Why work as part of the Burton’s Biscuit Family as our Reliability Engineer?

You will be responsible for using the principles of performance evaluation and prediction to facilitate the improvement of safety, reliability, maintainability and operability of physical assets. You will support the development and assessment of condition monitoring and will both lead and support reliability improvement projects.


This will be a key role to ensure all bakery equipment remains in optimum condition and allows the bakery to continue to hit and achieve its targets. This a role where you can make real strategic recommendations which can lead to capex investment in order to solve commercial reliability concerns. 



What are the key ingredients needed for the role?

This a fantastic role for either a time served Electrical / Mechanical engineer or a suitably qualified Vibration Analysis technician (BINDT) who likes to get hands on, problem solve and drive long term Reliability solutions. They will be plenty to get stuck into so you will need to be self-motivated with a can-do attitude & a genuine willingness to learn and develop.


While it is not essential you have worked in a pure reliability role, it is essential that you can clearly demonstrate on you CV that you have completed certain reliability aspects to your previous roles especially around condition monitoring or predictive maintenance techniques.


It is highly desirable you have come from a fast-paced manufacturing environment, but other sectors will be considered. 


As this is a cross functional role, the ability to build key relationships quickly across various teams is essential, excellent communication skills are a must, as you will be working within a large and busy fast paced bakery.



If you are looking for a new challenge in a fun, fast paced and progressive business then we have the opportunity for you!!
