Working hours: Due to the nature of the business and the support required by our clients, the hours of work for engineering personnel are not set or designed as a shift pattern, therefore you are required to be very flexible to meet our clients’ requirements. The weekly schedule consists of a mix of day and night working as required.
Where necessary you may be required to work longer on site to complete a task rather than leaving it incomplete and having to return at a later date (overtime will be paid in accordance with the agreement).

Vehicles: A company vehicle will be provided, complete with a sat nav, fuel card, NCP card and a full maintenance package.
It is the engineer’s responsibility to keep the vehicle clean and tidy and parked in a safe, secure location. The engineer must make regular checks on his/her vehicle to ensure it is in a safe and mechanically sound condition.

C stock items, such as pneumatic fittings, screws, bolts, WD40 etc., must be replenished through your immediate supervisor who will organise locally.
Tools and Equipment: Engineers will be issued with all necessary tools, equipment and instruments to allow them to perform their jobs. It is the responsibility of each engineer to take adequate precautions to avoid the loss or theft of tools, equipment and instruments issued to them. Replacement of these items will be the responsibility of the engineer on a new-for-old basis.
Responsibilities: Engineers of all levels are expected to attend site as directed and carry out service of plant equipment as specified in the client’s equipment register. The service work will be carried out strictly in accordance with Brakel Airvent 4B specifications and service sheets which are available to engineers.
Any repair/remedial work which cannot be carried out during the service must be reported on the service work sheet clearly stating the nature of the work and detailing all necessary replacement parts required to carry out repairs.

Engineers are responsible for reporting any changes to the site equipment register to head office A.S.A.P.
A detailed plan of all sites must be devised by the responsible engineer identifying the position of equipment relative to the site.
All equipment must be numbered in a manner that is clearly identifiable by the site management and by any subsequent Airvent engineers who may attend site. Engineers’ service reports and time sheets must be clear concise, and received by the office no later than the end of the following day/night that the work was carried out.
