Mechanical Service Engineer


Competitive Salary DOE + Holiday + Bank Holidays + Pension

Mechanical Maintenance/Service Engineer required for a well established and growing company who supply to a growing industry. They offer a varied role and progression opportunities for the successful applicant.

The role would suit mechanically biased maintenance/service engineers from a manufacturing/FMCG background. Applicants with experience in the food or packaging industry will have a considerable advantage. This role is a new position to bring service/maintenance/installation of equipment in house rather than sub-contracting the work so naturally more senior position will come available with expansion.

The role is varied, you will be working on a range of brewing, bottling and packaging equipment. The role will involve installation of new equipment, service of machinery/equipment which is still within guarantee as well as breakdown cover and service of equipment for longstanding customers. You will attend on site jobs from one day up to two weeks, most of their customers are within the South East of England but UK wide travel can occasionally be required as well as overseas travel to visit suppliers. This is very much a hands on role.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing company within an autonomous role where you are customer facing and have a high degree of responsibility. In time there will be opportunities to progress into a more senior role and training will be provided where necessary.

The Role:

*Installation/Service/Repair of brewing, bottling and packaging and production equipment

*Predominantly mechanical maintenance working on; conveyors, valves, gearboxes, drives, inverters and pneumatics

*UK Wide Travel; most of which will be in the South East of England

*Occasional travel overseas to visit suppliers

The Person:

*Must be a mechanically biased maintenance/service engineer

*Will ideally transfer from a FMCG food or packaging background

*Must be flexible in their approach to work and be willing to travel when required
