Your New Role


We have a fantastic opportunity for a permanent Electrician to join our Ministry of Justice (MoJ) account in HMP Haverigg. This role is based on-site and is more than 1 hour from Lancaster. Unless immediately local, you will need to drive to/from work due to the remote coastal location.


There will be a need to work 1 in 4 weekends but this would be on a rota basis (and with an additional allowance of 15% of basic salary).


At Amey, we’re supporting our justice client, Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) by providing them with safe, clean and efficient prisons. By using our facilities management expertise, we help keep 60 secure premises across England and Wales running smoothly.


Electrician plays an important part in ensuring the planned and reactive maintenance work within the prisons is carried out in a safe, compliant and timely manner.


The standard hours of work are 39 hours per week (across 7 days where a weekend shift pattern is in place). Start and finish times are Monday to Thursday 08:00 – 17:00; Friday to Sunday 08:00 – 16:00.


Work-life balance and flexibility are key for our success. We empower our people to make choices that are right for them. And with a network of offices across the UK, we’re open to discussing working options that suit you.


You will be responsible for:

Planned and preventative electrical maintenance.
Diagnosing and replacing failed domestic electrical components.
Responding to breakdowns ensuring all works are carried out under the appropriate Safe System of Work and in a timely manner.
Actively fault finding / problem solving on domestic electrical systems across the prison.
Undertaking electrical installation activities in accordance with the design provided and IET Wiring Regulations.
Testing and inspecting electrical installations in accordance with the current IEE wiring regulations.
Monitoring and ordering critical spares for all electrical services.
Other tasks as required by the Site
This role will also support both local and business zero carbon programmes, working towards zero carbon in a strategic and lean manner as and where it is appropriate.
Responsible for ensuring H&S standards are achieved across the contract.
What makes this role unique is you will test and inspect electrical installations across prison facilities in accordance with the 18th IEE wiring regulations as amended from time to time. Prison Security Clearance will be required (Amey will support you through this process).


We want to hear from you if you have:

Appropriate technical qualification eg City & Guilds 2365 parts 1-3, BTEC, NVQ level 3 or above
BS7671 IET Wiring Regulations, specifically 18th Edition*.
Experience of electrical maintenance activities, general distribution and installation and testing.
Knowledge and experience of Electrical Systems and Electricity at work Regulations.
Capable of working at heights.
Ability to work alone and use initiative.
Ideally you will be qualified in 18th Edition (however if you currently only have 17th Edition, we will sponsor you to upgrade to the 18th Edition; terms and conditions apply) with experience in electrical maintenance within a commercial environment.


In addition to this, it would be desirable if you have IT skills and experience in fire alarm systems and CCTV systems to help you hit the ground running, although this is not essential as we will provide you with the required development you need to bring you up to speed.
