We’re looking to bring a Multi-Skilled Maintenance Engineer to join our existing client site based in Heston, Hounslow. This is one of three sites in the UK for our client, a leading supermarket, which utilises TGW’s automated solution.

You will work a flexible shift pattern covering maintenance windows and support on the standard shift. Your hours will be 40 per week and will cover both 8-hour and 12-hour shifts.

You’ll be an electrically-biased Engineer from an operational engineering background, ideally having previously worked on automated equipment (conveyors, lifts, shuttles, etc.). You will be confident in communicating with different individuals and used to working in a dynamic environment.
