About the Department
Operations are responsible for keeping the lights on; we are at the front line on the Network. If we find a fault, it is our responsibility to respond to the fault, and dispatch our skilled teams to fix it as quickly as possible. We work in all hours, and through all weathers, ensuring our customers are never without power.
What is the Role?
As an HGV driver, you’ll be responsible for undertaking driving duties on overhead line works as well as other related ad hoc tasks as required. This will involve standby duties to support the business in responding to faults overnight and at weekends; on a rotated basis.
What do I need?
You must have previous experience working in a similar role and hold a current HGV driving license. As the duties involved in this role can be physically demanding, and will involve working in all weathers, a ‘can-do’ attitude and excellent team working skills are essential. An NRSWA Street works Ticket, HIAB Training and/or any experience of operating plant with relevant tickets/qualifications, are not essential, but would be advantageous.
Above all you’ll have a high appreciation for safety in everything you do, and work with your team to promote a strong safety culture.
You’ll also need a full, current driving license.
