You will be an experienced generator field service engineer with strong knowledge both electrically and mechanically of one or more of the following diesel generators: FG Wilson, MWM Detuz, Broadcrown, SDMO, CAT, Cummins, Aska, Mitsubishi, John Deere, Perkins, Scania, Atlas Copco etc…
An engineer with experience in gas generation would be of interest to us but this is not essential.
Depending upon experience and qualifications this role would command a salary of between £12.00 to £17.00 per hour with a guaranteed 40 hour week + overtime, other benefits and an on call allowance.
At PPSPower we run an engineer development structure so that there is a clear path and a commitment to training.
All engineers are paid from door-to-door. They log in to our systems to start traveling to the first job and then log off when they arrive home from the last job.
This is detailed as follows:
On average our engineers benefit from 10 hrs overtime a week. This is usually achieved through planned works. This is paid at time and a half at the evenings and on Saturday and double time on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
There's also a regional on-call rota that would be 1 in 5. So every fifth week you should expect to be available to be called out. An £80 payment is made to anyone on call irrespective of whether hey are called out or not. If called out the above overtime rates would apply.
Below are a couple of examples on potential take home pay:
A Lead Engineer (London Area):
A Trainee Engineer (Other Area's):
PPSPower proud themselves on a supportive and fun culture. All employees have regular health checks, access to an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and our Managing Director has trained himself as a Mental Health First Aider.
Employee retention is strong. Promotions are always sought internally before we recruit.
Our customer service is consistently high as the management team believe if our employees are happy our customers are happy.
Oh, and you should be prepared for odd fancy dress day in aid of a worthy charity now and again. The Christmas sing-along video is always great fun as well!
