Full Time

Are you an Engineer who has management experience or are looking to step into a role for your first exposure to managing? Then this may be for you...

Our client is a leading food manufacturer, supplying excellent, delicious products to the major retailers. It is a fast-moving manufacturing business, with a mixture of automated and labour intensive lines.

In order to make the team complete, we are looking to recruit a Multi-Skilled Lead Engineer with specialisms in Electrical and Mechanical disciplines.

Although the aim of an Engineering department is to keep on top of the maintenance of machines within a business so that breakdowns do not occur. However, no matter how excellent the PPM schedule there is, breakdowns do occur. The Lead Engineer will be instrumental in managing their team to ensure that breakdowns are repaired as quickly and efficiently as possible, keeping downtime to an absolute minimum.

The Lead Engineer will be an inspirational, natural leader, who has a real skill in leading people. You will love the challenge of organising your team and making sure they are in the right place as required.

There is also the potential to be involved in NPD projects, assisting the Development team in finding ways around how to process new ideas with existing kit - no two days are ever the same in this environment.

You will be a real people person. The nature of the Engineer is to be a vital part of the whole site - without your team to make things happen, fix things and maintain the process it would not happen. You are indispensable as a department!

So, if you are multi-skilled in Electrical and Mechanical specialisms (with an electrical bias), have a recognised apprenticeship or relevant work experience, and ideally have worked in an FMCG environment then we would love to hear from you. Send in your CV today!

To assist you searching for a role by location - we have added a generic postcode, when uploading the advert, that designates the centre of the county in which this job is found. You may not see this on certain job boards.
