Job description

Rare opportunity to join a world leading renewable energy organisation, without any previous renewable energy expertise. With the organisation forging ahead with its solar farm construction projects, which is due to be completed this year, their focus will now change to operations and maintenance. With that said they now require a Lead operations technician to run the small team on the project site. This role will require relocation to Merredin in WA.

To be successful you will:

1) Be experienced in the management of contracts and have a commercial acumen.

2) Strong people management ability to manage other technicians and subcontractors

3) Ability to interface with utilities and energy operators

4) Background in High voltage and/or control systems work

5) Previous power generation expertise would be desirable, but candidates from resources and mining/manufacturing/industrial backgrounds with above skill set will also be considered

6) Experienced in conducting and planning preventative maintenance programs

You will be happy to relocate to the regional area close to the power plant and be able to work a standard 40 hour week, although flexibility for call outs will be needed. You will have a collaborative nature but be used to working in an autonomous environment.

In return a competitive salary package is being offered with expectations this role will commence between April and May 2020. If you are looking for a more settled lifestyle away from the FIFO environments and have a genuine interest in the renewable energy industry, this could be the perfect opportunity for you. Taking into consideration restrictions of movement in the current pandemic, WA candidates will be preferred at this stage.
