My client is looking for electrical engineers with the ability to sometimes install, service and repair EV charging points across North London and adjacent counties (Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Essex and other regions as required). The public will sometimes also want to talk to you about EVs and EV charging, and occasionally our customers see you and want to engage about my client’s and EV experience. You will also support our Sales team with pre-sales surveys and estimating costs for on-street and oﬀ-street installations.
Regardless of your previous electrical experience, if you want to help move the world to green energy, my client wants to hear from you. We are a fast-growing start-up and our dynamic and innovative culture reﬂects this.
The role will be mainly remote as this saves on commuting and gives us a calm space to work, but sometimes we like to meet face to face. You should expect to travel into the oﬃce in London approximately once a month or whenever the requirement arises.
Whilst based from home, ideally you will have some storage space at home for spare components. Initially, a mileage allowance will be paid on your own car after which time a company van will be
made available for your use; you must remove your tools from your van at night.
You will work a 37.5-hour week, with time-in-lieu granted for those times when it makes sense to complete a job whilst on-site. Rarely, we may ask you to attend to an emergency issue nearby outside of oﬃce hours (e.g., a locked cable or charge-point knocked over).
