As an Engineering Technician what can I expect to be doing?
You will have hands on experience from day one and will receive on-going training and support to enable you to play an important role in our site team.
On a daily basis you will assist to instruct our skilled workforce, maintain diaries of site activities and ensure works are carried out safely to the company's Health and Safety procedures.
One of your primary roles will be setting out on site and communicating this information to our skilled employees. Setting out is carried out using specialist equipment and can be described as the reverse of surveying. While surveying is the process of creating maps and plans of a site or area, setting out starts with plans and ends with them being turned into reality on site. You will develop the fundamental skill of taking the information from the plans and turning it into useable information for setting out.
