  • Plan for both AC power and DC power systems.
  • Plan the safe installation and replacement of engines and customer equipment in our telephone exchanges.

You’ll need to use problem solving skills and apply a careful approach to planning to get the job done. Along the way you’ll also have to make sure documentation such as computer-aided design drawings are up to date, and you’ll be trained to use these systems.

Every job is different and you can find yourself in the office or out on site, there’s never a dull day in planning!
