TEST & COMMISSIONING ENGINEER (PERSON IN CHARGE OF TEST)|
WEST LONDON-FLEXIBLE TRAVEL UK
"You'll be responsible for testing and commissioning a brand new fleet of trains"
This first class Rail OEM have secured a lucrative contract to replace 122 high speed trains across the East and West Coast of the UK. These trains will run at 125mph and will reduce journey time by 18 minutes. 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 West London, although you will be required to travel across the UK, so flexibility is key. For the first 4-6 months you will undergo extensive training on the fleet before moving onto a 4 on 4 off continental shift pattern. When you are working away from London you will be given expenses to cover accommodation, travel and food.
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!).
