Jointers Mate

Salary: £21,403
Location: Based in Burton upon Trent, with travel around the surrounding area
E.ON is a global provider of specialised energy solutions. We're also an important trader in global commodities, working hard to make the best deals possible for our worldwide business and, ultimately, our customers.
We operate one of the largest streetlight contracting businesses in the UK, with a large presence in the Midlands and the North West. As well as providing new installations for most of the UK's housing developers, we also work for the majority of the local authorities in our areas. We're not stopping there though: we're now implementing a major new initiative to expand the operation. As part of it, we're looking for enthusiastic, hard-working Jointers Mates to join our team.
Organised and efficient, you'll be working with an LV Jointer, helping install LV services to streetlights and other highway assets, as well some domestic properties. You'll also be assisting with general site work where necessary. Safety is our priority in all these activities, so as well as being first aid qualified, it's essential you have experience of assessing risks and working according to strict safety guidelines.
It's an outdoor role that will often be physically demanding, so it's vital you're trained for it. That means you'll need to be qualified as a Jointers Mate, ideally under NERS.  It's also vital you're authorised to work on at least one UK DNO network, ideally Electricity North West. Previous experience of the street lighting industry, including operating machinery and working on the highway would be an advantage.
It's an exciting opportunity because there'll be the chance for real development here. Learning from the LV Jointer, you'll constantly be honing your skills and advancing your understanding. And what's more, you'll be paid to do it.

Essential skill requirements
• Have completed a formal Jointers Mates training course and hold a current DNO as well as an NRSWA card.
• Clear understanding of the safety precautions for working near live LV cables and in the vicinity of DNO equipment.
• Hold a valid CSCS accreditation, preferably via the Highways Lighting Agency
• An understanding of the Highways Lighting business and a general appreciation of the Distribution network
• Full UK driving licence.
Desirable skill requirements
•A current and relevant First Aid and Manual Handling certificate
