MECHANICAL ENGINEER - PLANT IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS

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

£35-55000 (Dependent On Experience) 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.

PROCESS OPTIMISATION ENGINEER -CEMENT

"Fantastic career development opportunity for degree educated Chemical Engineer"

£40-55000 (Dependent on Experience) 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.

What do you know about cement?

If your answer is along the lines of "I once mixed some with my dad to fix the garage floor", then you're probably not the person we're looking for in this role. Sorry. Life isn't always fair.

However, if your answer includes words like Alite, Belite, Tricalcium aluminate, and Brownmillerite (without Googling "what is cement?"), then we're talking the same language.

As an experienced chemical process engineer, you'll know your way around a cement plant. You'll understand the various processes involved in producing cement in a 365/24/7 operation.

Our client knows as much about cement as anyone. They should do, as they've been producing it for many, many years.

But they do need someone to work with them to improve their processes at this particular plant. And those continuous improvement processes will be a core focus of your role.

Like all heavy engineering plants, they use significant amounts of power and are keen to continually develop company-wide power reduction projects to drive down their power consumption. Alongside that, they want to optimise their fuel consumption and increase the use of Waste Derived Fuels and Alternative Raw Materials to reduce their fuel spend even further.

So, those are examples of the large-scale and long-term projects you'll be working on alongside your day-to-day analysis of the process data to optimise machine performance and utilisation.

Due to the nature of this role, our client expects you to have a degree in chemical engineering and either hold or be willing to work towards an IOSH qualification and Chartership, which they will fully support.

They are also happy to provide relocation assistance to move you to their local area if you live further away.

There's much more detail to discuss so please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference LX 855060.

As the Project Manager, you'll follow the projects from inception to completion, working on the initial specification of the project's requirements then coordinating all the subsequent activities.

Our client is a well-known, global manufacturer and has significant resources and expertise from their central capital projects team to bring into your projects as required. While you may be involved in some process plant projects, your focus will be on the site infrastructure. As such, your background should include managing complex civil and construction projects.

The site is a 365/24/7 heavy process engineering operation, so managing the project works around the continuous production cycle will challenge your project management and communication skills. An appreciation of a wide variety of engineering disciplines i.e. electrical, mechanical, chemical, process control and optimisation will be critical to success and credibility in this role.

Our client envisages you having a degree in engineering (civil, mechanical, electrical), ideally hold a project management qualification, and be fully conversant with the CDM regulations (again, a CDM qualification is preferred).

You'll hold complete budgetary control of the projects and need to demonstrate managing project budgets of £10m in your previous employment.

You will demonstrate a consistent track record of Capital Projects programme management including contractor selection and appointment, gained within a heavy industrial, multi-site, matrix organisational environment.

Demonstrable track record of project leadership via internal project and site engineering teams and external contractors/sub-contractors within a high safety critical, culture.

In-depth understanding of planned preventative maintenance, continuous improvement and energy consumption.

Excellent financial management experience including capital investment budget proposals and approval process in line with strategic capital forecasts.

Excellent people management experience familiar with managing direct and indirect team; good persuasion and influencing capabilities, with the ability to challenge, question and collaboratively develop logical solutions.

Current or recent Capital Projects Engineering Management experience gained within a very high safety culture, multi-site, heavy industrial processing sector such as steel, chemicals, cement, construction materials, energy/power or similar environment.

In return, our client is offering a generous salary and can provide relocation assistance for the perfect candidate.
