Do you have a commercial plumbing background and are looking for a new challenge? Do you want to work on a strategic project that supports the UK’s defence? How about an exciting role working as an Aquatherm Repair Plumber in support of our Army customers? Join a great team at Aspire Defence Services…
You are not just a plumber who fixes leaks, you are a skilled technician who can handle complex and sensitive tasks, such as replacing Aquatherm with Mapress SS, sterilising and dosing water systems, and supporting the Project Saracen testing programme.

To be successful in this role, you will need a combination of experience, knowledge, and skills. You will need to have proven experience of working for a medium-large facilities management organisation, maintaining industrial and commercial wet systems, maintaining, commissioning, and bringing into service PP-R pipework systems, and working on a military establishment.
You will also need to be IT literate (including use of PDA), able to read and interpret system drawings, and have basic electrical knowledge (desirable).
In addition, you will need to have a customer-focused, proactive, and flexible attitude to work, a strong problem-solving capability and self-discipline, a strong communication and interpersonal skills (written and verbal), and a professional attitude to workmanship and behaviours.
