We are currently growing and are now looking for that special person to join our team. 

About the role:

If you enjoy variation in your job, interacting with customers, solving problems and working as part of a team then this role could be for you! The role primarily involves traveling to our various customers sites and carrying out safety inspections, testing and tagging on all applicable electrical equipment used in the workplace. Whilst on our customers sites you will also be required to estimate material costs and quantities for carrying out repairs to electrical equipment that has failed the testing. If you have the relevant EWRB registration you will also be required to carry out the repairs.

We are happy to talk to people looking for both part time and full time work as we potentially have options for both. The hours worked can vary depending on our customers business so flexibility is an important part of this role. The role is based in Auckland although travel may be required from time to time. Remuneration will be discussed with successful applicants.

  • Performing repairs where possible on faulty / unsafe equipment along with modifications / repairs to existing electrical systems. This involves estimating the material costs and quantities to carry out the repairs.
  • Liaising with clients to carry out testing on their equipment while reducing the equipment downtime and inconvenience in the workplace.
