Job Description

Are you an experienced Mechanical, Electrical or ICA Maintenance Engineer looking for a new challenge?

South West Water provides reliable, efficient and high-quality drinking water and wastewater services throughout Cornwall, Devon, and parts of Somerset and Dorset. We believe that by investing in the future of our region, we are not only improving the quality of life for today’s residents and visitors but are also taking responsibility for future generations. Our aim is to continually drive up standards, particularly in the areas that matter most to our customers and be amongst the best in the water industry.

We now have a number of exciting opportunities to join one of the South West's leading employers as a Maintenance Engineer in our Resources and Production team. This role will be based in our East operational area (Devon/Somerset), with frequent travel to our sites throughout the area and, when required, to our other operational areas covering Cornwall and Dorset (Bournemouth Water).

What will you be doing?

As a Maintenance Engineer in the Resources and Production section in the Drinking Water Services Department, you will be part of a flexible, regional team that will provide co-ordination and expert support to existing operational maintenance activities, depending on need and priority. You will assist in the planning, coordination and delivery of maintenance activities across Mechanical, Electrical and ICA assets, depending on your skills.

These roles require advanced hands-on maintenance knowledge in order to provide hands-on support to the Craft Maintenance team. You’ll identify root causes of plant failure and sub-optimal performance and take ownership of the resolution process.

You will also support/lead business improvement or change programmes such as those using lean/reliability centered maintenance techniques.

Whilst the roles are nominally area based you will also be required to operate flexibly across the South West Water and Bournemouth Water areas depending on operational needs. This may require travel or periods away from home.

You will be required to participate in a call-out rota.

What do you need?

  • Strong maintenance background and hands on maintenance experience including troubleshooting and resolution
  • Completed apprenticeship supported by formal qualifications e.g. City & Guilds, BTEC, ONC / HNC / HND
  • Possess wide-ranging engineering knowledge
  • Relevant and current equipment regulations competency (e.g. IEE)
  • Advanced mechanical, electrical and ICA equipment operation and maintenance
  • Use of company computer systems for office, mobile and site based activities
  • Ability to diagnose, trouble shoot and rectify operational issues

What can South West Water do for you?                                                              

In return for your hard work as one of our Maintenance Engineers, we can offer a salary range of £32,000-£38,000 per annum plus company vehicle. We also offer a range of excellent benefits, working within a team-orientated and collaborative environment, for a company that strives to be environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.
