Description: Multi skilled, mechanically biased field service engineer required to undertake PPM and reactive breakdown repairs as well as service & installation activities on a range of special purpose machinery.

Our client has been established for half a century and specialise in the planned preventative and reactive maintenance and repair of the complete range of special purpose waste processing machinery, and as a result of continued success and an ongoing programme of strategic growth, are now seeking to recruit a multi skilled Field Service Engineer to complement their established and professional team.

It is an essential requirement for this Field Service Engineer position that you are a multiskilled engineer with the ability to maintain and repair hydraulic and electrical circuits, have a good mechanical knowledge and be able to carry out basic fabrication activities.
