What does it take to join this team that keeps water running for over 15 million homes and businesses, maintain 65km of gas pipes and installing one million metres of fibre optic cable every year? It takes people like you.

Kier and its alliance with South West Water are passionate about water. We help to provide clean and waste water services to c.1.7 million people in Cornwall, Devon, and parts of Somerset and Dorset.

About the role

As Mechanical Fitter, you will be supporting the operational teams' installations and refurbishments in a wide range of plant from inlet screen to pumping station pipe work.

Having knowledge of maintenance and fault finding within a live water treatment facility would also stand you in great stead to be successful. In addition, it would also be advantageous to hold industrial/ commercial site experience. This role will see you working in a team of multi skilled engineers and would be required to go on the standby rota (1 in 7 weeks), whilst always working to a high safety standard.

If you have an industry applicable apprenticeship or NVQ equivalent, then we would love to hear from you.
