The Company

Our client specialises in the manufacturing of products for the construction market. With over 19 manufacturing sites across the UK, they can produce anything from bricks and blocks, tiles and chimneys, to precast concrete floors and beams, as well as bespoke one off products.

Their Kirton site is a brick site which is producing over 100000 bricks per day in their fully automated production facility. Equipment includes mixing and batching plant, transfer cars, steam boilers, autoclaves, block presses and fully automated robotic palletisers.

The Role

The Electrical Maintenance Engineer will be responsible for three key areas; Reactive Maintenance, Planned Preventative Maintenance and Installation Project work. Breakdowns take priority to ensure the plant is kept running, with the rest of the week focused on PPMs and Project work.

The duties of the Electrical Maintenance Engineer will be 95% electrical in nature against 5% mechanical as the site has separate Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. Electrical tasks include fault finding using a multimeter against electrical drawings, fault finding using a multimeter on PLCs (Siemens S5 & S7), fault finding, rectification and installation of panels, repairing AC and DC motors (Brake, Star Delta and Soft Start), changing sensors, inverters, relays and contactors.

As much as the plant is automated and PLC fault finding is done with a laptop, they do need someone with a clear understanding of modifications and someone who can confidentially interrigate.

The Candidate

To be successful in your application you must have the following skills, abilities or qualifications:

  • Must have a recognised Electrical Qualification. 
  • Must have a ONC/HND/HNC
  • Must have experience performing electrical maintenance in an automated environment.
  • Must have experience working within an industrial environment 
  • Must be happy to work within an industrial environment
