Summary of vacancy

Are you in a Field Service Engineer / Technician position, electrically biased, with a background in the water treatment industry? Or do you have electrical training / qualification, with an interest and commitment for a field based role, with extensive UK travel? You will be installing, operating and maintaining water systems, with customers ranging from specialist manufacturers to power stations and plants.

Bringing together like minded people and experienced professionals, we continue to develop advanced technologies to solve the world's most complex challenges related to water scarcity, quality, productivity, the environment and energy.

What will you be doing as a Field Service Representative (FSR)?

Coordinating with the Area Field Services management team, you will act as the electrical technical consultant, liaising and providing on-site support and customer management. Installing, servicing and operating chemical feed and water treatment equipment, duties will include:

A field based mobile role means you’ll be based from home and on the road most days, so you’ll need to be organised to plan your diary, booking your travel and accommodation. Proactivity is a must, reporting customer feedback to the business and making recommendations to any site procedure or policy changes to improve efficiency.

Providing an emergency installation service requires FSR’s to be on call (currently 1wk in 4), with flexibility to travel to other sites within the UK, Ireland and internationally, with a bi-annual bonus paid to compensate.
