Are you a night owl, seeking a more challenging career in an innovative and fast-paced automation environment?

Night shifts. Let’s be honest, they’re not for everyone. However, to some, they present unique benefits when compared to day shifts - less traffic to deal with during your commute, the convenience of seeing to your daily activities during the day without needed to hurry, more responsibility on shift allowing you to learn new skills, less disruption so you can get on with your work, and fewer meetings!

If this is you, then we’re currently looking to recruit a Maintenance Engineer to work at our client’s site, Sainsbury’s, which is fully automated for their TU clothing brand. TGW took over the maintenance contract a year ago and now has a team of six Maintenance Engineers who service, maintain and improve the automated garment hanging garment solution.

Having recently gone live with a new extension to the automated solution, there is a unique opportunity to get involved with the continual improvement of the new system, working closely with the TGW team, Sainsbury’s operational teams and 3rd parties.

You’ll have the opportunity to expand your technical skills, as training will be provided on the solution including Beckhoff PLCs and PPM systems.

What you’ll do on a typical night:

  • Maintain, service and improve the automated hanging garment system (Dürkopp) along with other automated equipment.
  • Your electrical, mechanical and software skills will be put to the test every shift, whether it’s replacing a transfer conveyor gate, re-wiring a 3-phase motor or fault-finding on the control panels or PLC (Beckhoff).
  • Liaise with Sainsbury’s own operational teams during your shift, ensuring they’re kept updated on any PPM work or during breakdowns.

The shift pattern is 10:30pm-6:30am Monday-Friday, with the opportunity to cover a couple of shifts of overtime per month.

About you:

  • Electrically-biased Engineer, preferably with an electrical apprenticeship or qualification
  • Excellent communication skills and customer focus
  • Ability to work in a time critical environment
It would also be great if you also had previous experience maintaining and servicing PLC-controlled equipment (e.g. conveyors, cranes, robots, sorters, packers, etc.).
