We are currently working with one of the fastest growing businesses within the Process and Food Sector, who are currently expanding across the board as part of their long-term growth strategy. The business has already doubled their head count over the last 3 years, with the plan to add an additional six heads by the end of 2023 across various departments.

The role has a three-month training programme, that allows for complete exposure to the design and manufacturing process, so no work experience is necessary, however any experience outside of your degree is going to be of benefit to your application.

This would require occasional travel visiting customers sites.

  • Any relevant Mechanical Engineering degree
  • Ability to use CAD and read technical drawings/P&IDs
  • Knowledge of Project Management, either a module or qualification (e.g.PRINCE2) is required
  • Full UK Drivers License

As this is a trainee position, do not worry if you are not an expert as full guided training, including weekly team peer reviews, will guide you through.
