Spalding – Salary £37k – £40k depending on experience

Are you a driven, diligent Engineering Team Leader? If so, we have a great opportunity to join a leading UK business offering great career opportunities.

As a market leader in their field, our client is keen to stay ahead of the curve within the manufacturing environment they operate in.

Reporting to the Engineering Manager you will ensure that both production and energy reduction targets are met using the appropriate technical support in the identification, correction, prevention and elimination of technical problems.

You would be expected to successfully lead large capital projects whilst managing a small team of engineers and contractors visiting site.

A formal engineering apprenticeship and relevant academic qualifications to suit your experience is essential for this role.

The successful candidate will be an all-round engineering professional with experience within a similar environment and with the ambition to forge a career within a market leading global company.

  • Through continuous improvement, drive the move from a ‘repair culture’ to an ‘improvement culture’, enhancing equipment performance and reliability by developing technical skills and knowledge
