Electrical Testing Inspector



Job type:



Centrica has established an international Distributed Energy and Power business as part of its strategic review, marking a new, more customer-focussed direction for the Group. Our strategy is about satisfying the changing needs of our customers. Serving our customers is what we are known for, what we are good at and where we have distinctive capabilities.

As an Electrical Testing Inspector you would be working as part of a team, to complete the inspection and testing of low voltage electrical installation work within given time scales. This will involve carrying out fixed wiring inspections, minor remedial works (if required) and the production of accurate and concise British Gas Electrical Solutions certification. The role is to work with Yorkshire Water sites throughout Yorkshire.

The Role

We are looking for you to have a clear understanding of all types of Electrical installations and a level understanding of EaWR 1989, BS.7671 and the Water Industry Mechanical and Electrical Specification (WIMES) would be an advantage. You will also have the ability to produce network drawings as required to a clear, concise, legible standard which will cross reference directly and accurately to the periodic inspection report issued for the completed work. These specifications and reports are produced in a digital format on one of our tablets and therefore relevant IT experience is required.

We do need to do the right thing for our clients and therefore work will primarily be achieved during normal working hours but there may on occasion be a requirement to work out of hours (dependent upon the type of work and access hours dictated by the client).


The Person

We are looking for someone who will strive for high performance, be a champion for HSE, be motivated and able to work with limited supervision, and have well established communication & customer service skills to ensure customer expectations are met and exceeded.

  • Be a J.I.B Electrical trained engineer
