Assistant gas to grid engineer

GENeco is a multi-award winning recycling and renewable energy company. We were created by Wessex Water in 2008 to help our parent company become more sustainable, and our truly ground-breaking and driven approach led to us achieving carbon neutrality and zero waste to landfill status in the first three years of operation. This remarkable progress has continued through innovations such as our gas to grid facility, and in 2015 we were named as a Guardian Sustainable Business of the Year.

As a business we treat over 700,000 tonnes of varied waste per annum, transforming this into commercial products, renewably-sourced gas and electricity powering many thousands of local homes. We are consistently setting new standards within the industry and utilising ground-breaking technology to provide the best value sustainable solutions to a diverse customer base. Whether it was the Volkswagen Beetle powered by human waste or establishing a co-located food waste and sewage sludge recycling facility, GENeco was there first.

We are now expanding our team in Avonmouth to include an assistant gas to grid engineer to help develop our business even further. The gas to grid installation is closely linked to the combined heat and power (CHP) plant, so we'll need you to have specialist expertise in gas systems as well as an understanding of heat requirements for the waste food plant and the compliant sludge treatment process.

Day to day, you'll be assisting with operations and maintenance of the plant to ensure compliance with quality standards and you'll also be providing technical advice and training to internal and external stakeholders. This means that, in addition to your technical qualifications, you will have good process knowledge of a CHP plant and experience of treatment process and procedure optimisation. Health and safety knowledge and experience of implementing safe systems of work is vital.

You should also be aware that this role will include call-out and weekend working. Specialist training for the role will be provided.

The ideal candidate will have obtained an HNC or degree in mechanical or electrical engineering. Prior practical experience in industry would be desirable.

We do not accept CVs from recruitment agencies. We are an equal opportunities employer. You must be able to provide proof of your eligibility to work in the UK and proof of skills and qualifications gained. Appointment of successful applicant/s will also be subject to receiving suitable references and basic (or where job applicable) other criminal disclosure checks.
