Fire Alarm and Security Systems Engineer

A safe and secure career…

Business expansion across the UK has led to the opening of a new branch in the Teesside area, for reputable market leading organisation Jackson Fire and Security Ltd. The new branch provides an exciting career opportunity for a self-motivated and highly skilled Multi-Disciplined Engineer with experience in security and/or fire alarm systems to undertake a varied and busy role.

You’ll be provided with comprehensive training, head office support and personal development. Focusing on a prescribed regional territory, you will spend more time at local customer sites rather than travelling across the UK. You will be encouraged to work independently, managing your own workload and building good relationships with customers.  

Who will I be working with?

Jackson Fire and Security is one of the leading independent fire and security solutions providers and has been rapidly expanding the operations across the UK. The company has grown steadily since it formed in 1991 and is now one of the most respected solutions led companies operating in the field. Offering installation and maintenance services, Jackson offers a wide range of solutions from basic fire extinguishers through to large commercial installations. Recent investment at the head office included commissioning of a £30,000 bespoke training room enabling Engineers to refresh their fire and security alarm repair and maintenance skills. The facility boasts seven complete alarm systems including Siemens and Honeywell for new recruits to train on.

So, what will the role of Fire Alarm & Security Systems Engineer entail?

Tasks will include;

  • Installing, servicing and commissioning small to medium sized fire and intruder alarms, CCTV and access control systems
  • Providing certification for installed and serviced systems to comply with relevant British Standards
  • Identifying potential opportunities where customers could benefit from using additional services
  • Managing own diary to ensure allocated work is completed on time
  • Attending the Teesside office for weekly meetings and stock collection

What will I need to be considered?

  • Experience with installing, servicing and commissioning fire and/or security systems (training will be provided for the other systems where required)
  • Client focused approach with excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • Strong attention to detail and commercial awareness
  • Enthusiasm and professional attitude
  • Ability to manage own work load with minimal supervision
  • Full UK driving licence

Due to the nature of the business, successful applicants will be subject to a satisfactory DBS and BS7858 checks.

What will I receive in return?

You’ll have the opportunity to join an ambitious business and have full support to help you achieve success, with opportunity for career progression as the branch team expands.

Salary: Initially £26,000-£32,000, level dependent on experience, plus an attractive bonus scheme.
