Pilgrim’s UK Ltd is pleased to announce a key and exciting opportunity at our Ashton site.

Multi-skilled with electrical and mechanical qualifications, with experience of breakdown and preventative maintenance, the successful candidate – working with the Engineering Team Leaders and the wider engineering team – will work on 4 on 4 off shift pattern (5am until 5pm days, 5pm – 5am nights) ensuring compliance and planned maintenance targets are met by providing the appropriate technical support.

The successful candidate will be highly self-motivated, have enthusiasm for achieving exceptional results and be able to work effectively both on their own initiative and as part of a wider team. Experience of working in the food industry would be advantageous along with a clear understanding and awareness of legislative, health and safety and environmental requirements.

An understanding of continuous improvement would be an advantage enabling the successful candidate to work with the engineering team to drive the change from a “reactive culture” to an “proactive culture” by enhancing equipment performance and reliability by coaching and developing technical skills and knowledge in the maintenance teams.

A formal engineering apprenticeship and relevant academic qualifications to suit your experience is essential for this role as is proven hands on mechanical and electrical experience.

If you are as serious about food as we are and ready to help us make a difference, we would like to hear from you.
