Client Name

Job Type

Closing Date

Are you self employed and thinking you don’t need the hassle of tax returns anymore?  Would you like to work for a locally based company and help us keep people safe?

Wheeler’s are expanding into the Fire Protection sector and so we are looking for Engineers to come and join us.  Other fire companies may be looking for a Fire Alarm Systems Engineer, they could be advertising for a Fire Install Engineer or even a Fire Installation and Maintenance Engineer, we are just looking for some top Engineers who know their customer service and can extinguish faults in super quick time! (See what we did there?)  

This is a Senior role within the company and so we are not only offering job security, a pension, progression but also a salary of up to £32,000 with overtime and on-call duties with enhanced overtime rates.  We also work in collaboration with our Engineers to try and accommodate your preferences in how your daily schedule is planned as much as possible, we know how important work/life balance is and we want our staff to feel they have control over what time they get home for dinner! We do this whilst balancing the needs of the business and making sure we keep our customers happy too.

Your days will be spent doing the usual duties of providing both routine and reactive servicing, as well as the programming and commissioning of new Fire Detection and Alarm Systems and Remote Monitoring Systems.  Working across all our business sectors, you’ll be able to mentor our more junior members of the team, sharing your extensive knowledge and helping them to achieve their goals within the business.  You’ll be providing support to our customers and to the wider company with sales, admin (you get a free pen) and operations when required.

So what skills will you need?  Well we need you to have a minimum of a City and Guilds 1 or 2 in Electrical Engineering and, as we all know, if you mess with fire you get burned so  ideally you’ll have a strong background in this or a very similar sector and be looking to progress into a more supervisory role.  If you have experience working with systems such as Electronics, HAES, Kentec, Gent, Hochiki, Apollo, Vesda and Airsense, that will definitely put you in the top spot, however, training can be provided and so you need to be keen to learn. 

Most importantly, you always put the customer first, you’re a real “roll your sleeves up” kind of person and willing to go that extra mile when needed.  If trouble shooting had been around in the days of the Wild West you would be Wyatt Earp, however, your dress sense and professional appearance will need to be a lot better! You’re confident in identifying and suggesting the appropriate course of action to resolve problems and know how important it is to ensure that all works are completed and/or rescheduled if necessary.  You’ll also need a full driving licence as you won’t be riding shotgun Wyatt!

Established in 1979, Wheeler’s (Westbury) Ltd offers its clients a combined package and, along with our Electrical/Mechanical/Plumbing, Fire Alarm/Security Division and Maintenance departments, Wheeler’s (Westbury) Ltd has strengthened the provision to offer an expanded range of quality services giving the client 'a complete service'.
