along with a sturdy set of underwear! Given the nature of a wind turbine, i.e. it's tall, you'll need to be physically fit and comfortable working at height.
Prior experience with wind turbines would be a great feature, but we know it's unlikely, so we will provide the training you need to work on our market-leading machinery.
On top of the basic salary of £27,966, we pay working pattern allowances which will boost your pay to £32,055. On top of that, there are opportunities to increase your income further with overtime, training, and travel allowances. Our standard day is 07:30 to 18:30 with a 30 min lunch break (10.5 hours total).
So, if you're already based in Orkney or would relish the life-changing opportunity to live and work there, contact us on 44 (0)1905 381320
