At the moment we are eager to recruit :


Trainee Fire Alarm Engineer

Updated 7th June 2019

8.21/hr (35hr/wk) + Van + Training
We are looking to recruit a Trainee Fire Alarm Engineer. Becoming a Fire Alarm Engineer is a rewarding career and this traineeship offers a rare opportunity to get into the industry. Full training will be given. At the end of the 12 month training period, having gained the appropriate qualifications, you can expect to be offered a position with the company of full Fire Alarm Engineer.

In a friendly work environment, you will learn how to service and repair Fire Alarm Systems, Emergency Lighting and Fire Extinguishers. This will include learning use of specialist tools, installation skills, programming panels, learning interfacing, fault finding and basic electronics. This job has a good mix of working alone or with other engineers, at a variety of properties in the home counties.

As your abilities progress during the twelve months, you will be sent on a number of training courses to gain relevant qualifications, at the company's expense. These are run by our industry associations, equipment manufacturers, or at the Fire Service College. The qualifications expected to be gained during the 12 months include Fire Alarm System Design, Fire Alarm System Maintenance, Emergency Lighting & training at various system manufacturers.

The job brings lots of variety, with different sites being visited every day. A typical day starts at 9am at our office, where the engineers are given their tasks for the day. The engineers may be working alone or in pairs, depending on the tasks booked. During the traineeship, you will always be with a qualified engineer, until you are ready to carry out some of the tasks on your own.

A full, clean UK driving license is required as we will be issuing you with a company van, fuel card & breakdown cover. A DBS check will be undertaken because some of our sites have vulnerable people (schools, carehomes, etc). You will be issued with all necessary tools, laptop and uniform. 10/month is given towards your mobile phone costs.

This is the start of a good career with a well established, small company, in a stable industry.
