Junior Technician

Ref: AH/ 2000260

Location: South Cambs

Salary: £competitive

This is a fantastic opportunity for a young technically minded person to gain experience, new skills and international travel.

Located just to the south of Cambridge, our client designs and builds hi tech equipment used by police and related organisations for uses such as border surveillance and perimeter security type applications. They are looking for a Junior Technician to support the sales and technical team. You will also provide general housekeeping and administration tasks in support of demonstrations, exhibitions and other team activities.

Technical assistance may include preparing equipment for demonstrations, packing and shipping, preparation of exhibition equipment, radar health checks, basic fault diagnosis and configuration, organising equipment stores and ensuring damaged/unserviceable equipment is repaired.

They are seeking a person who can demonstrate enthusiasm and aptitude for this generally technical role. You should be able to demonstrate technical capability, especially relating to electronics and/or computers and have an interest in all things technical.

The equipment is technically complex and is typically installed in site security systems costing millions of pounds. Therefore you need to be a logical thinker and self-organised to ensure that you can support the team effectively.

Once you have acquired a good knowledge of the equipment, you will eventually be expected to support the team on remote demonstrations both in the UK and abroad. Travel destinations may include Europe, USA, Middle East and Asia Pacific region.

At any time you may be meeting our client's customers and so you will need to represent the company in a professional and presentable manner. Note that their equipment is typically installed in remote locations and often on the top of masts.

The job will require reasonable communication skills in order to coordinate the movement of equipment and help with demonstrations.

A UK driving licence is highly desirable to allow you to provide off-site support to the team.
