We are winning new contracts all over the UK (and off-shore around the world) and our Service Division delivers leading installation, testing and maintenance of vertical access solutions, literally anywhere around the globe, be it Onshore or Offshore.

To keep pace with increased demand we’re looking for an experienced Multi-skilled Service Engineer who has a mix of mechanical and electrical expertise. You will be given full training to become one of our skilled Service Engineers so to begin with you’ll will be working on a variety of UK onshore customer sites across construction, ports, shipyards and power sectors.
As your skills develop you’ll progress onto our Offshore Oil & Gas customers and ultimately you could be deployed to our customers, anywhere in the World.

As an experienced Multi-skilled Service Engineer you’ll already be able to follow wiring diagrams, as well as fault find using PLC control panels.

You will be repairing and servicing:
· Rack and pinion drive systems and gearboxes.
· Centrifugal brake systems and safety device firing controls.
· 415 and 240 volt power and control cables.

As you could be working anywhere in the UK you should expect regular nights away (usually 2/3 per week as a minimum) but these can be in a longer term block, particularly when you progress to the off-shore or overseas level.

To be considered you MUST be an experienced Industrial Multi-skilled, Mechanical or Electrical Service Engineer with hands-on experience of working in a heavy engineering environment.

· You MUST have knowledge of 3 phase / 240v Motors, Gearboxes and Roller systems.
· You MUST to be physically fit and prepared to work at heights, in all weathers and in an environment which can be oily and dirty.

Exposure to PLC’s would be ideal as would any experience of working on cranes or traction lifts but previous experience from an Industrial Engineering environment such as heavy plant equipment is fine.

We welcome applications from either qualified Industrial Mechanical or Electrical/Electronic Engineers and ex-Forces (Military, Army, Navy, RAF) personnel are of significant interest but above all we are looking for individuals with a positive ‘can-do’ attitude, who will go the extra mile for our customers and who see problems as interesting challenges to overcome.
