Systems Technician - Electronics (Ireland)
Home/Field Based (covering a region from Kilrush to Rosslare)
€32,755 - €38,535 DOE Plus Excellent Benefits
Our client is a charity that provides a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service and a seasonal lifeguard service.
Whatever the weather, equipment and crew need to operate to the very highest possible technical standards. It will be up to you to ensure this. This is an ideal opportunity to use your skills working on state-of-the-art lifeboats and associated equipment throughout Ireland and occasionally the UK.
You will become part of a close team working with Station Mechanics, Contractors and other Technical staff to carry out planned maintenance, fault diagnosis and defect repairs on all of the Electronic/Electrical equipment within the region. It’s a chance to really make a lifesaving impact on the vital maintenance of lifeboats and their equipment.
Our client is looking for a time-served Systems Technician with Electronic/Electrical experience, preferably within a marine environment. Your in-depth knowledge of mechanical/electrical systems will be key.
Part of your duties as a Systems Technician will include trials of existing, repaired or new equipment, so you will need to possess and demonstrate excellent Electronic diagnostic and fault-finding skills, and a working knowledge of Marine Electrical/Mechanical systems.
You should have a desire to stay current in the use of existing technology and a willingness to learn and be involved in the roll out of new equipment which is constantly changing within our client’s Search and Rescue equipment.
To be considered, you will need:
- A time-served engineering apprenticeship or experience in mechanical, electrical and/or electronic engineering
- An NVQ Level 3 qualification (or equivalent) in a mechanical, electrical or electronic discipline
- A full driving licence
At least one of the following is also key:
- Wide knowledge of diesel and petrol engines/electrical systems
- Marine or plant experience
- Experience of construction/modification of electronic equipment
- Experience of the repair and maintenance of electronic equipment
As this is a sea-going appointment, you will need to satisfy the institution's medical and eyesight standards.
Although not essential, a towing licence would be preferred. Experience of the following would also be beneficial, although training will be provided where needed: PAT testing, use of lorry mounted cranes, mobile scaffolding, a driver CPC and a forklift truck licence.
This role is suitable for someone that is self-motivated and willing to go that extra mile, working either as part of a team or under their own initiative to the highest of standards with a first fix approach to return assets back on service as soon as possible. The candidate will need to take on new ideas and undertake training.
The role requires you to be part of a duty rota and be expected, when required, to work unsociable hours. As this is a field based role, you will be required to travel throughout Ireland and occasionally the UK.
This role comes with a provided van and other excellent benefits including 26 days’ holiday, excellent pension scheme with life cover, health cash plan and more.
The closing date for applications is the 21st October 2018.
Our client’s staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. They respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within their teams, and consider it essential to help them deliver a world-class lifesaving service. They are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, they also look for applicants who share their commitment to living their values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping them work towards their goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using their expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
