Installation Engineer - Special Projects

£36,000 to £38,000
Start Date

Our Special Projects department are looking to add another engineer to their team to support the rapid growth they have seen over the last 6 months.

Who are Special Projects?

Special projects deliver mechanical and electrical HVAC installation projects and exist within our Lindsey Installation division. Where they differ from our ‘main’ installation team is that they typically deal with smaller projects ranging from £1k up the value of approx £100k. They work with both commercial and domestic clients, on projects which last from one day up to 2 months. The team also pride themselves on excellent customer service, looking after their clients from initial survey right through to completion.

What is the job?

The role itself will be a lead engineer focusing solely on mechanical services, they will also be doing some surveying of new enquiries, passing information over to the office team to produce quotations.

There are big plans for the successful candidate. The Head of Special Projects hopes to develop them into the head of engineering within 1-2 years. This will involve being in charge of all the engineers, overseeing their sites, and dealing with the pricing of projects. Therefore it is important that the successful candidate possesses people management skills.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for someone who has the initiative and determination to help develop a division with huge potential.

The successful candidate will be able to

  • Demonstrate a very good knowledge of different systems.
  • Work out basic pipe routes.
  • Demonstrate a good knowledge of pipe materials used and jointing methods for them.
  • Be able to install runs and/or sections without supervision.
  • Identify and foresee potential technical problems.
  • Create and implement solutions to technical problems.
  • Have a good knowledge of different mechanical systems.
  • Utilise knowledge of how sites are run with builders, clients, etc. on larger projects.

  • Be able to take and check off deliveries.
  • Ensure all agreed deadlines are met.
  • Adhere to all Health and Safety policies and be aware of/report any breaches.
  • Carry out testing processes for different systems.
  • Where necessary, manage the project from start to finish at site level.
