Field Service Engineer (HGV / Tractors)
My client is a leading company in their field. They manufacture and maintain a range of tractors, forklifts and cargo handling vehicles to air and sea ports, terminals, and some of the larger distribution centres and heavy industry companies throughout the UK. They are working exclusively with me to recruit a Field Based Engineer competent in both mechanical and electrical maintenance of heavy vfehicles. The clients you will visit are based within throughout Essex and will also include some clients within London and Kent, so flexibility is needed as you may on occasion need to travel further afield to provide cover.
As a Field Service Engineer working for the company, your role will be to support clients throughout your territory by delivering planned preventive maintenance and breakdown repair to a range of terminal tractors and container lifting vehicles. You will also have the opportunity to train on forklifts and cargo handling machinery over time and become a fully fledged Field Service Engineer for the business, should you wish to.
Based from home you will receive a work schedule each week and will travel across your territory, working on full service project life cycles and offering clients the highest level of service. The majority of your work (apx 85%) will allow you to return home each day, however their will also be occasions when you may see more than one client in one area so could be away overnight once or twice a month at the most.
Key Duties and Responsibilities
In return our client offers and attractive package of £28,000 - £30,000 dependent on experience, plus competitive overtime rates and a company van (that you can also use personally). Other benefits include uniform, internet mobile, laptop, company pension, life insurance 25 days holiday (increases with time served) + all bank holidays off and real opportunities to progress your career should you wish. This is a days based role, and the company operates an on call rota of 1 in 4 weekends. The company has an excellent training and support matrix for new engineers joining the business
