We know about food!

Delivering business success through our people
We currently have an opportunity available for Multi Skilled Engineers to work as part of the engineering team, working a rotating days and nights shift pattern. You will undertake a wide range of tasks including planned preventative maintenance and providing efficient response to breakdowns in order to maintain optimum efficiency. You will also be expected to actively seek improvement opportunities and implement those where possible to further develop the efficient and productivity of the business.
The successful candidate must hold an NVQ Level 3 or equivalent as a minimum in both Electrical and Mechnical Engineering. You must be an excellent fault finder and a good working knowledge of pneumatics, hydraulics and PLC’s. You will be expected to accurately record all maintenance work using our computerised maintenance system so strong computer skills are a must.
The role is crucial to the efficient running of the site and therefore you 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 need of the business are met. Ideally you 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.
