Senior CHP Engineer / Team Leader

South West Region

My client is an established power generation business, going through and exciting period of change and growth! As part of this panned expansion, an exciting new opportunity for a Senior CHP Engineer / CHP Team Leader to join the company and assist with promoting the development of a small team of CHP Technicians.

  • Plan around remedial work and ensure minimum downtime on sites
  • Assist in the scheduling of maintenance programs
