This days Maintenance Engineer position offers the opportunity to join a market leading healthcare company with a brand new, purpose built manufacturing facility. The successful incumbent will be working on a 12 month contract that could go permanent and will receive additional benefits including up to 9% pension contribution from the employer and annual bonus.

Ideally this experience will be built within FMCG, Automotive, Food, Beverage, Healthcare, Packaging, Consumer Goods or anything with high speed packaging and filling machinery.
