Field Service Engineer

Field Service Engineer - 30k basic salary plus a fully expensed car and pension. Market leading European Manufacturer of high quality packaging machinery and bespoke service contracts predominantly for the Food Manufacturers and Industrial sectors. This role will cover the South Coast up to the M4 Corridor. This is a home based role.

The Company

The company is a truly global business and operates in every continent with a combination of manufacturing sites, head offices and subsidiaries strategically placed to service all its customers. The company manufactures high end machinery into core areas such as heavy industry and retail as well as the leading food and pharmaceutical producers. As well as this the company offers a technically superb support and aftersales service. There is a balanced split between these two areas of the business. With a solid brand and superb infrastructure, the company is now looking to strengthen its UK business. Due to the exciting and cutting edge launch of a pioneering piece of equipment and constant investment into the UK business, this is the ideal time for an outstanding Field Service Engineer to join the well-established UK team.

The Role

Reporting to the senior management, your role will be to assume responsibility for installing equipment and machinery as well as managing the maintenance aspect of both existing and new equipment within the SME's and a large blue chip account base, predominantly within the food manufacturers. Even though the role is focused on the South of the UK, there will also be the option/need to spend the odd week every few months overseas to work with clients within Scandinavia, other areas of Europe and the rare visit to South Africa. The expectations are that you are out on the road/with clients 4 days a week with a day based at home. Realistically, you will have a monthly meeting at Head Office but there will obviously be a lot of interaction with colleagues and your team. However, this is an autonomous role. This really is the ideal time to join the business as there is a real clarity in strategy for the short, medium and long term.

The Applicant

Based South of the M4 and between the South West and Kent, your current role will be that of Field Service Engineer, Commissioning Engineer and maybe from within an external Technical Support capacity and you will be able to demonstrate a background in this. You will have a background servicing/installing any kind of machinery or capital equipment ideally into the food manufacturers. However, a background servicing machinery into other FMCG or manufacturing markets would also be of interest. A background in Electrical and/or Mechanical Engineering would obviously add value but again, having learnt your trade via experience would also be of great interest. The company is open-minded and simply wants the best person for the job. Therefore, you will be pro-active in your approach and flexible as you may have to react quickly to client problems in what can be an unpredictable request. You will be both accountable and responsible as well as being credible and professional in representing the company in front of both SME and blue chip clients. The company very much operates as a team and you will enjoy and believe in this and your self-motivated attitude will ensure success and recognition within the team.
