This is a day position, working 40 hours per week, typically 6.00am to 2.00pm Monday to Friday, however, there is an element of flexibility required for this role and as such these may change from time to time to suit factory needs. In addition, you will also be required to be on call one week in three.

First Choice are recruiting on behalf of our client, one of Europe’s most prominent manufacturers of premium glass containers, providing exceptional quality glass packaging for some of the world’s most prestigious spirit brands for over one hundred years.

To support growth and increasing production demands, we are currently seeking to recruit a highly motivated and pro-active individual to join the Engineering Department as an On-Call Electrical Engineer located in Knottingley, West Yorkshire.

Reporting to the Engineering Team Leader and working within a small team, the role is responsible for the provision of an ‘on-call’ service to rectify and eliminate equipment faults and failures and minimise machine downtime, via a committed rota (one week in three), covering 365 days per year. This on-call provision will commence after familiarisation of the site and machinery.

The ability to work well under pressure, in a hostile working environment and prioritise workloads is also essential to this role, together with excellent problem solving skills.

Successful candidates can benefit from the following:-

  • Opportunity to develop new skills and develop a career in a successful multi-million-pound organisation

  • Fantastic career progression opportunities for the right individuals

  • Additional payments for each call out attended
