Full Job Description

The duties include highly complex fault finding and maintenance on all aspects of engineering plant and equipment throughout the Trust.
- The duties must be carried out within strict timescales and statutory guidelines.
- The post holder must participate in the pre-planned on-call rota as part of an approved structure (following suitable training).
- Planned and reactive maintenance tasks will take up a majority of this role, and an excellent all-around working knowledge of basic engineering systems is therefore essential.

The successful applicant will have experience with complex systems and previous exposure to safe working methods, and the ability to work on a diverse range of plants.

Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust provides a range of medical services to approximately 490,000 people living across southwest London and northeast Surrey. In addition, we provide more specialist services, in particular renal and neonatal intensive care, to a wider area, covering parts of Sussex and Hampshire.
We serve an area that is rich in diversity, with a mix of urban and rural areas, and differing levels of quality of life. We cover some of the most prosperous postcodes in the country, as well as some poorer areas. Together with our colleagues at NHS Surrey and NHS Sutton and Merton, we work to make sure that we deliver the best possible care to the communities we serve.
The Trust employs approximately 5,000 staff across its hospitals and is supported by over 500 volunteers.

Additional training and development will be given as part of a formal training plan to ensure safe work systems are maintained at all times.
This role will also require participation in the department's on-call system. This is to ensure that our service is delivered to our Hospital's 24-hours a day, seven days a week
. This is currently a one in six arrangement allowing for annual leave and standard working.
