As Senior Electrical Engineer, you will lead, develop and mentor a team of electricians to deliver high standards of performance, excellent customer service and a proactive approach to all elements of work across the School estate.

You will allocate planned and reactive maintenance tasks to your team and ensure they are actioned correctly, within budget, within the assigned service agreements and to the customer’s satisfaction.
