We are currently recruiting for a Mechanical Maintenance Engineer to join one of the leading suppliers of Drinking Water and Waste Water services across the South West Region. They have a strong track record of providing efficient, reliable and high-quality drinking water across the Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset areas.

The Candidate

To be considered for this position candidates will be expected to have received formal engineering training as well as having a background in performing maintenance/service work on heavy industrial plant with demonstrable mechanical experience.

Full training will be provided to get you up to speed on the equipment you will be working with, but previous experience working with water or wastewater treatment assets would be of an advantage.

This role is predominantly workshop based but may require working away from home at various sites so a degree of flexibility will be expected. Due to the nature of the role candidates must hold a full UK driving licence.
