Maintenance Engineer / Fitter
As a Maintenance Engineer / Mechanical Fitter, you’re used to getting your head down, getting stuck into equipment and solving problems.
But sometimes, you look up. What do you see?
How about prospects for growth and career progression? An industry-leading brand as an employer? Overtime and bonuses?
We’re a progressive business that rewards and respects its employees. It’s no wonder our staff turnover is low, with some members of our team pushing over 25 years’ service.
The site you’ll be joining is set to receive major investment, with lots of new equipment, machinery and technology on the way over the next five years.
And you’ll be in a great location in which to live and work; Buxton is easily accessible and an attractive market town in the heart of the Peak District.
In our next Fitter, we’re looking for a composed, focused and confident character – someone who is comfortable working on their own but not afraid to shout up, and mix it up, when necessary.
