As a company that pride themselves on being at the forefront of technology, their innovative products deliver tried and tested solutions for the modern car enthusiasts both on small and large scale.

Due to huge expansion earlier in 2018, our client now requires a Maintenance Engineer to join their team.

The Role

The Maintenance Engineer will be responsible for all electrical and mechanical fault finding and rectification work on production systems site wide. This will include fault diagnosis on drive systems, motors, relays, contactors and sensors. You will also be responsible for all mechanical work including replacing gearboxes, shafts, pulleys and bearings.

Production equipment includes silos, mixers, process plant, conveyor systems, weighing machinery, canning lines and pumps.

The Candidate

This position would suit a more mechanically focused Maintenance Engineer with an interest and understanding of electrical work/principles and components.

To be successful in your application you must have the following skills, abilities or qualifications:

  • Must have previous experience working as an Electrical or Mechanical Maintenance Engineer
  • Ideally a recognised Apprenticeship, City & Guilds Level 2/3 or NVQ Level 2/3

The client is particularly keen to hear from anyone who has experience in the following:

  • ATEX or COMPEX qualification
  • Previous experience working within an explosive environment would be a huge advantage
  • Packaging or process control equipment


As part of the induction, the successful Maintenance Engineer would receive fantastic initial training alongside a more Senior Engineer to fully understand the processes. There is also the opportunity for the successful Maintenance Engineer to receive ATEX training.
