Operating from 20 sites across the UK & Ireland, Stericycle is a global business and widely recognised as the UK’s leading healthcare waste specialist. Built on unrivalled levels of knowledge and expertise, we’re the clear leader in the delivery of safe, compliant and sustainable solutions to an ever-increasing customer base.

Mechanical Maintenance Technician/Engineer

With a brief to ensure plant availability is optimised, you’ll provide first-line planned maintenance and troubleshoot repairs for site machinery whilst contributing to the forward planning of engineering works.

Specifically, this will involve:

Being fully conversant with all maintenance/engineering aspects of the plant

Working closely with shift supervisors and managers to co-ordinate the inspection of plant/equipment and carrying out repairs/testing as required which does not conflict with plant operations/scheduled work

Working in conjunction with engineering colleagues and other departments to co-ordinate and maintain site documentation, as well as review and contribute to the development of the maintenance programme

Some out of hours work duties will be required as part of your contract.

As Mechanical Maintenance Technician/Engineer, you will:

Have experience in all aspects of mechanical equipment and processes, including welding, pneumatics and hydraulics, plus relevant formal engineering qualifications

Be able to work to tight deadlines and prioritise work according to plant requirements

Have the ability to diagnose problems and deliver on-time solutions

Be willing to deputise for the Shift Supervisor when required, therefore supervisory skills would be preferred

Any industrial plant experience and electrical qualifications would be a distinct advantage.

In return, we can promise you a first-class opportunity in a quality driven business, where the rewards will fully reflect your endeavour, in the form of a competitive salary and an excellent range of benefits.
