Your new job
Are you a brilliant electrician looking to further your career with a purpose led organisation who really cares about their people? Good, our electrical team is expanding and has exciting opportunities for you to join us working around the Wiltshire area.
You’ll bring your proven track record of carrying out electrical installations in a domestic dwelling to support the Wiltshire electrical team. Your work is scheduled in for you and jobs are shared with you via an electronic handheld device (your PDA) so you’ll be comfortable using technology and IT systems.
You’ll work alone primarily, so you’ll be confident working to your own initiative, but you will get plenty of support from our regional supervisors Chris & Matt. The team get together for team meetings, these are held through Microsoft teams at the moment but when our offices reopen, you’ll attend toolbox talks for regular training and company updates.
You’ll be given a company vehicle to get around our communities, so you’ll need a full UK driving licence. You could be in various locations in one day so there’s plenty of opportunity to take in your surroundings and get to know the wider Wiltshire region.
You’ll be an ambassador for us with a “can do” attitude and a right service, first time mentality. You’ll enjoy providing high quality service to our customers whilst being the friendly face of Aster.
You’ll be a fully qualified electrician (holding a 2391 city and guilds qualification or equivalent), with demonstrable experience in domestic electrical installations. You will carry out inspection and testing to British standards to a set programme, advising on progress and completing all necessary records in hard and electronic files as required.
As an electrician, you’ll know that safety is priority therefore you’ll have knowledge and understanding of safety regulations and will carry out all works in line with this. You’ll also have a good understanding of health & safety regulations.
You’ll be motivated with a focus on customer service as you’ll be in our customers’ homes every day. You’ll also liaise with our internal colleagues to ensure works are completed and any ongoing works are logged appropriately. You’ll have a flexible approach to work with the ability to take part in an out of hours standby rota within your region.
You’ll be able to work effectively in a team and autonomously when necessary and have enthusiasm for providing excellent customer service and an ability to keep calm in difficult situations. Good communication skills both verbally and written are essential for this role. You will need to be willing and able to meet face fit requirements. As mentioned, you’ll be provided with a company van so you’ll need a full, UK driving licence.
We’re Aster, a not-for-dividend Housing Provider established in 1990 and with over £1.6 billion worth of assets.

It’s the work we choose to do over and above our landlord and development activities.
Now is a really exciting time to join us. We’re working towards our vision of everyone has a home. It’s a bold statement but one everyone across our business is passionate about. Our purpose is to improve people’s lives. We provide safety and security through our reliable landlord services and we supply a wide range of housing options in response to the housing crisis. We believe that work isn’t somewhere you go, it’s something you do. No two days are the same here, and agile working is the norm rather than the exception.
