  • An installation would typically involve electrical wiring the product to the customers existing production line and integrating it to their process, this can involve setting up IP addresses and networking, so a degree of IT proficiency is required

The Person:

  • An electrical qualification is required to be considered for this field service engineer role and the client is ideally looking for an NVQ level 3 in electrical as standard.
  • This is a customer facing role, so personality is key. You need to be able to communicate well with customers and be able to build a great relationship with them
  • The company does have a large team of regionally based engineers so you will focus on the local customer base but there will be the need to travel and work away from home during the week

Benefits:

  • The successful field service engineer can expect full product training on complex equipment to develop your skills

  • A structured progression plan that increases your salary as you get stronger in the role
  • Job security of working mainly in the food/fmcg industry for a company that have not furloughed anyone during the pandemic - the business is strong
  • It’s a rare field service role where you get to be out and about but not living out of a suitcase and be back home most nights
