This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to join a highly successful engineering team with a broad range of skills and attributes.


The successful candidate will be expected to work evenings and weekends as part of a shift rota to cover specific customer contract hours.

You will have excellent customer facing skills as well as technical ability. The ability to diagnose and resolve complex faults is vital and you will be expected to keep the customer informed throughout this process. Maximising equipment availability and keeping our customers operational is of utmost importance and you will be expected to demonstrate a proactive approach ensuring this is the case. The systems you will work on are highly complex and require quick learning and understanding; you will also require the ability to rapidly identify the nature of complex issues and to provide optimal solutions.
