Job Details

In this position, you will be responsible for managing the safety, compliance and performance of all electrical systems and infrastructure at GSK Maidenhead. This includes design, maintenance and operation, whilst conforming to Statutory and Corporate health, safety and environmental standards. You will focus specifically on electrical infrastructure, providing expert knowledge in the fields of electrical power, infrastructure, instrumentation and control.

The successful candidate will hold considerable responsibility across HV and LV. As a member of the above-site specialist network for electrical compliance and safety, you will need to develop excellent relationships with experts across the business.

  • Being conversant with applicable electrical standards regarding selection, installation, operations and maintenance of electrical equipment.
  • Working collaboratively with project engineers to assure appropriate electrical standards are included in packaged equipment specifications.
  • Maintaining electrical system documentation such as drawings and asset records, including SAP maintenance records.

About You:
To deliver results in this position will require considerable technical knowledge and experience, as well as strong interpersonal skills.
