OVERVIEW & ROLE DESCRIPTION

  • Carry out service work on sewage pumping stations and sewage treatment systems.
  • Install single and three phase pumps and associated equipment.
  • Undertake fault finding work and also work on control panels.
  • Control van stocks to ensure maximum efficiency.
  • Working to relevant Health & Safety Practices while on site.
