Full Time

Cathcart Energy are recruiting for a Service Team Leader for onshore Wind Turbines in Egersund near Stavanger in Norway.

This is an opportunity to work with one of the leading companies in the Large Wind sector.

The role will involve leading the team and direct hands on work servicing and maintaining Turbines in Wind Farms in the local area. The service centre from which you will be working is in Egersund and you will need to live or relocate to a commutable distance from there.

You will be working at height and so need to be confident in that environment but all appropriate training courses will be given if needed.

This role will primarily require Electrical maintenance skills and experience ideally with heavy industrial equipment. If you have Mechanical experience as well this will be a great asset but it is not required and my client won't consider candidates who do not have Electrical experience.

Specifically you will need to have experience with 3 phase systems, electrical fault finding and electrical systems maintenance.

The Team Lead aspects of the role include working with the Regional Supervisor to manage the team and ensure maximum up time of all turbines in the area. This will include resource planning, rota allocation, material control and inspections. You will need to be able to demonstrate prior team leading experience.

You will be the contact for local customers, sub contractors and suppliers and so good customer facing skills will be required.

If you have worked in the wind industry before this will be an advantage but electrical engineering experience with the armed forces, aviation, heavy plant, factory and manufacturing are all good potential backgrounds for this role.

Candidates who only have domestic and commercial electrician experience will not be considered.

You will need to have a driving licence for this role but will have access to company vehicles for your work.

All candidates will need to be fluent in English and ideally Norwegian or Swedish as well.

If you would like to find out more about this position and to be considered please contact Luke Westendarp or Sigrid Carstairs on +44 (0)131 510 9100 and apply with your latest CV.
