Due to continued growth, our client is looking for dynamic people to join their team.
The job of the electrician tends to fall under one of three categories. These are installation (installing and testing wiring systems in the home and on building sites); maintenance (looking after and testing electrical equipment often in heavy industry and commerce); and production (using diagrams to construct electronic appliances and electrical devices)
Depending on the type of electrician, day-to-day work can range from installing CCTV, testing the wiring on a construction site or installing new electrics domestically (housing).
The job is especially suited to those who are good with customers, analytical, adaptable and practical.
Applicants will have to pass a colour vision test, and good GCSEs in mathematics, physics and English are an advantage. The prospects are excellent as there is currently a shortage of electricians in the south. Expect to start on around £30,000 per year, with salaries rising to between £34,000 and £38,000 quickly with experience.

They follow architect’s drawings in order to install wiring systems in a building and then they connect switches, light fittings and sockets to this system. Our electricians are required to think on their feet and advise the clients on the best solutions for the required project.

• Maintaining equipment and systems
• Installing wiring systems, (new build and refurbishments)
