MECHANICAL ENGINEER - PLANT IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS

"Excellent career development opportunity for experienced Mechanical Engineer to take the lead on plant and maintenance improvement projects."

£Very Competitive Bonus Excellent Benefits Relocation Assistance

Location: East Lothian, Scotland

Commutable from Edinburgh, Berwick upon Tweed, Dunbar, North Berwick, Haddington, East Linton, Musselburgh, South Queensferry, Livingston, Dalkeith, Bonnyrigg, Bathgate, Relocation assistance may be available.

Working within a plant maintenance team, you'll already know that there's a constant dilemma between maintaining the plant and improving it.

As a Mechanical Engineer, you'll probably identify opportunities for plant improvement all the time, but you never have the chance to carry any of those projects out.

It can be frustrating, mainly when you know those improvement projects could make a massive difference in the production plant's process efficiency, yield, or downtime.

If that's the case, you could be the person our client needs for their company. They're a highly respected household name with operations spanning the globe, and they need a graduate-level mechanical engineer to help them improve their plant operations.

The role reports to the Maintenance Manager but sits aside from the day-to-day maintenance activities to allow you to focus on these medium to long-term improvement projects entirely.

Using your mechanical engineering knowledge and experience of 365/24/7 heavy processing machinery, you'll research known issues and create plans for resolving them with robust, long-term solutions. Our client isn't interested in "sticking plaster" fixes, as they are focused on increasing uptime and plant reliability for the future and the present.

There'll be plenty of opportunities to use your project management skills as you'll oversee the implementation of your improvement projects, liaising with all the other relevant departments and managing sub-contractors as required.

As our client's plant runs continuously, you'll need some flexibility to work shifts, but, in return, our client will invest in you by fully supporting your career development and progress through their business. They also offer relocation assistance if you live outside of their commutable area.

Given the nature of this role, our client expects you will have a degree in a mechanical engineering related discipline and will have worked in a continuous heavy industry such as chemicals, glass, steel, or construction materials.
