Opportunity

An excellent opportunity to work for a successful £10m per year + turnover business founded nearly 40 years ago. A family run company with over 100 members of staff, and a growing client base. You'll come in as part of a small maintenance team overseeing the department, meaning there will be a mix of hands on and office based work. The business are well respected within their industry manufacturing products for both UK market and oversees.

The Role

You'll be fairly hands on in your role, with mechanical and electrical skills. This role is probably 80:20 Mechanical to Electrical and operates predominantly on a simple 8 - 4.30 day shift. You'll cover the maintenance of the entire plant, with another technician who will report into you. The plant is quite large and contains, multiple, power presses, roll mills and predominantly operates hydraulically and pneumatically. You'll also cover the maintenance of the equipment used for manufacture, hand tools, rivet guns etc will also be covered by the maintenance team. You'll get the opportunity to develop a more sophisticated PPM schedule than they have on site at present which will be all of your own work, you'll also get the opportunity to be proactive in looking at things that can affect production and propose changes and take the lead on Cl Initiatives.

On the electrical side, the site runs on 3phase power so you'll need to be comfortable fixing motors, fault finding and completing maintenance on associated equipment of this nature. The technician who you work with is strictly mechanical in his background so we certainly need some solid electrical skills. You'll also get some control with the finance manager of budget and managing orders or parts etc so there is a good degree of responsibility available in this position.
This is a predominantly days based role 7.30 - 4.30 Mon - Friday, on occasion throughout the year they may run until 9pm meaning you may be required to come in later and work until slightly later in the evening, but this is only during very busy periods. You can also cover additional hours through OT as well.

An excellent opportunity to work for a successful £10m per year + turnover business founded nearly 40 years ago. A family run company with over 100 members of staff, and a growing client base.

As a business they serve the HVAC marketplace, manufacturing a wide range of products mainly utilising the metal fabrication process mainly utilized in the industrial and commercial sectors of the construction and building trades.

The Candidate

You'll be someone with new ideas, who wants a role where you can maybe step up from an out and out maintenance role into a leadership based position. You'll want to develop the company and take the maintenance department by the scruff of the neck, it is something that runs fairly well at present but can be a run a lot more efficiently, which is where you come in. You'll be able to turn your hand to most things, from industrial machinery faults, to developing a PPM schedule and suggesting improvements on site. You'll be strong mechanically and have some solid basic electrical experience. You'll need a spark and energy about you, you'll have a degree of flexibility, as the role although predominantly days based Monday to Friday, does require potentially working more flexible hours during very busy periods. You'll like the idea of working as a lead engineer or supervisor and taking a technician under your wing and developing them as well.

Qualifications

Mechanical Engineering Level 2/3 NVQ or C&G or equivalent Basic Electrical Knowledge of Qualification
