TEST & COMMISSIONING ENGINEER (PERSON IN CHARGE OF TEST)|
MILTON KEYNES-FLEXIBLE TRAVEL UK & EUROPE
"You'll be responsible for testing and commissioning a brand new fleet of trains"
This first class Rail OEM have secured a lucrative contract worth £370m to deliver 24 four car and 46 three car trains that will enter service in stages between 2017 and 2019. The first batch of trains are ready to enter the testing and commissioning phase and desperately need you! A hardworking team player with a solid track record in rolling stock, ready to progress a career down the test & commissioning route.
Is this you?
ABOUT THE JOB
You'll be one of eight members of the "dream team" responsible for the smooth running of the test train ensuring all testing and commissioning is done in accordance to the test plan. You may need to undertake planned and reactive maintenance as necessary throughout the test procedure, so you won't have left the tools completely behind! You'll liaise heavily with test operators, test equipment suppliers as well as people from the DFT so your verbal communication needs to be top notch. Your primary base of work will be in Milton Keynes, although you will be required to travel to Velim (Czech Republic) for up 10-14 days per month and Glasgow for up to 5 days at a time so flexibility is key. Therefore, in reality, you can live anywhere in the country as long as you're prepared to lodge at your own expense when in Milton Keynes and you'll be expensed for travel, accommodation and meals when in Glasgow and Velim.
THE IDEAL CANDIDATE
This role will suit you if you are looking to progress your career down the test route. We have placed many people in this role over the past three years who have gone onto hold senior positions in the test & commissioning team. In addition, this really is the best place to be as you'll be working on the latest technology the company have to offer and will be instrumental in the successful mobilisation of the new fleet.
You're the test and commissioning engineer I am looking for if you can demonstrate a solid track record in maintaining rolling stock assets supported by an NVQ Level 3 or equivalent in an engineering discipline (ideally electrical!).
