Plant Fitter (Mechanical)
Barnsley - £12.50 - £15.00 per hour (Permanent)
My client is an established marker leader in the heavy plant and machinery industries, with increasing annual revenues and a growing workforce.
As a direct result of sustained growth, we are now seeking to appoint four experienced Mechanical Engineers, whose main responsibilities will involve the service, maintenance and repair of heavy plant equipment.
Product training will be provided, but as a minimum, applicants should be fully competent in all aspects of mechanical maintenance, including hydraulics and pneumatics.
Technicians will be expected to identify, fit and replace worn and damaged parts, whilst also carrying out pre-delivery inspection of both use, and new plant equipment.
Generally, you will be expected to work alone, but occasionally you may also be part of a small team of Mechanical Fitters and Electrical Engineers.
This is a workshop-based role and all specialist tools and PPE will be provided by the company. However, the successful Mechanical Fitter will be expected to supply their own basic hand tools.
Mechanical Engineers with a Heavy Plant, Agricultural or Recycling background are encouraged to apply, as are HGV Technicians, and Maintenance Engineers from industrial, factory or manufacturing sectors.
These are important roles within the business and provide an excellent opportunity to join a successful Engineering company that is able to offer on-going training and development for applicants seeking to build on previous experience.
Optrec Ltd specialise in the recruitment of skilled Engineers throughout the UK. We have been appointed by the client to provide Employment Agency services on their behalf.
