  • Naturally, you’ll be a team player and will be looking for that forever role.

About The Job

  • We’re looking for a Multi-skilled Mechanical / Electrical Maintenance Engineer.
  • They run a 24 hour manufacturing operation, so you will be working across days and nights, 42 hours per week.
  • You’ll be responsible for the general upkeep and repair of over 50 looms as well as some new machinery for a brand new project.
  • You will work closely with the Production Operations Manager who has been with the business for over 20 years.
  • Your role will involve regular reporting and providing updates to the management team; working in line with 5S processes.

About The Company

  • They have growth plans in place.

  • Benefits including Healthcare, higher than average Pension and Death in Service.
  • All uniform and PPE provided.
  • Onsite canteen (that’s me sold!).

All in all it is a great opportunity to work with a great bunch of people.  If it sounds like a little bit of you, then apply now.  If you don’t have a CV, please call and speak to Lucy on 0161 883 2126.
