The company:
Our client specialises in the packaging and distribution of various vegetable products. With various sites throughout the UK. This multimillion-pound business can handle a huge variety of vegetables from potatoes to broccoli.

The business was founded over 120 years ago, but through natural growth and acquisition they have become one the leading business in the UK market.

The company are also very keen on developing their staff. As such they are more than happy to pay for any qualifications or training for employees as long as it is relevant to the needs of the business. Currently they have engineers completing both City & Guilds and HNC qualifications.

The role:
The business currently has need of a Multiskilled Maintenance Engineer to join their established team. The department has a tried and tested PPM schedule which is currently running at 70%, thus a lot of the day to day maintenance of the lines will revolve around the routine maintenance.

Lines include washers, multihead weighers, pumps, filters, belt conveyors (belt, chain and mesh), agitators, shakers, effluent plant, baggers, flow wrappers and pallet wrappers. Some site maintenance would also be required.

The role is roughly 50% mechanical and 50% electrical. Although all the lines are PLC controlled, the Multiskilled Maintenance Engineers would not need to go into the code and make any adjusts. It would be necessary to fault find on inputs and outputs against electrical drawings.

  • Must be able to fault find both mechanically and electrically.
  • Must be able to fault find on electrical systems using a multimeter.
