  • Co-ordinate and supervise the planned preventative maintenance programme for the specialist plant and equipment, ensuring the correct maintenance routines are set up and adhered to both throughout the year and at shutdowns
  • Investigate and respond to faults and unscheduled tasks as they occur on a priority basis and propose solutions as to how the fault can be fixed so that operations continue to function safely
  • Provide out of hours cover on a rota basis

The successful candidate should have:
