We now need a reliable Communications & Electronics Officer for our Engineering Infrastructure & Operational Support (EIOS) team. Join us in an incredibly varied role that can take you out of the workshop and into Met operations.
This is a chance to work across several engineering subjects and really use your initiative. Your task will be to provide the technology officers need in their work every day.

- Video monitoring systems

- Electrical and electronic principles.
You’ll also bring an HNC or degree (or equivalent) in a relevant Engineering subject. Along with this technical expertise, you’ll have true team spirit and understand the importance of your work.
