Job Posting - Portable Power Electrician

COVID-19 UPDATE

Thank you to all who are submitting applications for this position. Unfortunately,being an event-based operation, restrictions currently in place to avoid the spread of COVID-19 have necessitated a shutdown of our industry. The event business will likely be the last to recover and this has forced us to make workplace adjustments and implement a temporary hiring freeze. As a result, this opportunity is currently unavailable.

Applications that we have received are being kept on file and will be reviewed when restrictions are lifted and our business returns to previous levels.

SUMMARY:

The Portable Power Electrician will support pre-production, on-site and post-production Eventpower operations in-house at our shop, and at event sites around the Lower Mainland. On-site duties will include the set-up, monitoring and removal of temporary power systems for concerts, festivals, sporting and special events. Pre- and post-production work will include equipment repair and maintenance, manufacturing cable & equipment for our growing inventory, equipment preparation, and client communications during the planning phases of upcoming events.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESONSIBILITIES:

  • Set up, monitor and remove portable power equipment for events throughout the Lower Mainland.
  • Maintain and repair all rental cables, distribution, and equipment (excluding generators).
  • Assist in planning projects by gathering scheduling, site planning, and electrical requirement information from clients. Ideally this position will evolve to include designing temporary power set-ups for upcoming projects.
