Job description

This is a rare opportunity to join a world leading renewable energy organisation, without any previous renewable energy expertise. With the recent completion and energisation of a utility scale solar farm project in Western Australia, the operations and maintenance team is now looking for a solar operations technician to work alongside their lead technician on a permanent basis.

To be successful you will:

1) An Electrical trade background with a HV switching ticket
2) Ability and willingness to work in different remits i.e mechanical, general labour duties
3) Ability to interact and work well with subcontractors bought onto the power plant and provide guidance and instruction
4) Background in High voltage and 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) Work with the lead technician to ensure maintenance program of works is scheduled and coordinated.

7) Have a full and valid drivers licence

8) Be able to provide or pass a national police check

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 before the christmas holidays. 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, Western Australian based candidates will be preferred at this stage but we will accept applications from Australian citizens and permanent residents that meet the criteria.

If this position is of interest please get in touch with Paul Harris on 0403348272 to discuss the role further of apply online today.
