Able to take a responsible approach to Health, Safety and Environmental risks in relation to your own job role and others, you will control such risks or report them to coordinators or the management team appropriately and will respond to immediate machinery breakdowns and perform fault diagnosis and repair activities on a range of equipment, liaising with suppliers and other maintenance/technical support from machine manufacturers where required. 

You will specify replacement parts and tools as well as conducting PPM, including servicing, inspecting, periodic tests, and cleaning plant and other associated equipment and overhaul and replace mechanical parts as required. 

Working on a Monday to Thursday (8am to 5pm) and Friday (8am to 12 noon) this is an excellent opportunity for a mechanically biased maintenance professional with a meticulous attention to detail approach to join an established and highly successful progressive Midlands manufacturing operation offering both stability and career progression for suitably experienced individuals.
