This council has set the City an ambitious carbon neutral target by 2030 and this is your chance for you to contribute to that in a positive, meaningful way.

From undertaking Electrical design and specification work, finding solutions to rectifying defects, organising stand-alone electrical work, programmes for renewables such as carbon-reduction Solar PV, energy efficiency works such as LED lighting replacement and supporting the Building Surveyors as part of a design team approach to refurbishment projects. We deal with schools, social care premises, non-housing buildings, listed historic buildings, etc.

We need team players who are strong on Health and Safety, confident on AutoCAD, have monitoring contractor electrical design and performance on site skills, a flexible approach, good communication skills with the ability to work under pressure in our trusted, busy team of professionals.

About the role

We welcome applications from Graduates with some experience in electrical design, will help you with work time to study and provide a programme of in-house training and CPDs to help you grow and succeed. As an incentive, when you qualify, we will even pay your annual subs.

You will have the opportunity to work with a wide range of Client teams across the City who will value and respect your input. We remain sustainably independent as we generate fees through the works we manage. Always busy, we continue to secure further programmes of work and need to fill these posts with the right people.

A message to you from one of the team ‘Having worked for BHCC for just over three years now, there is one thing that has struck me – the variety of work. From the Brighton Centre to schools, the seafront and historic clocktowers, I have carried out repairs, maintained and restored such a varying degree of construction types. No project ever feels daunting as there is a wealth of experience in our team, that I know I can rely upon for support and advice whenever needed.’

In return you will enjoy a package of benefits that includes;

  • a healthy work life balance with flexible working hours
  • a laptop and iPhone for the days you work from home
  • an attractive pension scheme
  • generous annual leave from 23 days plus bank holidays plus 2 extra statutory plus 2 concessionary days per annum and flexi-days if you accrue additional hours
  • 24/7 access to free advice and support via the employee assistance programme
