Our client has been established for almost half a century and specialise in the development, implementation and support of a range of innovative and dynamic automated solutions for a diverse range of customers and applications worldwide.


Following the recent successful completion of their brand new flagship automated national distribution centre in the Chesterfield region, they are now seeking to recruit an experienced and highly self-motivated multi skilled maintenance engineer to complement their established team and undertake a range of both planned preventative and reactive breakdown maintenance activities on an array of automated machinery and materials handling equipment.

Considering the global nature of the organisation, it is also essential that successful candidates will be open minded, communicative and able to develop relationships with sister operations within the UK and overseas and will be flexible to travel if required.

The shift pattern for the site involves working a 42.9hr week on a “double days” shift pattern (ie “earlies” and “lates” – there is NO night shift) on a Monday to Friday basis, so the ability to work on this style of shift pattern is an obvious requirement.

This is genuinely an exceptional opportunity for a suitably experienced and motivated multi skilled Maintenance Engineer with an automation or distribution sector background, and to be considered for the role, it is envisaged that successful candidate will possess relevant engineering qualifications together with proven experience and success gained within a fast paced manufacturing, engineering or maintenance environment that will have essentially included automated equipment and machinery.
