We know about food!
Pilgrim’s Pride is the UK’s leading food solutions business, supplying all major food retailers, wholesalers and foodservice companies with a wide range of quality meat products. If you have an appetite for more, this could be the role for you.
Delivering business success through our people
We have an exciting opportunity for talented and motivated Engineers to work at our Westerleigh Site. Reporting to the Engineering Manager the successful candidates will be part of a team providing support across the site including our Abattoir, Butchery and Packing Departments.
Successful candidates will be excellent fault finders and have strong mechanical skills with a good working knowledge of pneumatics, hydraulics and PLC’s. They will also be expected to accurately record all maintenance work using our computerised maintenance system so strong computer skills are a must.
The Engineering department is crucial to the efficient running of the site and therefore applicants will be required to demonstrate excellent communication skills when liaising with internal departments and external contractors and have a flexible and proactive approach to ensure the overall needs of the business are met. Ideally applicants will have direct experience of working with food processing and packaging equipment, however familiarisation training on this specialist equipment can be provided for the right candidate.
