Electrical Engineer - Wind Turbine Maintenance, Newcastle

Cathcart Energy are recruiting for an Electrical Service Engineer for onshore Wind Turbines in Washington, Tyne and Wear
The role will involve servicing and maintenance of Turbines in Wind Farms around the Tyne and Wear area. This role is easily commutable from Newcastle or Sunderland and you will need to live locally in order to perform the role or be willing to relocate to the area.
The role will for be standard daytime hours with no shift work but there is an on call rota which is roughly one week in three where you will need to be available until 8pm for call out.
You will be working at height and so need to be confident in that environment, but all appropriate training courses will be given if needed.
This role will primarily require Electrical Engineering skills and experience ideally with heavy industrial equipment. If you have Mechanical experience as well this will be a great asset, but it is not required and my client won't consider candidates who do not have Electrical experience.
Specifically, you will need to have experience with 3 phase systems, electrical fault finding and electrical systems maintenance. If you have experience with PLCs and control systems that will also strengthen your application.
If you have worked in the wind industry before this will be an advantage but electrical engineering experience with the armed forces, aviation, heavy plant, factory and manufacturing are all good potential backgrounds for this role.
The salary is highly competitive and will be significantly increased by generous on call and overtime bonuses.
There is a fitness test as part of the selection process and a good level of fitness is required in order to pass the health and safety regulations for working at height. You will also need to have a driving licence for this role.
