Job Description

Electrical Maintenance Engineer
Liverpool
Shift 6/2 and 2/10 Monday to Friday
Contract 3/6 months - £18.50 per hour for Ltd Contractor (Plus plenty overtime paid at time 1/2 and double time)

Opportunity

An excellent opportunity to work for a successful manufacturing business with facilities in over 7 countries Europe Wide. Does the opportunity to work for a well-regarded business with widespread investment in both its technology and people across the site. We currently have a 5/6 month contract opportunity to join the maintenance team due to an engineer being off sick for the foreseeable future. You'll get to work a range of equipment, as the site has over 10 different manufacturing lines, were looking for someone with a good level of electrical experience and basic level of mechanical understanding.

The Role

You'll be one of the reactive engineers on site, a range of different lines on site, working as the first point of call for maintenance. You'll work covering, maintenance, faults, and reactive repair work and will require you to run a tight PPM schedule as downtime on lines has serious knock on effects on the rest of the plant. You'll have some familiarity ideally dealing manufacturing machinery in a large plant and won't mind working on shift, the role at present is 6/2 for one week and 2/10 for the next week, at present there is no nights based requirement but this could change in the future. The majority of the issues you'll be looking after will be electrical and you'll work alongside a mechanical engineer, meaning there will be 6 and 4 engineers on shift depending on which shift you're on.
Ideally you'll be someone to bring in some fresh ideas, an engineer who can think outside the box and help develop their PPM schedule which the team have openly admitted needs some improvement.

This role is a shift based role, and means you work for a total of 40hours per week plus overtime optionally on top of this

The Candidate

You'll be someone with good hands on experience, who can hit the ground running and who wants to come in and make a difference. You'll have plenty of support off line managers and will be able to escalate issues if required to engineering managers. This is a metal packaging manufacturing site, so if you have some from packaging great, however we can consider any fast paced manufacturing environment experience. Should you be an experienced contractor you will have likely worked in a number of different sectors within manufacturing which would be great. Technically you'll want to test yourself and learn new things, you'll be strong electrically and have some good mechanical understanding. Electrically you're looking at repairs, fault finding and maintenance both planned and reactive on sensors, e-stops, understanding and interpreting schematics, motors, basic PLC work (fault finding but this isn't essential, they use Siemens and Mitsubishi).

Package

£18.50 per hour through an LTD Company
