Due to expansion, we are immediately seeking Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Ventilation Maintenance Engineers in the Midlands Area.

We desire flexible and committed individuals, with some form of previous practical mechanical engineering or electrical experience being advantageous, although not essential.

The successful candidate will possess a strong work ethic, operate with a keen attention to detail, have excellent communication skills and be comfortable submitting electronic reports (training will be provided on our operating system). They must also be comfortable working off their own initiative, to tight timescales, working with other engineers and be comfortable following instruction.

Our current portfolio of contracts we service range vastly from small commercial businesses (split a/c systems, process water chillers, kitchen cabinets and cold stores, etc) up to large commercial and industrial businesses (food production cooling, large scale cold storage, large building air conditioning, hospitals, universities, etc). In the main, the role will be one of carrying out routine maintenance of commercial Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Ventilation equipment, to include full reporting. There will be occasions where assistance will be provided to service engineers to assist with breakdowns, service repairs and/or installations.
