What is the Role?

In this role you'll be working on LV/HV networks and associated plant as well as providing technical support during early sales engagement. You'll also undertake full SAP operational duties ranging from operational switching, network control and creating and implementing protection settings. There will also be a requirement to provide project management expertise across a range of HV Projects.

Experience and authorisation up to 33kV would be advantageous but not essential.

In addition, you'll have extensive knowledge of Switching and Network Control as well as the construction, commissioning and operation of electrical plant and equipment on all types of HV systems, including complex protection schemes and grading studies. 

Passionate about safety, you'll promote this throughout your team and to all Contractors on site, comfortably challenging any unsafe behaviours or attitudes. You'll have strong communication skills, with the ability to deliver technical training and advice to less-experienced colleagues. You will use your people-management skills to effectively achieve results from your team of direct labour and from Contractors.
