ASC Connections are Recruiting!

ASC Connections, specialists in recruitment, are currently seeking a Maintenance Team Leader to join our clients busy and fast growing maintenance team in Ipswich, Suffolk.

My client is experiencing an excellent period of growth, with further investment into machinery and production planned for 2018, this is an excellent time to join them as they take their next steps.

The Role:

I am now looking for a Multi-Skilled Maintenance Engineer to cover the permanent late shift, and be the "go-to" engineer on shift in the absence of the Maintenance Supervisor (earlier shift, with cross over). You will guide other Engineers when problems arise, and assist where required to get the job completed, and keep production running.

The Skill-Set:

The ideal candidate for this role will have an electrical bias, which will compliment the mechanical bias currently in place on this shift. Candidates that would suit this role, will be multi-skilled, with an electrical bias and possibly have a fair understanding of PLC's and fault finding.

The Team:

At present the team consists of 5 engineers, 4 of which work double day, one works permanent early (Team Leader). This role ensures suitable cover across both shifts, with a team leader in place for both.

* To assist the Maintenance Supervisor/Manager with the daily plan

* Prioritise planned and reactive work-load, completing required paperwork throughout

* Lead the late shift team in-line with agreed KPI's/Duties discussed with management

* Start Up of lines where required

On the Tools:

This is a hands on role, where you will still be required to complete maintenance tasks, both planned and un-planned. This is an excellent opportunity for a Multi-Skilled Engineer to take that next step on the leadership ladder with the full backing of the supervisor/management.
