The Company

Our client has a strong foundation within the UK having been established in 1874 and has had an increase of 16.51% leading to an annual turnover of £23.6 million, with a speciality in the design and manufacture of special purpose machinery for various industries.

Our client has been growing yearly and looking to expand by hiring a further 5 engineers around the Midlands. This is thanks to an internal promotion to a Commissioning Engineer, plus additional engineers to cope with an increased workload across the service department.

The Role

The Commissioning Engineer will be required to go out to site and commission new machinery primarily, but also carrying out some upgrade and service work across the UK. Following the upgrade or service work, the engineer will also be required in some instances to train operators after the machine is set up.

The majority of the work within this role is more electrical in nature such as working on PLCs, electrical fault finding and other electrical hardware. However, as the commissioning engineer you will be required to handle a small degree of mechanical work such as working with hydraulics and pneumatics. Alongside the electrical and mechanical work, you will be required to make modifications to PLC software so that the machinery can continue the automated process.

The role is UK wide, therefore there is a degree of overnight staying required as part of the role. Usually, you can be away for 1-2 weeks at a time, however this can be longer depending on the job and location, but this will never be more than a month.


The Candidate

To be successful for this role:

  • Hold a recognised electrical qualification
  • Must be able to Fault Find with a Multimeter
  • Must hold a Full UK Driving Licence
  • Be able to interrogate and modification of PLCs.



Due to the specialised nature of the client’s machinery, full product training is provided plus a gas qualification. Furthermore, the client is particularly keen in recruiting ex Service Personnel, with a background in engineering.
