  • Maintaining electrical system documentation such as drawings and asset records, including SAP maintenance records.
  • Being conversant with applicable electrical standards regarding selection, installation, operations and maintenance of electrical equipment.

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