  • Provide quick and effective response to breakdowns in more than one area on site, where possible identifying root cause and suggesting possible improvements to prevent further breakdowns
  • Communicate unscheduled breakdowns to the Engineering Shift Manager / Principal Engineer and work with the operations department to minimise plant disruption

To apply for this Maintenance Engineer role, your soft skills, expertise and experience should include:

  • Familiarity with process machinery or equivalent equipment and the ability to fault find
  • Strong electrical engineering skills. 
  • Basic knowledge of PLC's & HMI's.
  • Mechanical fitting skills
  • Machining, welding and fabrication experience (advantageous)

In return for your passion, collaborative approach and commitment, you'll receive a generous salary of £44,000 to £48,000 p/a and a benefits package and join a friendly and inclusive culture.
