Electrical Fitter (Rail)
Burton Upon Trent
Good base salary+ good overtime rates, good pension & excellent other benefits

As a world leading engineering company with a proven track record in providing advanced engineered solutions, predominantly to the rail industry (locos, not infrastructure), as well as tunneling and construction, my client has a history and pedigree that spans almost a century.
They have developed some novel equipment that provides additional capabilities and functionality to the locos.
Due to the award of some prestigious contracts and additional projects they are now looking to bring in an Electrical Fitter to join their already impressive team.

As an Electrical Fitter you will:

  • Be responsible for wiring and carrying out electrical fitting on a range of rail and associated equipment
  • Work from electrical schematics to ensure the accurate electrical fitting of systems (control panels, PLCs and electrical boards etc.) to locomotive systems and associated equipment
  • Fit both HV & LV systems
  • Carry out panel wiring to equipment that will subsequently be fitted to the locos and then fitting this equipment onto the main loco system
  • Carry out some mechanical tasks, usually to assist with the electrical fitting side; for example you may be feeding wires through a loco and will need to take off and re-attach internal panels
  • Advise the rest of the team (mechanical, Project teams etc.) on any electrical issues or suggestions
  • Occasionally go to customer sites to provide on-site fitting and advice to their own teams


In order to be considered for this Electrical Fitter role it is expected that you will have:

  • Relevant industry experience and the ability to work alone or as part of a small but enthusiastic team

  • An ability to work with customer’s engineers, both verbal / written and face to face on site
  • Some mechanical skills (very basic) and the ability to work with multi-disciplined teams
  • A good understanding of site and workshop Health and Safety

Exposure to electrical fitting on Locomotives, similar rail orientated equipment or off-highway vehicles will be a distinct advantage

In addition to working with one of the world leaders in what they do, you will be rewarded with;

  • A good hourly rate / salary based on your skills and experience
  • Good overtime rates including significant enhancements if you visit customer’s sites
  • Good workplace Pension
  • 33 days holiday per year (25+8)
