They will supply to all the major supermarkets like Morrison's, Tesco's, Asda, Mark's and Spencer's and many more. With a turnover of more than £100m and growing, they are looking for another Maintenance Engineer to join their fantastic team.

This site employs over 600 people across production, engineering and logistics. They also have their product development function based on this site to produce new and exciting recipes.

On day one you will be put through any training necessary and an induction will be taken place. After any shadowing and training needed you will then be required to attend any breakdowns and carry out any PPM's / Tasks delegated to yourself and be able to work off your own initiative.

- Must be multiskilled with either a Mechanical or Electrical bias.
