This is genuinely a rare and unique opportunity for an entrepreneurial senior maintenance professional to run their own cost centre and build a business around ground-breaking cutting edge and market leading technology and change how maintenance and support is delivered and executed within the industry.

You will be responsible for all maintenance and service KPI’s for projects delivered and tasked with developing a multi-discipline engineering team, ensuring the delivery of key service elements such as PPM, fault rectification and fault eradication whilst delivering written and verbal communications at all levels and fully interacting with the customer on a day-to-day basis.

Other responsibilities will include Site continuous improvement and obsolescence management whilst developing relationships with partners and supporting the UK team’s integration capability and identifying opportunities for enhancements, modifications and upgrades at every opportunity.

To be considered for this varied and challenging role it is envisaged that the successful candidate will be qualified to at least HND level in a relevant engineering discipline and able to demonstrate previous experience in a team management / team leader capacity, possessing comprehensive H&S experience and excellent IT and communication skills (both verbal and written) to ensure effective liaison with both internal and external customers and suppliers. You will demonstrate previous experience and a genuine passion and interest in working with automation technology both from an electrical and mechanical perspective, and a “Can-do” and entrepreneurial attitude along with the ambition to develop a business value stream and your own career.
