Our Leicester based client has been established for more than half a century and are recognised as market leaders in their niche manufacturing sector with solutions for a range of clients and applications. As a result of continued success and an ongoing programme of strategic growth, they are now actively seeking to recruit a dynamic, self-motivated and experienced Multi Skilled Maintenance professional to complement their established and professional team.

Reporting to the Site Senior Engineer, the successful maintenance engineer candidate will work on a rotating 3 shift basis of 8 hours (Monday to Friday 6-2,2-10,10-6)) and will be tasked with ensuring that all PPM is completed as required within the business structure requirements, whilst ensuring optimum levels of availability across all items of plant and equipment through efficient reactive breakdown and repair activities.

Ensuring compliance to all relevant H&S and quality legislation as appropriate, you will work as part of a team committed to the highest levels of safety, plant availability and product quality - and the lowest possible levels of energy usage and waste, working on a range of end of line packaging equipment, and both semi and fully automated converting machinery as well as various other items of special purpose machinery and materials handling systems.

In addition to PPM and reactive maintenance activities, you will also support the RCA process to feedback and progress issues with the maintenance department, and will liaise closely with the Production, Planning and Materials Management team to ensure that plant is available when required and that best practices across the group are being maintained.

To be considered for this varied and challenging maintenance engineer role, it is envisaged that the successful candidate will demonstrate relevant engineering qualifications and at least 5 years’ experience gained within a busy manufacturing maintenance department. You will be multi skilled and possess demonstrable skills in the maintenance of both electrical and mechanical systems but will also be skilled in both identifying and communicating risks (Service, Quality and Health & Safety) with the ability to recommend plans and actions to the Site Senior Engineer to mitigate them accordingly.

With excellent problem solving and communication skills at all levels, you will support the Engineering Team in identifying and sustaining continuous improvement across the department as a whole and provide guidance to junior members of the team when required.
