This may include equipment such as simple analogue power supplies, state-of-the-art hand-held digital radios, high-end SDR radios, and high power linear amplifiers (both solid-state and valve).
In addition to the latest state-of-the-art equipment, it will be necessary from time-to-time to work on older equipment which is no-longer in production, so knowledge of this type of equipment will be of great benefit.
The successful candidate will also be required to liaise with, and support the sales team with their specific requirements to allow them to complete a sale. This may require providing technical assistance to customers, so good communication skills are a must.
Remember that our goal is to provide the customer with complete satisfaction in both our products and services, so quality working practices are also a strong requirement.

- Have knowledge of safe working practices - especially in high-voltage scenarios.
Although not a requirement, the successful candidate will benefit from having operational knowledge of digital modes such as C4FM, D-Star, DMR etc.
As the position requires significant interaction with both customers and suppliers, the successful candidate must be proficient in the English language (both verbal & written).
The successful candidate must be familiar with Windows OS & Microsoft Office.
As Martin Lynch & Sons strongly believe in quality, it will be required that the successful candidate is able to demonstrate quality practices and attention to detail in their daily activities.
