A successful, family-owned food business in Oxfordshire is looking for an Engineering Manager to help spearhead the growth of the company. This is a brand-new role specifically created in response to expansion and demand for the company's product. You will need to be flexible and multi-skilled to deliver KPI's and, in return, will be rewarded with a high base salary and fantastic benefits package.

First Achieve Engineering has an exciting and rare opportunity to join one of their family-owned, highly successful clients. Due to on-going success within the commercial sector, the company has found the need to create a specific new role within the business, to assist and spearhead the on-going growth throughout its state-of-the-art facility in Oxfordshire.


Boasting multiple sites throughout the UK, the client has recently secured multiple long-term agreements with various market-leading supermarket chains.


Year upon year, the business grows stronger, bigger, and continuously invests in its employees.


The company has a proven track record of promoting within and a genuine team-feeling throughout.


Initially, this role will involve the immediate entry to an on-going project with the objective of managing and assisting the team in the commissioning of a new production line.


This will not be a task delegation role, this is very much a hands-on position, so it is essential you come from a multi-skilled engineering background, but have previous project managing experience within the installation/commissioning of FMCG machinery.


After the completion of this project, you will join the business’ Engineering Management Team, which consists of six Engineering Managers.


Each managing their own respective area within the facility, all of the Engineering Management team adopt a hands-on, teamwork approach reporting to the Head of Engineering and working on a day-shift pattern, although you will be required to be on call, as per the rota.


The successful candidate will develop and lead the medium to long-term operational plans of the site, whilst being a role model that underpins a culture of operational excellence, high performance, continuous improvement, people management and development, as well as the active engagement of all staff. 


They will focus on delivering and meeting the needs of both internal and external customers and be responsible for cascading and delivering on Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) and responsibilities, as directed by site management, and in particular the Site Manager and Engineering Manager.


We are looking to speak with Time-Served, Multi-Skilled Maintenance Engineers with experience of Managing Projects, ideally within the Food industry.


You will have previous experience managing and supervising engineers, but also be flexible and confident to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in yourself.


Given the industry our client operates within, it is essential that you have a real appreciation for urgency.


 Our client can produce thousands, upon thousands of units per hour, so minimal downtime is absolutely critical.


 You must have an open mind, be flexible in your approach and have a continuous improvement mindset throughout.


This is a fantastic opportunity to join a rapidly growing, continuously improving and highly successful business in a brand-new role, created purely on the basis of the company's growth. You will be a part of its success story and, as a result, will be rewarded with an exceptional base salary and an impressive benefits package.


Apply today and one of our engineering consultants will be in contact to discuss the role and your application in more detail.


A full, informative job description will be provided prior to the next stage of the application process.
