  • Provide out of hours cover on a rota basis as required
  • Present a positive company image at all times

The ideal candidate:

  • Proven track record of experience in installing, servicing and commissioning fire, CCTV and/or intruder alarm security systems (training will be provided where required)
  • Experience of working to NSI Gold standards and procedures
  • Good technical skills
  • Client focused approach with excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • Strong attention to detail and commercial awareness
  • Able to manage own workload with minimum supervision to ensure customer service isn’t compromised
  • Enthusiasm and professional attitude
  • Excellent team player

The position comes with:
