Full Time – Trainee
We welcome applications from candidates located within reasonable travel distance from our Head Office in Nottingham.
Due to continued development and expansion we are currently looking for Trainee Sprinkler Fitters to join our installation teams. This is a great opportunity for keen individuals to join a growing business, with scope to develop and progress, for the right person with the right approach.
This role will involve providing daily site labour requirements, such as carrying and distributing materials, using hand tools, fitting CPVC pipe work and sprinkler heads, driving and generally helping our Engineering teams to fit sprinkler systems into domestic and residential premises. You will need to ensure that works are completed on time and to appropriate quality standards.
Once fully trained this role will also involve liaison with the office based colleagues, customers and suppliers, completing paperwork and documentation, following relevant standards and being able to resolve site issues.
Candidates must be flexible in their approach to work as these positions typically involve lodging away Monday – Friday (Accommodation and allowance for food provided by NFS). Early starts are common and weekend working is also occasionally required.
Candidates will start on NMW, however once initial training is complete (usually 1 – 3 months) candidates can expect a basic salary as a pipe fitter of £19,760 + regular overtime + higher rates of pay for weekend working (when available).
An ideal candidate will:
- Have previous site experience in the construction industry
- Be educated to GSCE standard or above
- Be fit and healthy as the job requires lifting and being active
- Be organized, flexible and self motivated
- Have excellent communication skills
- A full clean UK driving licence
- A valid passport
- A CSCS card (or can obtain one before employment commences)
All uniform, PPE and Tools will be provided as well as full training for this challenging and varied environment. Most training will be site based practical training, but candidates will be expected to attend external and internal courses/training events when required.
