Vacancy Description

We are recruiting for an Apprentice Lightning Conductor Fitter on behalf of Churchill Specialist Contracting.

Churchill Specialist Contracting are experts in ensuring that commercial and industrial projects of all sizes are protected from the dangers of electricity, including both earthing systems and lightning conductors. Churchill carry out each phase of a project, from initial assessment to design and installation, themselves – allowing the successful candidate the benefit of developing their knowledge and skills alongside respected and experienced professionals.

The role will include:
• Fitting lightning conductors and earthing materials on new build commercial and industrial projects. These environments vary widely from small construction projects to full sized power stations
• Travelling across the UK to complete installations, which may involve overnight lodging (an allowance is paid for this work)

To be considered for this position, you will be educated to a decent standard, although a positive attitude, experience of the working world and a desire to be successful within the construction industry are of high importance. A driving licence would be desirable but not essential - although learning to drive would be strongly encouraged. You will ideally be looking to develop a career within the lightning protection and earthing industry.

All safety equipment, PPE and training will be provided.

The current rate of pay for a newly qualified (NVQ level) fitter at Churchill is £11 an hour.
