Location: Southampton

Salary: £32,000 - £45,000 per annum

Job Type: Full time, Permanent

This is a Nationwide role.

The Company:

Simon Hegele provides specialist installation and logistics support to leading high tech manufacturers and resellers. We are a well-established and successful company with a reputation for quality and professionalism with business operations worldwide. In 2021 our UK team moved to a custom designed 120,000 square foot facility in Didcot Quarter, Abingdon, to accommodate our business growth and expanding Customer base and we continue to grow and attract new Customers every year. You will be joining a very capable and close-knit team promoting a safe working environment with opportunities to develop your capabilities and career.

About the role:

  • Join our specialist team installing the latest medical imaging technology in hospitals and clinics across the UK and Ireland.
  • This is a rare opportunity for professional people with strong mechanical, electrical or practical skills to develop a new and very different long-term career working with the UK division of a respected international company. Full training and support given leading to highly regarded specialist certification.
  • The role involves travelling to hospitals, clinics and research facilities across the UK and Southern Ireland, with opportunities to work occasionally in northern Europe, to install the latest state of the art MRI, CT and other medical imaging equipment as part of an installation team.
  • As well as your electrical or mechanical skills, a professional manner is required, as is the ability to communicate effectively with colleagues, project managers, technical support, and clinical staff. A confident manner and experience of leading or guiding a team would be an advantage, but guidance and support will be given to develop these capabilities over time.
  • Technicians can expect to be away from home most weeks to work and spend an average of 3 to 5 days on each installation. Depending on system and location, installation projects may start at weekends and time flexibility is required with adequate rest periods at home between installations as an integral part of this salaried role.
  • This role would suit a professional from a mechanical, electrical, engineering or installation background looking to develop a long-term career.
  • Our UK base is located in Didcot Quarter in Oxfordshire but since installations take place across the country with travel direct to site applicants from all areas of the UK are invited to apply.
  • Applications are also welcomed from licenced C+E drivers who live within 90 minutes' drive of Didcot, who would like to develop a new career that utilises their driving skills but also has much more to offer.

Key Requirements:

  • Background or interest in mechanical or electrical engineering or installation work with practical capabilities
  • A keen interest in learning new skills
  • Clear understanding of Health and Safety and safe methods of working
  • Able to accommodate flexible working patterns with nights away for work

Company Benefits

  • Internal and external training to develop skills
  • Tax free overnight allowances when working away from home

  • Performance based bonus scheme
  • Increasing holiday entitlement with length of service
  • Employee Assistance Programme
