Job Description

I am working with a North East based commercial subcontractor who have secured work in several locations across the country, to appoint an experienced Pipefitter who can turn their hand to any Plumbing works as and when required.

They have expressed an interest in looking for suitable candidates to work on a three month probationary period and given they are happy with the work, they would be then offered a permanent position within the company.

This is an excellent opportunity for driven individuals to join a growing company and work with them to expand their already extensive portfolio. My client has outlined they are looking for ambitious individuals to offer a progression route into a more senior role.

The company is split into a Maintenance and Servicing department and a Planned Works (Projects) department. They are looking to hire installation pipefitters into their Projects Department. It is imperative that applicants come from an extensive background of installations works. Candidates must have experience working with threaded steel, Xpress and Victaulic. Also must have experience installing heavy plant such as boilers, calorifiers and pumps. Must also have experience working to estimate labour requirements.

80% of successful candidates workload will be working away from home. Locations candidates can see themselves working in are Newcastle, Gateshead and Nottingham. Projects candidates can see themselves working on include Boiler Rooms and re-piping, Hygiene units, Factory's, Care homes and refurbishments.

Work will be paid on a negotiable hourly rate within the first three months.

Successful candidates will be travelling to work in a van with one or more other employees where there will always be a senior member of staff on site. Candidates will be paid for their travel time minus half an hour (this half an hour is expected for a standard commute to a static site). Work is paid at time and a half after 40 hours and time and a half up to four hours on a Saturday. Sunday is paid at double time. Accommodation will be paid for and employees will be given £50 per day for food expenses.

My client is looking to host interviews next week with a start for the following week.

Please apply within or call the office on 0191 814 1360 to express your interest. Alternatively you can contact me on my mopbile on 07711556949.
