Maintenance Engineer - Multi Skilled - DAYS - £31500 to £33k

We have an opportunity for a multi skilled Maintenance Engineer to join one of the largest food groups in the UK but within a small Engineering team. The site is very process based where the function is the processing of raw material in bulk and then the packaging into 16kg bags or bulk containers.

The Engineering Manager is very supportive, really knows his stuff and has a great working relationship with a small team of 3 Engineers. In this role there is no doubt that some of the mechanical fitting can be quite heavy and the environment can be hot and dusty but there is a great team, a real lets do this together mentality making this a happy working environment.

Equipment across the site consists of rotating equipment, a lot of heavy pipework, fans, blowers, pumps and compressors. You will be working in junction boxes and in panels so working knowledge of 3 phase systems, motors, inverter drives and similar will be needed. You don't need to be a PLC expert, they contract someone else to do that so you will only conduct basic fault finding. Mechanical skills will be needed as you will support in working on and replacing gear boxes, drive arrangements, pumps and other similar equipment that requires mechanical fitting.

You will be looked after in this role, the company pension is up top 10% which really is very high and a great benefits package to support this. Working patterns once you are up to speed will be 4 days Monday to Thursday one week and 4 days Wednesday to Saturday the next. Some on call duties will be needed once you are familiar with the plant however you are paid in extra time off and in honesty, it very rarely rings.

If you want to be part of this happy, productive engineering team and hold recognised electrical qualifications with mechanical skills please submit your CV for a quick response
