We have vacancies for talented Maintenance Engineers across all 4 of our sites. 3 of our sites are on the Chichester Food Park and we have one site in Selsey.

A day in the life of our Engineers:

We use some FMCG cutting edge technology here, as well as some more longstanding bits of kit, so you will be working with robotics and automation, alongside standard manufacturing machinery - so you'll need to be flexible and eager to learn and develop your existing skills to meet the needs of your site.

As a member of our dedicated Engineering team you will get stuck into project installations, Improvement works and general Repair & Maintenance within our food manufacturing environments.

Our engineers are self-managed, self motivated and don't shy away from solving problems. With a safety focus at the forefront of everything they do they're enthusiastic, energetic and eager to make a difference.

If you feel like you would be a good fit then we would love to hear from you.
