A Field Service Engineer is required to join a leading supplier of barcode and RFID access systems for libraries in the UK and Ireland.

The Field Service Engineer will work on Sentry Access Control products across multiple academic sites, with responsibility for Southern England and if needed, the rest of the UK.

Applications from suitably experienced ex-military personnel (British Army, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy or Royal Marines) are strongly encouraged to apply.

This is a customer facing, multi-skilled role requiring electronic and mechanical understanding, covering all aspects of installation, preventative maintenance and fault rectification on customer sites across the UK and Ireland. The role requires work on construction sites and 'live' customer sites, as well as remote support as necessary.

The role is based from your home address and may require significant travel across the UK (including flights to Ireland and Scotland) and occasional overnight stays away from home so a full clean UK driving licence is essential.

A fully expensed vehicle and generous incidental expenses are provided.

Area Covered: London, Southern England and South Wales with overlap into other areas as required.
