Your new Company

Our client is a very large player in the packaging industry in Birmingham, and following recent operational changes are looking to expand the team to include two maintenance engineers focusing on the manufacturing facilities.

Your new Job

Working in small teams, you will be an expert in managing your own workloads, initially reacting to machine down time, and taking the lead to implement a PPM system for the factory. You'll be working closely with the production supervisors and management team to supply the agreed level of service to the machines, and increase factory output by decreasing downtime and breakdowns. You'll be responsible for the maintenance, servicing and overhaul of manufacturing machinery, including mechanical breakdowns such as motor replacements, pneumatics, bearings, gearing, roller systems and electrical repairs and installation ranging from new to existing installations being bought up to industry standards.

Skills you need to succeed

You'll see yourself as a good all around electro-mechanical engineer, with a minimum of a level C&G or NVQ 3 diploma in electrical/mechanical manufacturing engineering or an equivalent, and also C&G 18th Edition qualified. Your experience has seen you with at least 5 years in manufacturing and FMCG environments with both electrical and mechanical work, preferably with a time served apprenticeship, and you will have had experience in team leadership and running maintenance schedules. To make yourself really stand out from the crowd, you'll have PLC experience, specifically on Siemens and Omron devices, excellent technical skills, and experience with aged machines (for example Cobden and Beasley machines) and excellent all around technical knowledge.
You will be a very driven and hands on individual who is not afraid of a challenge, or taking charge when needs be, and also be able to train others on the job where required. If you can speak Urdu, Hindi and/or Punjab that would also be an advantage.

What this opportunity will do for you

This is an excellent opportunity to join a large company and fill a role that has been missing for sometime. If you want to be in an environment where you will have a tough challenge, but be able to see results that are almost instant, then this is the role for you. The salary on offer is negotiable for the right person, and interviews are available.
