Our client, a leading provider of healthcare waste management services, is looking to recruit a Shredding Maintenance Technician for the North West region. You will be the principle maintenance contact in your region and ensure the company’s trucks and equipment (conveyors, shredders and balers etc) are well maintained and ready for service every day. The role is heavily focused around proactive and reactive maintenance. A flexible approach is necessary as you will need to cover both afternoon and morning shifts where applicable and will also be expected to offer some out of hours support by either attending site or supporting remotely via phone. The role will also involve regular travel within the UK, so a willingness to stay out overnight on occasion will be required. Applications are invited from candidates with a formal engineering qualification (City & Guilds or equivalent) and possession of (or willingness to work towards) a health & safety qualification (IOSH/NEBOSH). You will also have previous heavy industrial plant experience and be able to use your technical expertise to solve and identify faults (electrical/hydraulic/pneumatic). Electrical experience and 16th/17th edition is desirable as is a forklift licence and welding and fabrication experience. A full UK driving licence is essential. Ref: J8238
