Due to significant growth in our Operations & Maintenance contracts, they are seeking an additional Approved Electrician in the south/west midlands area. You will be responsible for the coordination of all reactive and planned maintenance at utility scale PV Plants (50MW+).


You will be responsible for maintaining, inspecting and testing solar PV systems to assess and rectify performance issues, all whist adhering to BS7671.
