You will also be responsible for the installation, repairs and maintenance of transformers, switchgear and substations, as you:

  • Install transformers, switchgear high and low voltage, service pillars
  • Undertake the repairs of transformers, breakers, tap changes and substations maintenance
  • Inspect of transformers, pillar boxes and lines
  • Perform repairs on LV, service pillars and HV equipment

Safety is your number one priority, and with your 3+ years minimum experience in a similar role, you know how to put safety first, to ensure the ongoing safety of our community, our staff and our customers.
