  • Opportunity to develop your skills in areas such as Project Management

This is a great role for an Electrically qualified person who is looking to advance their career off the tools without having to move into sales. 

It’s a role which calls on the technical skills you have acquired but allows you to develop your softer skills in other areas such as project management, contract management, sites audits, administration, customer liaison and management.  It also allows entry into the Medium and High Voltage sector which offers good job stability, personal development and job progression.  Importantly it has a good balance of office and field work


The Role

You will be part of a team of five in the New Connections team.  Your core role is to design, manage and commission new Network connections and maintain existing Network connections; including domestic, commercial and industrial developments.  This involves interaction with industrial businesses, developers, public & private organisations, and the general public regarding any connections to the Power Network.

It involves working closely with the customer to document their requirements, establishing and managing the resulting contract and project plans, undertake site visits and audits, and importantly manage the relevant health and safety responsibilities.  This involves working with the Design Engineers, Councils, Project Engineers, Contractors and the Customer to ensure all of the ducks are in a row for a smooth connection and happy, connected clients.  



First and foremost, you need to have an electrical background, ideally Trade certified.

Secondly you need to have good communication and people skills to work closely with the internal team, contractors, suppliers and to nurture strong relationships with existing and new customers.  This includes oral and written communication skills, including negotiation and conflict resolution.
