Role Responsibility:

This role and contract sit within our Facilities Management sector of G4S where we aim to improve the lives of people across the UK and Ireland by creating productive, safe and smooth working environments.

This is an exciting time to join the G4S Facilities Management Team at Hinkley Point C, working on the largest construction site in Europe.

As the first new nuclear power station to be built in the UK in over 20 years; Hinkley Point C in Somerset will provide low-carbon electricity for around 6 million homes and bring lasting benefits to the UK economy.

Construction and operation of Hinkley Point C will create 25,000 employment opportunities, up to 1,000 apprenticeships and 64% of the project’s construction value is predicted to go to UK companies. There are currently over 4,000 workers on site.

Role Overview

The Air Conditioning Engineer role will be a hands-on position where you will be required to respond to and carry out planned preventative maintenance (PPMs) and reactive works as standard across the range of first class temporary welfare facilities supporting the HPC project.

The successful candidate will be mobile across a range of HPC sites where you will diagnose faults on all types of AC systems, ranging from standard back-to-back splits to bigger VRV/VRF and close control systems. The opportunity may also arise to carry out installation works dependent on skills and experience.

Although the role will involve predominantly air conditioning, an understanding of extraction and supply ventilation, from kitchen AHU’s to MVHR heat recovery systems and ASHP would be advantageous, as would knowledge of navigating a BMS onsite system.

Our aim as an FM team is to maintain the equipment on our sites to the highest standard. When problems occur you will rectify or escalate faults accordingly in a safe, effective and efficient manner.

There will be a responsibility to manage your own time and deadlines within a set timeframe of actions. You will co-ordinate this through the onsite CAFM system and ensure works are closed out using detailed reporting outlining works carried out and any further remedial actions required. These actions will be completed using a company issued personal tablet and mobile phone system. You will have an individual responsibility to deliver on PPMs and breakdown tasks within agreed SLAs

You will build good and collaborative working relationships with all our teams, including electrical, plumbing, maintenance technicians, general duties assistants and on site helpdesk team.

This is a full time role working Monday to Friday, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, with call out and overtime available
