This is a great opportunity for a qualified solar electrician with a good track-record of maintenance work to take on a responsible position within a thriving business.

About the role

The main function of the role is to oversee the day-to-day operation of a portfolio of plants spread throughout the Oxfordshire area, and ensure safe operation.

Your duties will be to manage the preventive and reactive maintenance, dispatch relevant specialists to the respective plants, tend to the sites when the need arises and provide support for any issues that come up.
