The Role:
The post of Mechanical Reliability and Maintenance Engineer is a key role within the mechanical engineering and reliability team at our client's production facility, working within stringent KPI and performance indicators.

Your primary responsibility will be to identify and manage mechanical asset reliability risks that could adversely affect the processing facility and business performance. This will include loss elimination, risk management and life cycle asset management (LCAM). You will play a key role in tracking production losses and abnormally high maintenance cost assets, finding solutions to reduce losses or high costs. Working in full partnership with the processing/production operations team you will develop a plan to eliminate and reduce losses through root cause analysis.
