About the Department

SSE Enterprise Contracting is one of the UK's largest Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) contractors with a product/service portfolio ranging from M&E LV, HV, Instrumentation, Street Lighting, Facilities Management through to Combined Heat and Power solutions.

What is the Role?

You'll be part of a mobile team of Electricians who will specialise on periodic inspection and testing on contracts that SSE have recently won for our National Compliance Business. As with much of the electrical compliance type business some of the work is within the normal working day, but applicants also must be flexible and adaptable, being prepared to work in less sociable hours to cater for the needs of our clients.

The role will involve responsibility for conducting all aspects of fixed wiring electrical inspection and testing, emergency lighting inspections, fixed appliance testing, energy efficiency monitoring, conducting thermal imaging surveys and class-leading electrical installation conditioning reports. This must be completed to be fully compliant with 2018 BS7671 regulations.

What Do I Need? 

To be successful, you'll be able to demonstrate periodic inspection and test experience. You'll be a qualified electrician and hold an inspection and test qualification e.g. City and Guilds 2391 and be certified to 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations e.g. City and Guilds 2382 BS7671 18th Edition.

A full UK driving licence is vital for this role as well as a passion for safety and the ability to work well in a team as well as independently, the role involves travelling within the South & South-west region.
