A mostly workshop based service role retrofitting and reconditioning electrically powered pumping equipment

Your new company
This is a long-established manufacturing organisation with a diverse and advanced product range that go into a variety of industries. The company have recently retained a large contract alongside their core business that will guarantee further stability company-wide. This opportunity has arisen within one of their specialist divisions that supply to the automotive sector. The company has excellent staff retention, due to their core values being driven through every department, creating an enjoyable and engaging working atmosphere.

Your new role
This is an electro-mechanical role that involves both retro-fitting/adaptation of new equipment and reconditioning of equipment that has been returned from the field for repair/service. The devices are electrically powered pumping equipment that are often deployed in fairly harsh environments. You role is to strip and clean the devices and overhaul them so they're ready to be returned to the field. You will also provide support to customers by installing and commissioning equipment and providing general technical support. This is mostly a workshop-based role, but there will be occasional travel to customer sites, including some European travel (though the vast majority would be within the UK). Regular working hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday-Friday.

What you'll need to succeed
We are looking for an engineer with mechanical engineering skills and a basic knowledge of electrical systems (a recognised electrical qualification would be an advantage). You will have previously worked in a relevant role and ideally within a regulated industry (eg. working to standards of compliance). You'll be available for occasional travel to client sites in the UK and Europe and have the confidence and ability to work under your own steam a lot of the time. Finally, you'll have good communication skills and be comfortable talking with client representatives.

What you'll get in return
This is a long-established company that provide a stable work environment. Upon starting you will be entitled to 22 days holiday (plus bank holidays) rising to 23 days after 12 months and later 24. You are eligible to join their contributory pension scheme upon starting your employment, while other benefits are available after completing your probation period.
