Job Description

Our client specialises in the design, build and installation of bespoke control systems, factory automation systems and machinery, vision inspection, plastic container handling and robotics.
We’re looking to appoint an automation service engineer. In this role, you will be bringing our customers’ automation aspirations to life, working across a variety of industry sectors (predominantly in food and beverage and plastic container handling) and working on some truly ground-breaking projects.

A lot of what we do is typically bespoke to our customers and to date there’s not been an automation challenge we’ve not been able to support or that we have walked away from.

The role:
You will be required to work both in-house and on customers’ sites, responsible for bringing our projects to life with electrical installation on customers site, machinery commissioning as well as post purchase servicing of machinery and breakdown support. You will also be required to install control panels, manage the onsite wiring process and be enthusiastic for learning, especially vision inspection systems. All this and more, while ensuring every project, you touch is delivered to the highest possible standards and in a timely fashion.
It is likely you will be deployed week to week to different locations, mainly around the UK and Ireland but you should expect worldwide travel on occasion. It is rare that you will be expected to stay over a weekend but this can happen, especially on overseas projects. When you are not travelling, you will be in our workshop understanding the latest project and/or machinery.

To be considered for the role, you will:
• Ideally be an apprentice trained and/or qualified electrical fitter
• Be able to interpret engineering drawings (electrical a must, mechanical a plus)
• Have sound experience of automation machinery
• Have a high-level understanding of industrial control systems / PLC programming
• Have experience working with pneumatic systems and valves
• Have experience of industrial networks
• Be hard working and a great ambassador for the company
• Be a team player and have a great attitude
• Follow written instructions and method statements
• Familiar with working in hygienic environments and health and safety requirements
• Be experienced at working on medium sized assemblies and sub-assemblies
• Have a good eye for detail and able to work on their own and as part of a team
• Be willing to learn and improve

Key Requirements:
• Self-starter with the maturity to be able to work with minimal supervision but equally, knows when support is needed
• Neat and tidy / organised working
• Strong communication skills / polite and conscientious in dealing with customers and key stakeholders to inspire confidence
• Punctual and trustworthy
• Fluent in English (second language is a plus)
• A ‘can do’ attitude
• Willingness to travel/work away from home on a regular basis (majority UK, but also abroad) – approx. 70%
• Full UK driving licence (with 3 penalty points or less)
• Presentable and articulate

If this sounds like you, then here’s what’s on offer:
• Good rate of pay (depending on experience)
• Potential for overtime during busy periods
• Company car/truck 
• Opportunity to earn spot bonuses/awards for outstanding contributions
• Contributory Pension Scheme (after probationary period)
• 21 days holiday per annum plus statutory holidays
• Additional holiday for long service
• Private Health Insurance for you, your partner and children (after probationary period)
• Cycle to work scheme (after probationary period)
• Great opportunities for progression

Normal Hours: Monday-Thursday 08.00 to 17.00, Friday 08.00 to 14.00
