We've built a reputation in the Service Engineer market as the go-to recruiter for specialist, multi-skilled Service Engineers. Our Service Engineers have been involved in the installation and commissioning of gigantic furnaces used to manufacture parts for Formula 1 teams, specialist emission reduction systems to make sure the latest smart factory isn't emitting harmful gasses into the atmosphere, to servicing and upgrading the latest food processing equipment used by some of the world’s biggest brands.

Skills needed

  • Service Engineers need to be ready for the unexpected! We represent FieldService Engineers who are flexible, approachable, customer focussed, organised as well as being knowledgeable on a wide range of technical topics and equipment. 
  • So Service Engineers can attend sites alone, saving on costs, they’re often skilled in both electrical and mechanical disciplines sometimes combining PLC interrogation and fault finding knowledge. 
  • Typical Service Engineers we represent are the eyes and the ears on customers’ sites, so they’re always on the lookout for potential new solutions. Maybe there is a machine that another company hasn’t been back to service or there is a more up to date component that’ll improve the output of the machine. A good Service Engineer spots these situations and creates a win-win situation for both parties by creating revenue for their team and providing a solution to the customer.
