If you have ever been subjected to poor planning, or been left out of pocket or without the tools or equipment you need when visiting sites then maybe you should come and chat to Ideaworks. We value the knowledge, technical expertise and dedication of all our engineers.

Our Installation Engineers bring everything together on site, taking drawings and design documents and bringing them to life. If you’re a technical thinker, can think on your feet and get a kick out of solving technical issues, this is the role for you.

You’ll work from designer’s drawings, installing some of the most advanced consumer technology in the world into some of the world’s largest and most expensive homes and superyachts. You’ll get to travel both domestically and internationally, working on anything from prime residential properties in Hyde Park to 150m+ superyachts throughout Europe.


Main Responsibilities

  • This position is responsible for the installation, termination and set up of high value technologies, and custom built equipment.
  • You’ll take care of all cabling and will assist in the installation of distribution systems as well as the finished appliances, such as TVs and speakers, ensuring all joinery is fitted correctly, all labels are cut to the correct length, labelled and terminated to the headend, and all appliances are set up and ready to go.
  • We set the bar high in everything we do, and we expect all our installations to be adequately tested. This means you’ll be performing ten percent cale tests to check all cabling is correct, as well as pin to pin tests on cable points, to make sure they all tone back to the headend correctly.
  • You’ll be a frontline operator and face of the company, liaising with other trades to ensure all the correct steps are taken to ensure the installation and integration of equipment is as easy and smooth as possible.
  • We expect you to take an active role and be an authoritative voice when it comes to overcoming technical issues. Sometimes issues arise on site and it is your responsibility to feed this back to the designer, working together to ensure the issue is rectified as effectively as possible.
  • We expect our installation engineers to take pride in everything they do, working to the best of their ability at all times. In return we offer all the training you can handle alongside a vast range of benefits, and the opportunity to work at the height of technology, in some of the most breath-taking locations in the world.
  • Benefits

    From laptops to credit cards, every role at Ideaworks has individual needs. We ensure that all our staff have everything they need to excel, down to the clothes on their back. If we expect you to do your job properly, you can expect us to provide the right tools and benefits you require for your specific role.

  • Company credit card

    to charge your expenses to; because why should you spend your money and wait for a refund. Just hand in your receipts and we will take care of the rest.

  • Smartphone

    iPhones are standard issue because we manage and handle these centrally. If you ever lose your phone, the content is securely handled. That’s great news for you and our clients, as private and company information cannot be extracted from a lost phone.

  • Laptops

    Not everybody needs these, but anyone who does will get the best new laptop we can find, to allow you to work fast and efficiently.

  • Centrally held information

    Wherever you are, you can log onto our secure servers and get the most up to date information, drawings and programs relating to the project.

  • ai and internal company communication

    ai (amazing inside) is our way of keeping everybody in touch. Book a holiday, see who is working where, share news (good or bad), keep up to date on the Foosball league, access templates, project information and everything you need to work; wherever you are.

  • Travel

    There are fantastic opportunities to travel to some of the most glamorous locations in the world for those who want it. You have the choice of full time positions in the UK, Italy, South of France, or Germany (more offices planned) or just to travel to our many unique project destinations. Travel, accommodation and subsistence payments are designed to make this time away from home enjoyable.

  • Locations

    We are primarily based in Faversham, Kings Cross and Great Portland Street in London; that way we make the most of the only high-speed train connection in the UK. Travelling out from the office? We cover it. If a train doesn’t cover it, we have company pool cars for those who don’t get a company car. Regular deliveries to our projects from our Technical Centre in Faversham into London means you can travel light and fast.

  • Uniforms

    No, we don’t have a uniform. We do have shirts, jackets and safety wear so you can stay smart, safe and represent us well on our projects.

  • Training and progression

    From our Training Academy program, where we head into local schools to introduce our industry and attract the best candidates, through our Graduate Scheme that exchanges proper wages for the brightest candidates, all the way through to continued professional development of our existing teams; we know that in order to have the best skills, we have to train our staff.

    We agree with Richard Branson that we should “train people well enough so they can leave…treat them well enough so they don’t want to”.

  • Tools

    Whatever it is: phone, hammer, laptop, power tools, measuring equipment, calibration tools; we make sure you are fully tooled up for the best outcome.

  • Free fruit

    We receive a weekly fresh fruit delivery, to help you keep a balanced diet. This has become a huge hit with staff who get to enjoy fresh seasonal fruit from a local distributor, completely free of charge.

  • Take your birthday off!

    Let’s face it, not many people really like working on their birthday. That’s why we allow all our staff to take an additional day of paid holiday on their birthday. If you don’t want to come in on your birthday…don’t!

  • All the normal stuff

    Pensions, relocation, flexible working, childcare vouchers. You tell us what is important to you and we will seek to build a package that works best for your circumstances.
