Islington Council has a number of exciting opportunities for qualified domestic gas engineers within its in house repairs and maintenance service.

Reporting to the Senior Mechanical Engineer, the Lead Domestic Gas Engineer will play a key role in ensuring the safe and efficient operation of domestic gas appliances within the borough. As well as completing annual Landlord gas safety checks to approximately 10,000 properties in the north of the borough, the gas service is also responsible for completing responsive breakdown repairs and successful candidates will have an aptitude for both areas of work.
