Our client, an organisation working within the fast-growing renewable energy sector, currently require a Plant Technician / Operations Technician / Maintenance Technician to join their team. You will be responsible for the operations & maintenance of the process plant & machinery, as well as operating the mobile plant on site such as a loading shovel.

As a Plant Technician, you'll be tasked with:

  • Controlling and monitoring operations of the renewable energy process plant using the plant control systems, so experience of PLC / SCADA / DCS systems would be advantageous.
  • Carrying out inspections & checks, as well as planned & reactive maintenance on the process plant such as pumps, gearboxes, motors etc.
  • Operating the mobile plant on site which will include loading shovels.
  • Ensuring adherence with health & safety requirements at all times.
  • Other duties as required.

In order to be considered for this role, you will need to have proven experience in a similar Plant Technician / Mechanical Maintenance position, ideally in a power generation / renewable energy / process plant environment. A relevant electrical or mechanical engineering qualification (apprenticeship / NVQ / City & Guilds etc.) would also be advantageous, as would mobile plant operations experience & tickets.

They're offering a competitive salary of up to £35,000 depending on experience. You will need to be flexible and able to work as part of a 24/7 shift pattern (days & nights), with the occasional overtime requirement.
