People like you.

So what exactly are we looking for?

Qualified as a First Call Operative, our Emergency Lead Engineers are our frontline
response to gas escapes. Working on contracted and emergency jobs you’ll be happy
working alone and during unsociable hours whilst all the time being comfortable liaising
directly with customers and the emergency services. You’ll also carry out the scheduled
installation, replacement and maintenance of gas meters for both domestic and
commercial properties. Are you Gas Safe qualified? Have you got experience with
installation and maintenance of gas equipment? With a constant focus on the safety
of both life and property, you will reflect the integrity of Gas Distribution Operations
within the communities we serve.

Who are you?

You will have good knowledge and experience of gas appliances; testing, purging and
the commissioning of pipework. Ever representing the communities we serve, you will
be comfortable engaging with the public to ensure that our customers are always looked
after and kept safe. Safety is our number one priority, so you’ll need a good
understanding of Standards, Legislation, Codes of Practice, Unsafe Situations and
other statutory requirements covering the gas industry. If you have a good understanding
of health and 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.
