A fantastic opportunity to join the UK’s leading manufacturers of building and construction products based in Suffolk on their expanding plant. Our client has been in business for nearly 100 years and is one of larger market share holders within their multi million pound market sector. The company are now looking to appoint a new Maintenance Team Leader who will sit beneath the Engineering Manager and coach, mentor and assist a team of 3 engineers on shift.

The role will see you form part of the team that will help drive CI and TPM throughout the engineering side of the business, so you’ll have great opportunity to lead and take part in projects that will enable the continual improvement of machine performance and reliability.

This role will need hands on approach, working on the machines and leading the team by example, so you’ll still be someone who is prepared to keep their hand in on the tools.

If you’re someone with excellent fault finding and root cause analysis skills relating to breakdowns, and have or seek to project manage the actions to address recurrence on site then this might be a good role for you.
