Maintenance Engineering Apprentice


Job description:

As in most industrial environments, maintenance is a key feature of flour milling manufacturing.

The maintenance team will be involved in routine maintenance procedures as well as helping to troubleshoot issues should they arise with equipment in the manufacturing process.

The ultimate aim of our maintenance team is to keep an efficient and safe manufacturing process operational. Failure in this can result in a reduction in output of a finished product or compromised quality standards.

The role of a Maintenance Technician can be mechanical, electrical and/or Maintenance Technicians may be required to take a more general role.

Maintenance Technicians often work in shifts and can also be required to supply “on call” support to their facility, depending upon the specifics of the job role.
