Service Engineer – UK & Ireland Coverage – Permanent – Home Based – PLC software skills required – £35-40k + overtime + vehicle

Samuel Frank is recruiting for an electrically biased Service Engineer for a South Yorkshire based special purpose machine manufacturer. The successful Service Engineer will travel across the UK & Ireland and be responsible for the servicing, commissioning, breakdowns and maintenance of the machines on site. This position could suit an electrically biased Service Engineer that lives anywhere within 2 hours of South Yorkshire. If you live further afield, this could also be workable.

Key aspects of the Service Engineer position include;

  • Experience with the electrical aspects of special purpose machinery servicing, commissioning, repair and maintenance
  • Controls knowledge including fault finding and bug fixing & testing on PLCs (the client is not looking for a programmer but someone who can interrogate code and make changes/modifications where necessary)
  • Any knowledge of packaging machinery will be ideal
  • Customer facing – first class communication skills
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Resilience – you’ll often be the sole representative on site
  • Used to travelling – the role will include overnight stays during the week. A large job might take 1-2 weeks which could span a weekend but the client estimates this might only happen once a year

The company is open to bringing someone in who is apprentice trained or recently qualified and is at the beginning stages of their career, right up to a seasoned/experienced Service Engineer with 10+ years experience.

They’re also big on training so provide training to fill gaps in skillsets and to help the successful Service Engineer develop.

If you’d like to apply, please send your CV for an immediate response.
