A fantastic opportunity to join an expanding global manufacturing business with over 75 years of history, supporting a broad range of industry sectors across Oil & Gas, Marine, Power Generation, Water & Sewage and Mining. Due to ongoing company expansion including plans for the build of a brand new local manufacturing site with a state of the art paint plant has let the requirement to employ a new Senior Manufacturing Engineer. The remit of this role will be to support and help deliver a multi million pound wet paint plant, including its specification, installation and commissioning followed by then its ongoing support on CI and other automated processes being rolled out in the new factory.

Our clients current factory has over 500 staff based in Bath and produces a best in class, technology driven, product range through a lean, CI driven manufacturing/heavy assembly based process with a small paint plant. This role suits someone with a background in developing new processes within manufacturing/assembly driven environments, with paint plant experience, such as automotive, general manufacturing or aerospace sectors.

This role will have a huge impact on the delivery and success of the brand new factory, so you’ll get full process lifecycle management, from starting on initial specifications, to working with suppliers, supporting on the installation and then final commissioning, so experience in project engineering/management is a must.

You’ll report directly into the Production Manager and around 7-9 will be in your team, so you’ll be well supported.

  • Background wise you’ll have solid knowledge on paint plants, preferably in delivering upgrade or new build projects on them and will be keen to expand your knowledge and work for a global business where you can have an impact and make a difference on an exciting project
  • You’ll hopefully have some project management/engineering experience
  • Delivery of process improvement and controlling the delivery of capital projects throughout their life-cycle (specification, installation, commissioning)
  • Be used to operating within a CI led, Lean manufacturing environment or from a similar transferable background
