Sark Electricity searching for new director

The ‘unique opportunity’ requires prospective directors to move to the island Credit: ITV Channel TV

The boss of Sark Electricity is advertising for a new Operations Director to run the company in the island.

The job advertisement, which can be seen on Linkedin, states they want a hands on person who can keep the power on constantly.

The ‘unique opportunity’ requires prospective directors to move to the island with housing provided and a ‘generous’ pay.

I'm looking to speak to specifically hands on Operations Managers/Directors with an energy background, ideally power engineering, and Electrical Engineering experience. [It’s] a very hands on role.

The business is very small with circa 500 customers which is the population of the island and as a result they are the only supplier, meaning no competition. We require a hands-on Ops Director who can keep the power supply on constantly - the role requires some form of engineering background (ideally electrical) to provide solutions to any problems which may arise ensuring consistent 24 hours supply to the island.

The job advertisement comes after an ongoing dispute between the company and islanders over the price of electricity.
