This processing company is looking for help with a project aimed at improving their planned maintenance programme for processing equipment, and developing a plan for replacement of obsolete equipment. This will give you significant experience of working in a fast-paced manufacturing environment, and will look great on your CV.

The placement will last at least 6 months with the potential for a 3 month extension (it may even become permanent- for this reason a graduate is preferred, though undergraduates may be considered).

Some of the key areas include:

  • Reviewing and updating equipment asset status on the maintenance management system;
  • Identifying critical equipment, key asset parts; and identifying potential areas of risk related to equipment availability and reliability;
  • Identifying potentially obsolete equipment and associated parts, and defining a plan to replace or upgrade this in conjunction with key suppliers;
  • Reviewing the existing planned maintenance schedule and identifying areas for improvement in terms of frequencies and standard work;
  • Translating user manuals into training manuals.

If not all of the specifics are familiar don't worry, you will be given guidance on what needs to be done- however, it is important that you have some knowledge of manufacturing machinery / processing equipment as you will be assessing them and making recommendations- this must include hands on experience with heavy machinery outside your coursework. Your degree should be related to Mechanical, Production, or Process Engineering, but your experience should not be all theoretical.

Its a dynamic environment, with a mixture of milling/ processing/ chemical/ quarry- almost heavy machinery.

The offices are in a small town in between Northwich and Crewe, potentially also commutable from Macclesfield and Chester. 

If you are interested please apply asap-the closing dates on our advertising are for guidance only and we always encourage early applications where possible.
