About the Department

Operations are responsible for keeping the lights on; we are at the front line on the Network. If we find a fault, it is our responsibility to respond to the fault, and dispatch our skilled teams to fix it as quickly as possible. We work in all hours, and through all weathers, ensuring our customers are never without power.

What is the Role?

We are looking for a Cable Layer to join our team in Poole. In this hands-on role, you'll work as part of a team, reinstating excavations in highways and private sites which are necessary to maintain our distribution network, ensuring good team communication and that safe working practices are always adhered to.

Working outside in all weather conditions, to strict timescales, your work must comply with regulations we abide by, and you'll be able to deliver excellent customer service where reactive maintenance is required. This is a physically demanding role, involving extensive reinstatement works on the highway and private land. Working closely with your manager, you may also be asked to assist with other ad hoc projects.

What Do I Need?

To be successful, you'll ideally have some experience with reinstating techniques including Tarmacadam, modular services, slabs and concrete. You'll also ideally have experience of working on public highways involving setting up and taking down temporary traffic signals to the code of practice and working alongside hotbox, concrete, and grab lorries.

Due to the requirements of this role, a full UK driving license with a 7.5t entitlement, is required and HGV entitlement is preferred.

We're committed to ensuring we offer our people a great place to work, with competitive salary, contributory pension plan and benefits package. Why not watch our short employee benefits video to see what else is on offer?
