Our Salads Sutton Bridge site specializes in salads and pasta products.

We therefore ensure you have all the relevant clothing and personal protective equipment to carry out your job safely. We employ around 550 people and each year it produces millions of bags of leafy salads, food to go salads and prepared vegetables for a dedicated customer.


What will you do?


As one of our Reliability and Maintenance Engineers, you will work as part of a team of 3 Engineers and report into the Maintenance Manager; where you will work on Pre-Planned Maintenance projects as well as any ad-hoc repairs our complex production machinery requires. You will also have the potential opportunity to work on project work alongside external contractors as site machinery is replaced and updated.

In this busy and exciting role, you will utilise both mechanical and electrical engineering expertise to maintain and enhance the performance of equipment. Another key aspect of this role will be to assist with the development of production staff, enabling them to deliver their first line maintenance objectives - identifying and developing improvement opportunities as you go.

As part of the role we provide the following training:

  • OEM training such as Ilapak, Multipond, OAL (autocoding), Proseal
  • Boiler house
  • Steam utilisation
  • Electrical safe isolation
  • Confined space entry
  • Legionella awareness
  • Electricity at work regulations


About you


Ideally, you will have a real flair for maintenance and be proactive with ideas for improving the department - whilst demonstrating an aptitude and passion for engineering.


You will have already completed an engineering apprenticeship or training program alongside previous maintenance experience gained preferably within a manufacturing or FMCG environment.

Competent electrical / mechanical fault finding, and analysis skills will be key - as will the ability to work effectively both independently and as part of a team.


To be successful in this role you will need to be flexible and open to change as well as being able to use your own initiative.
