This is a superb career development opportunity with a highly successful global manufacturing group which has a heavy programme of capital investment in its plant operations. The company has a large footprint throughout Europe and Scandinavia and it is a leader in its sector with a commitment to be best-in-class in equipment and technology.
This key role forms part of the senior engineering group-wide resource which has responsibility for a range of project activity arising from major capital investment programmes, equipment upgrades and continuous improvement activities. Working as part of a team your focus will be on the automation elements of new investments at plant level. The role is varied in complexity, duration and geography and will involve short periods on active sites of approximately 1 week’s duration on a regular basis with further background activity following on from your base in the UK. Longer term this role could involve projects further afield in USA, Far East and Australasia and clearly given the size and spread of the Group the career potential going forward for the successful candidate is significant.
A high calibre individual who combines the technical skills and headroom to do more is required. You will need to be a qualified engineer, at or near Chartered status, with significant project experience in large complex automated or semi-automated process industry or manufacturing environments. Experience in electro-mechanical systems, materials handling, PLC’s, robotics and fully automated manufacturing technologies is essential.
Early career experience will have been within a large world-class manufacturing environment and you will now be seeking the senior level opportunities longer term which this high investment Group can offer. You will also need to have excellent communications skills and the ability to work under your own initiative and combine this with a “can do” attitude and commercial common sense. The UK location for this role is either between SW Midlands or W Yorkshire on one of the Group’s leading UK sites and relocation assistance can be provided where necessary.
The benefits package is very comprehensive and includes an attractive negotiable base salary and is as expected of a recognised global manufacturer and will reflect the fact that the client intends to attract the best talent available for this key role.
