Machine Commissioning Engineer (Controls / Software)

Leicester - circa £35,000 + overtime

My Leicester-based client is an established, and respected market leader in the engineering and manufacturing sectors.

As a direct result of increasing orders, tender wins and sustained growth, we are now seeking to appoint a Commissioning Engineer, whose main responsibilities will be to develop and commission the controls for automated machines.

The successful candidate is likely to have previously worked as a Maintenance Technician or Commissioning Engineer, on automated or robotic machinery, and as a minimum, should be familiar with PLC and HMI.

Applicants should be qualified in Electrical / Electronic Engineering or a related subject, and you will be expected to have a basic understanding of Mechanical work as well.

This is a workshop and site-based role and will involve extensive travel throughout the UK (and occasionally abroad). As such, candidates will be expected to have excellent customer service skills and be able to build a strong rapport with colleagues and clients alike.

This is an important role within the business and provides an excellent opportunity to join a successful Engineering company that can offer on-going training and development for applicants seeking to build on previous experience.

Basic salary is expected to be around £35,000 with the potential to earn another £5-7K with overtime. A company vehicle is also provided for the role.

Optrec Ltd specialise in the recruitment of skilled Engineers throughout the UK. We have been appointed by the client to provide Employment Agency services on their behalf.
