Electronics Technician (Maintenance)

c£25,764 – £31,894 pa dependent upon experience, plus overtime and a benefits package including a Civil Service pension

Location: Harwich, Essex with national travel

As the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar we deliver reliable, efficient and cost-effective aids to navigation such as lighthouses, lightvessels, buoys and radio navigation, ensuring thousands of mariners navigate their way safely around the UK’s busiest waters. Proud of our reputation afforded to us by many centuries of dedication to the nation’s maritime infrastructure, we are a forward-thinking organisation and it is our ability to meet new challenges and the changing requirements of the modern mariner that keeps us relevant and effective.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a technical team responsible for the maintenance and repair of our lighthouses, depots and other installations. You will be working on a wide range of electronic and electrical systems and equipment. The working environments vary according to the site however the majority are off shore and involve difficult access terrain and working at heights. This, coupled with the physical nature of the duties involved, will require appropriate levels of health and fitness. Modes of transport to access the installations can be a combination of road transport, boat and helicopter.

To be considered for this post, it is essential that you have a BTEC level 3 or equivalent in an Electronic based engineering discipline. Previous experience in a technical maintenance role is also essential, along with a thorough working knowledge of health and safety legislation. You must possess good IT skills and written communication skills including report writing. A working knowledge of electrical systems and circuits would be advantageous.

The post will be based at our Harwich offices, but will involve extensive UK travel with extended time away from home.

The starting salary is dependent upon experience and is scalable as above, increasing via progression through the competency framework attached to this position. Due to the remote locations of our work, non-guaranteed overtime is available and averages around £5,000 – £8,000 per annum.
