2Agriculture are offering an exciting opportunity for a multiskilled Engineer to join the Engineering team based at Bawsey Mill. It is a fantastic time to join 2Agriculture and play a key role in realising our ambitious growth plans.
2Agriculture is an independent milling business which has been supplying feed to the poultry industry for the past 50 years.
Every day here at 2Agriculture we work with talented, dedicated colleagues to produce sustainable, premium quality feed enabling our farming partners achieve the highest standards of poultry and positively impact on our health, communities and the environment.
Service is at the heart of the team at 2Agriculture where over 250 employees work across five sites. Our feed mills operate to the highest standards set for product quality, with a specialist production team monitoring output ensuring zero or minimal mill downtime. Our fleet of over 40 Lorries operate 24/7 ensuring feed arrives on time and in full, with a real focus on biosecurity prior to delivery, on site and during departure.
The role of the Engineer is to carry out all aspects of plant maintenance and repair to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the mills production and intake systems, in order to minimise downtime and deliver business objectives.
As an engineer you should be able to proactively carry out all aspects of plant maintenance to a planned schedule, seeking solutions where abnormalities occur. This requires consistently liaising with the mill team addressing breakdowns or interruptions to production and dealing promptly with any issues, escalating where necessary. An essential aspect of the role is the initiative to drive continuous improvement, reviewing current methodology and opportunities to improve the mills efficiency, safety, quality and performance.
As part of your daily duties you must ensure all relevant maintenance records are accurately recorded to ensure legal compliance and to ensure a safe working environment.
To be successful in this role, the desired candidate should ideally have a qualification/apprenticeship in both mechanical and electrical fields and be at minimum 17th Edition certified. As an experienced engineer, ideally within the food and drink sector, you will have an excellent understanding of working with strict safety and quality control procedures and KPI’s. A good knowledge of Star Delta and PLC would be of benefit. In addition to this you should have an understanding of Safe Isolation process.
You should also be able to demonstrate good experience of implementing both short term and long-term solutions and projects in an engineering function covering both electrical and mechanical equipment.
