You will need a minimum of 4 A-C GCSE including Maths, English and ideally a Science subject or a current engineering qualification can be included.  We are looking for people who are self-motivated, have a willingness to learn, are able to work as part of a team, have resilience, are adaptable and are communitive and outgoing.

£6.25 – £8.21 per hour depending on age and experience.

The wider package includes workplace pension, *private healthcare and *death in service – subject to a qualifying period and company profit share bonus. On-site parking and workwear provided.

Maintenance Engineer

Due to ongoing growth and restructuring, we have a need to recruit a Maintenance Engineer to join our maintenance team.

Applicants must be electrically biased and possess a knowledge of PLC’s, hydraulics and pneumatics, and while experience of plastic injection moulding machines would be an advantage it is not essential as we favour positive work ethics and shared company values over experience.

Working hours: day shifts 6:00am – 2:00pm / 2:00pm – 10:00pm, rotating weekly.

Our ideal candidate will be extremely reliable and have a great ‘can do’ attitude, be able to prioritise work effectively and competently so that repairs are resolved quickly with minimal downtime; note we would consider an applicant part-way through their apprenticeship who can clearly demonstrate these qualities.

The basic salary will be in the range of £28,000 – £32,000 depending on the candidate, with the possibility of overtime. The wider package includes workplace pension, private healthcare and profit share bonus. On-site parking and workwear provided. Generous 32 days’ holidays (increasing with years of service) to include Christmas shutdown and bank holidays.

If you have the relevant experience for this role, we would like to hear from you.
