comprehensive, multi-skilled support to our Production department. Following planned schedules
and troubleshooting reactive repairs, your work will include installation, commissioning,
maintenance and modification of electrical and mechanical equipment across the pharmaceutical
production cycle. With a focus on Continuous Improvement, you’ll also develop and implement cost-
effective solutions to improve equipment efficiency, reliability and performance to minimise
downtime. To support your work, you’ll liaise with contractors, engineering specialists,
manufacturers and parts suppliers to ensure an efficient response and high quality solutions.
Valuing safety and quality, maintaining high levels of compliance is central to all you do. With a
strong understanding of relevant good manufacturing practice (GMP) requirements, you observe all
required regulations and guidelines, including EHS, OPEX and process/validation compliance
standards through strict adherence to any risk assessment, PUWER, LTV and manual handling
requirements. Taking pride in your work, you provide an excellent level of customer service at all
times, support and mentor your colleagues (including performing effective shift handovers) and
work collaboratively with other departments (e.g. Production, Quality), as required.
- Significant experience in a similar multi-skilled engineering support role, ideally in a highly
regulated ‘clean room’ environment.
- Experience of mechanical and electrical maintenance and fault finding (with knowledge of
relevant regulations), plus experience of computerised maintenance management systems.
- Recognised engineering apprenticeship completed, with a HNC level engineering qualification.
- Natural problem-solver – takes a creative yet disciplined approach to work, able to adapt to
changing priorities and always keen to learn.
- Excellent communication and customer service skills (in written and spoken English), able to
relate to colleagues at all levels and navigate cultural differences with ease.
- Works well on own initiative through a strong attention to detail and time management skills,
but equally at home in a team, working together to deliver objectives or see projects through.
- Good numeracy skills with a commercial mindset, and equally good IT skills – comfortable
working with databases, work-based systems and using the Microsoft Office suite.
In return, we offer a competitive salary and rewards package (including holiday, bonus and pension
scheme). Not to mention the opportunity to genuinely make a difference within a progressive and
expanding business, at an exciting time of growing international reach.
