My client, the UK’s largest online grocery retailer is looking for multiple Maintenance Technicians to join their brand new fully automated distribution centre in Erith that is set to go live in 2018. The company are true market leaders operating a turnover of £1 Billion in which over 500,000 customers contributed to this last year.

About the role

As a Maintenance Technician you will be seen as the first line of response to breakdowns on automated equipment, including robotics, belt conveyors, automated cranes, shuttle systems, sortation machines, pick and place equipment and collect and retrieval systems. You will be responsible for troubleshooting, ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum and improving equipment efficiency.

As a maintenance technician you will hold a minimum of a level 2 qualification (Electrical or Mechanical), have a fantastic passion for engineering, good problem-solving skills and be an excellent communicator. You will be able to use initiative when working alone and have the ability to learn quickly on the job.

You will have some practical experience working on automated equipment such as conveyors and sortation equipment. This role would be ideal for people leaving apprenticeship or military personnel wishing to forge a career in automation.

The benefits

Maintenance technicians with the right skill set can be fast tracked into engineer roles once completing a probationary period, these positions pay a starting salary of £43,000. From there the possibilities are endless; if you were looking to progress into a PLC controls expert, there is chance for that. Similarly, if you were looking to go down a man management route and progress into supervisory roles there is also chance for that. You will also get to work on the UK’s most state of the art robotic machinery, not found anywhere else in the UK.

Due to there being multiple vacancies live on this site, we are offering £250 worth of vouchers for any technician or Maintenance Engineer you can recommend that passes a probationary peopd.
