We know about food!



Tulip Ltd is the UK's leading food solutions business, supplying all major food retailers, wholesalers and foodservice companies with a wide range of quality products. We provide consumers with a comprehensive range of products in four key mega-categories - fresh meat & sausage, bacon & gammon, cooked meat, and convenience & snacking. Our farm-to-fork operation is unique in the industry, while our strategic framework puts customers, product, efficiency and people at the heart of everything we do, all with a view to growing responsibly. As part of the Danish Crown Group, the largest pork provider in Europe and the biggest exporter of pork in the world, Tulip Ltd is well-placed to deliver its ambitious plans for sustainable growth. If you have an appetite for more, this could be the role for you.



The Role

We currently have an opportunity available for Multi Skilled Engineers to work as part of the engineering team, working on a rotating 4On/4Off shift pattern working both days and nights. You will undertake a wide range of tasks including planned preventative maintenance and providing efficient response to breakdowns in order to maintain optimum efficiency. You will also be expected to actively seek improvement opportunities and implement those where possible to further develop the efficient and productivity of the business.



The Ideal Candidate

The successful candidate must hold an electrical qualification of NVQ Level 3 or equivalent as a minimum and be 17th edition certified. You must be an excellent fault finder and have strong mechanical skills with a good working knowledge of pneumatics, hydraulics and PLC's. You will be expected to accurately record all maintenance work using our computerised maintenance system so strong computer skills are a must.



The role is crucial to the efficient running of the site and therefore you will be required to demonstrate excellent communication skills when liaising with internal departments and external contractors and have a flexible and proactive approach to ensure the overall need of the business are met. Ideally you will have direct experience of working with food processing and packaging equipment, however familiarisation training on this specialist equipment can be provided for the right candidate.

As an international organisation, we pride ourselves on creating high quality food and exceed many recognized industry standards. We care about people and offer an excellent package. If you are as serious about food as we are and ready to help us make a difference, we would like to hear from you.
