About the Department

Operations are responsible for keeping the lights on; we are at the front line on the Network. If we find a fault, it is our responsibility to respond to the fault, and dispatch our skilled teams to fix it as quickly as possible. We work in all hours, and through all weathers, ensuring our customers are never without power.

What is the Role?

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Reinstator to join our Cabling team in Hampshire. In this hands-on role, you'll be responsible for reinstating SSE excavations to Code of Practice and reduce our contractor expenditure.

Working outside in all weather conditions, to strict timescales, your work must comply with regulations we abide by, and you'll be able to deliver excellent customer service where reactive maintenance is required. This is a physically demanding role, involving extensive reinstatement works on the highway and private land. Working closely with your manager, you may also be asked to assist with other ad hoc projects.

What Do I Need?

To be successful, you'll ideally have some experience with reinstating techniques including Tarmacadam, modular services, slabs and concrete. You'll also ideally have experience of working on public highways involving setting up and taking down temporary traffic signals to the code of practice and working alongside hotbox, concrete, and grab lorries.
