Time-Lapse and CCTV Camera Engineer

Job Summary


This is a great opportunity to work in our rapidly expanding time-lapse business. Time-lapse Solutions install time-lapse cameras on sites throughout the UK but mainly in the South East of England. Our systems are very high quality, innovative, competitively priced; we are flexible, likeable and easy to work with. That is why the biggest names in construction, development and Government are working with us to install time-lapse systems on the some biggest and most exciting projects in the UK.


We are looking for someone to join our team based just outside Guildford. Initially you will work with colleagues but it is expected that, after training, you will be able to work independently. This is a varied, creative and, at times challenging role. It involves the set-up, installation and management of time-lapse systems across many sites.


This means that not only do you need to be computer-literate; you will be able to talk to our customers confidently, solve their problems and, of course, be able to install the cameras. You don’t need to be strong but you do need to be fit. Also you will have a full driving license. Above all you will be excited by the technology. We will give you all the training and qualifications that you will need.


You will be frequently working outside and sometimes working at heights.


This job is suitable for anyone of any gender or age. No experience is essential but any experience of the construction industry, technology or filming would be helpful. We are flexible and child friendly. We will consider part time or even job share options.


Responsibilities and Duties


We understand that there is a lot to learn here. And most of it will be very new. You will get a lot of support and training: both formal and informal. As long as you are interested and motivated you will do very well.


The key duties are:


Site Visits – you will be required to visit potential sites for time-lapse cameras, discuss with clients the best location for the camera and agree safest installation methods. You will be trained to write method statements and perform risk assessments.


Set-up of time-lapse systems – time-lapse cameras are set-up at our offices in Guildford. This includes managing camera stock, configuring the cameras, building solar systems, setting up routers to connect to the Cloud, setting up storage systems and website to access the images. It sounds complex but their clear systems and processes to complete these tasks.


Installation of time-lapse systems – you will be required to safely install the time-lapse systems on the customer’s sites. There will be clear method statements but it is essential that you are able to work closely with the client. Some of the work will involve working at height. Full training will be given.


Management and support of time-lapse systems – customers sometimes need support in the management of their time-lapse systems. Most of the support will be provided over the phone but some will be onsite. You need to be flexible and a problem-solver but in the end it is about experience. We’ll give you a lot of support.


Research and development – the fun bit. We need to constantly improve. We are always working on new ideas and products. There is so much new technology for cameras, drones and networking. We need you to help us research it.


You will be part of a small time-lapse team that consists of a sales and marketing (2 people), set-up, support and installation (2 people). You will answer directly to the manager of the team.


There are big opportunities for learning, development and promotion.
