Our client is recognized as one of the UK’s market leaders in the area of automated materials handling solutions, and as a result of continued success and a planned programme of strategic growth, they are now looking to recruit a multi discipline Maintenance Site Supervisor to complement their established and successful existing team.

Reporting to the Site Support Manager, the site operates on a 24/5 basis, and with the company priding itself on the high quality service it provides to it’s customers across the country, it is essential that they now recruit a similarly committed and highly professional maintenance site supervisor to coordinate the activities of a multi skilled team tasked with ensuring equipment is maintained to the highest standards and the systems meet the required demands.

Working on an alternative shift pattern of 6am to 2pm and 2pm to 10pm Monday to Friday, the supervisor role is instrumental in sustaining a culture of continuous improvement at the site, as well as ensuring that H&S standards are maintained and assisting with the implementation of new initiatives to maintain the smooth running of the site. Working as part of a team of 7 engineers, the role of Supervisor is effectively split 70/30 between supervisory and engineering administration activities, with H&S as a core value and the ability to identify, implement, analyse and review continuous improvement and 5S / lean activities within a busy distribution centre environment.

Other responsibilities for this varied and challenging role will include standing in for the Site Support Manager in all meetings and ensuring the smooth running of the site when he is off-site, and undertaking toolbox talks as well as actively identifying potential risks to the team and assisting in their elimination whilst maintaining appropriate documentation. You will also be responsible for monitoring KPl's for the site and producing reports for the management team as required, whilst maintaining site spares / stock levels and re-ordering of spares as required, and updating training records, time sheets, holidays and arranging cover engineers as appropriate.

With previous successful experience gained in the leadership and management of a site based multi skilled maintenance team, you will be responsible for all quality management systems on site so will possess previous experience in this area, and will both organise and plan all site maintenance activities and issue service schedule tasks to the engineers as necessary, as well as assisting in the training of new staff and dealing with any issues arising from this task, as well as issuing and closing off site work permits as required.

This is an exceptional opportunity for an enthusiastic and self motivated maintenance engineer to join a team responsible for the ongoing efficiency of fully automated cranes and conveyor systems that handle more than 40,000 pallets per month.
