  • Knowledge of root cause analysis & fault-finding techniques.

Previous experience in mechanical or multi-skilled engineering is essential; this could either be through an engineering apprenticeship, degree or HNC. It would be desirable if you had experience with PLC's and had previous experience in Food Manufacturing / FMCG, however any experience in relevant sector will be considered.
