Site Engineering Manager

A brand new automated warehouse, manage and develop a small maintenance team, make a real impact from day one.

Main Responsibilities

You’re someone who wants to make an impact from day one, likes to focus on team development and training, and has excellent stakeholder management experience.


However, you’re not interested in managing a huge team of 20+ on-site and prefer to keep your finger on the pulse and have time to develop each team member individually.


You also love working on the latest technology and equipment, and you’ve found yourself being an advocate for utilising new tools and systems to improve the running of your sites.


If the above resonates with you, then we’d love to hear from you.


We’re seeking a Site Engineering Manager to manage a team of 5 TGW Engineers on a new (go-live was in 2018) automated materials handling site for our client, a global publishing organisation.


12 months in and the site has had a lot of the initial teething issues sorted, however, there is still a lot to be done. Examples of your key deliverables will include:


  • Getting the site up to 100% distribution levels and absorb the rest of the levels from an older site – at present, the levels are just over 50%.
  • Continue to develop and train the team – we’ve recently added two Junior/Assistant Engineers to the team in the past 6 months, so you’ll play a key part in their development and training.
  • Develop the relationship with the client, managing expectations and ensuring KPI’s are being met, such as equipment availability and efficiency levels.


And the cherry on top of this delicious sundae of an opportunity? It’s a Monday-Friday shift pattern, so you’ll have a better work/life balance too.

About You

You’ll be an experienced Team Leader or Site Manager who has led teams of a similar size and you’ll be from an engineering background yourself, ideally holding an ONC/HNC or full BTEC in an engineering discipline.


In addition, you will have experience working with automated materials handling equipment (conveyors, shuttles, cranes, robotics, etc.) and be experienced with using and/or implementing relevant software tools, such as SCADA, CMMS and Warehouse Controls Systems.


So if you’re currently in a Team Leader role overseeing a small team and haven’t had the opportunity to make the step up to site management, or you’re a Site Manager looking for a new challenge, then hit ’apply now‘ and let’s start the conversation…

We offer

You'll receive a basic salary of £50,000-£55,000p.a. plus a car allowance. In addition, you'll receive a comprehensive benefits package which includes 25 days annual holiday entitlement with the option to buy a further 5 days of flexible holiday, a contributory pension scheme, access to our free on-site gym and wellness programme, cycle to work scheme, access to discounts via our affinity scheme and many more!
