The Company

Our client is one of the world's largest producers of fresh and frozen food products. With over 30 sites across the UK they employ over 15,000 people globally across 10 countries. This multi-billion pound business supplies a huge variety of products to every major supermarket, fast food and restaurant chains across the UK.

The company has enjoyed continued year on year growth since their formation in the 1980's, with the UK their largest market sector by far. Their Holbeach site, which employs over 1200 members of staff, was custom built to allow for this continued expansion and growth.

The site employs 12 full time maintenance staff to ensure that production can continue unhindered, 24/7. An opening has now arisen for an experienced Lead Electrical Maintenance Engineer to join their well-established experienced team.

The Role

The Maintenance Engineer will be performing both PPM and reactive maintenance on a wide variety of equipment used in the production of various food products, including conveyors, refrigeration systems, ovens, blast freezers, shrink wrappers, mixers, slicers, washers and weighers.

Most common faults with the PLC systems will result in sensors being knocked out of ment or electrical issues, however the fault may require minor alterations to the code via a laptop. The Lead Electrical Maintenance Engineer should be able to fault find back using a multimeter to isolate the key issue.

The Maintenance Engineer will also be responsible for fault finding and rectifying all mechanical faults. Mechanical issues could be with the pneumatics, chain or belt drives, servos or stepper motors.
