Technical Support Manager

Job Description

So, you’re an electrical engineer looking for a new job. How about an exciting role working in support of our Army customers? You’ll get to work independently to deliver on one-of-a-kind projects. Join a great team at Aspire Defence Services…

As a Technical Support Manager, you will be responsible for providing electrical and general technical support, guidance, and direction. This means that you will need to have proven track record in Electrical systems, design, building services or Maintenance Engineering, as well as construction experience in the areas of snagging and commissioning works.

You should also be commercially aware with good influencing skills and have proven financial awareness. And experience in sustainable technologies and PFI contracts would be an advantage.

This role will involve having a good understanding of design and build processes, and experience in dealing with Specific Building Requirements/Design Briefs for maintenance will be beneficial towards your success in this role. In addition, you’ll need to be able to carry out detailed research into specific subjects, understand requirements and provide relevant direction to the wider business.

You will be providing operational guidance and appraisal on Functional Acceptance Testing and technical snagging of major projects. And generating Building System and Associated Plant and Equipment test plans, testing methods and definition of acceptable standards of performance (acceptance specifications, targets, and tolerances).

Although you’ll work independently, you should be able to work collaboratively as part of a wider team, and possess good interpersonal and communication skills, with the confidence to deal with people at all levels, especially when facing clients.

We’re all about nurturing great teams, and our award-winning safety and wellbeing initiatives are built on keeping an eye out for one another and having a good work-life balance.
