Our client is a specialist food packaging manufacturer based in the South East. They offer their clients a full service from design through to delivery, providing them with a range of non-leak, fast food, take away and bakery packaging products.

Our client has over 65,000 sq. ft of modern production and warehouse space and is looking to add to their production team.

The role is very hands on and will require a mechanically minded individual with a particular attention to detail to deliver against production targets. You will handle any mechanical faults as they arise, addressing them quickly, ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum. 

Your role will involve working as part of the operations team on the production line. However, you will also be required to spring into action to complete reactive, or planned maintenance, including fault finding, assisting with smooth changeovers, and also working on process and system improvement projects across the lines.  

The machines are relatively unusual in the industry (Heiber and Schroeder) and the business will not expect you to have worked on them before, therefore previous experience operating Jagenberg, Omega, Signature, Kohmann, Digistar, Heiber or Schroeder machines is needed and training will be provided to help you adapt quickly to the machinery you will be operating.
