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.
