We’re on the lookout for… 

Commissioning Engineer 

This is a great opportunity to join an amazing business at an exciting time in our development, with recent investments enabling a platform for significant future growth. We’re trying to create a new breed of engineer that can solve any problem regardless of plumbing, electrical or data! It’s a chance to be part of a growing, friendly team trying to make a positive difference fight the climate emergency. 

What’s in it for you?  

Diversity: We actively look to reflect the variety of our world and welcome the widest diversity of applicants – it’s only your talent and experience that matters. 

Permanent: We’re a growing SME and see this role as a permanent member of our growing team. We’ve got lots of plans up our sleeves for exciting new things!  

Working Hours: We’re looking for about 37.5 hours per week for this role – what would generally be called Full Time. How that breaks into days or a working pattern is up to you.   

Working Times: Our policy allows working anywhere at any time, ultimate flexibility. We’d like at least some of your working hours to be coordinated with other internal and external team members to ensure we’re being efficient and communicating effectively. We think work should fit your lifestyle, so you can work when you can be most efficient!  

Location: We’d like to see you in our Cardiff city center offices often enough for you to be able to do the job effectively, integrate our ethos and work with the team. But otherwise, we’re focused on you doing the work, not where you choose to do it. We’re fully set up for virtual working! 

Salary: We’re budgeting up to £30,000 per annum for this role with opportunity to progress and have the contract extended beyond the initial 6 months. This also depends on what we agree between us your preferred weekly total hours.  

Perks: You’re helping save the planet! 

Also, 6% pension contribution from us; healthcare with family & dental options; electric vehicle scheme; equity scheme; cycle to work scheme; training & development support of course; office fruit bowl & refreshments! 

What we’re after 

We want team players who’ll integrate well, pitch in to help others as needed, and make being at work at least something approaching fun from time to time.  

We’re a small but growing business, and you’ll need to be self-motivated, completely trustworthy and able to manage your own delivery to hit milestones.  

You’ll be flying the flag for us to partners, so being personable and a good communicator will be important.  

Being a bit “eco” definitely isn’t going to hurt either! 

What we’ll be asking you to do 

You will be responsible for installation and maintenance of the Sero life energy management system in both new builds and retrofits. Your responsibilities will include;
• Provide full operational and maintenance support to the business for all Sero Projects and customers.
• Installing the Sero Building Energy Engine (data and electrical terminations)
• General fault finding of systems
• Develop proactive system checks on all Sero systems
• Testing continuity issues & repairing faults
• Documenting progress
• System Commissioning
• Managing customer expectations and representing Sero in customer facing capacity
• Liaising with sub-contractors and various trades

What about skills & qualifications? 

At least 12 months experience as a qualified electrician or plumber. We expect this role will require training in one of these trades to complement the existing capability. Confidence to work alone and as well as part of a team.

Awareness and experience of low carbon technology installations such as Heat Pumps, Hot water Cylinders, PV, Battery and EV charging installations.

Experience working in building sites with a current CSCS card, SMTS and CDM awareness. Additional Project management qualifications would be advantageous.

Sero was founded to make a connection between homes and energy, and to use technology to make both these easier and smarter together. We do this to save our customers money and to save them time, but we also do it to save our planet. 

To tackle the Climate Emergency, we provide clever energy services that automatically reduces the carbon footprint of the homes we run. To do this, we work with other home builders and landlords to help them understand what to do with their buildings to achieve this. 

We also try and lead by example, so through our sister company Sero Homes we build true zero carbon homes, set in ecologically vibrant spaces and places (there’s a and Biodiversity Crisis too!), so that our homes help to build a community. 


If you think we’re a match, please get in touch! 

We’d like a C.V., but send it with a covering note too please that tells us why you’d be our perfect fit for our team.  

Your note can be a letter, email, video snippet, go crazy, give us a little bit of your character…
