Installation Engineer - Audio Visual, Networking & CCTV
Practical Audio Visual is a, specialist installer of AV, Networking and CCTV equipment, with a reputation for high-quality and innovative work. Based near Burton-on-Trent, we are a family-led firm with a national customer base across the public and private sector, including corporate, universities, schools, churches and leisure centres. Many of our clients have been with us since we began, in 2005.
We are now looking for both an apprentice level and an experienced/lead installer to join our successful business. You will be an enthusiastic, polite and hard-working individual with good practical skills within the area of mechanical and electrical (M&E), audio, visual, CCTV, or networking. You will be accurate and careful in your approach to jobs - traditional engineering skills relating to measuring, layout, cutting, fixing, cable management etc. are a key part of the role.
You will need to be comfortable working as part of a busy team and (for the lead installer) working alone or with a junior engineer. Key to this will be the ability to listen and understand instructions or guidance. You must be comfortable working at heights (access towers and powered access) and sometimes underfloor, and you will need a full (UK valid) driving licence, undergo a CRB check, and secure an ECS or CSCS card. As our customers are located across the UK, the job requires frequent travel, early starts, long days and frequent overnight hotel stays, particularly during school holidays.
In return, as well a decent salary, you'll be trained in AV and Network installation skills, products and services, plus you will be supported in developing as an engineer. We encourage our engineers to own projects on an end-to-end basis, beginning small scale, and working-up to full autonomy on high value complex jobs. A commission structure is in place to reward engineers who deliver these jobs on time and in full.
