As part of the Quintessential Brands Group, the name behind BLOOM, Opihr and Greenall’s gins, Dubliner Whiskey and Feeney’s Irish Cream as well as an extensive portfolio of retailer and own brand spirits, G&J Distillers is the world's foremost gin producer, proudly distilling for over 250 years through the craftsmanship of seven generations of master distillers, the custodians of our secret recipe. Founded in 1761 by Thomas Dakin, the forefather of English gin and our original master distiller, we have been at the forefront of British gin for gin lovers through the centuries. We are now looking for a Maintenance Engineer who can help to ensure that our site continues to produce our award winning gins.
A Flavour for the Job
Reporting to the Packaging Maintenance Manager, our new Engineer will be responsible for maintaining and repairing all types of plant within the bottling lines and distillery, using fault finding techniques and root cause analysis to not only provide timely solutions to make sure our site remains operational but also to identify opportunities for continuous improvement to processes and standards.
As well as reactive maintenance, you will also support in the completion of Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) schedules, carrying out these schedules and planned work across various equipment including Filling, labelling, packaging and process equipment. As a technical expert you will also be key in supporting the bottling operation with machine changeovers and setting. This is a shift based role so the successful candidate must be happy to take on a shift based role.
Working safely is central to everything we do and, above all, you will be expected to maintain a high degree of both product and personal safety in accordance with HSE, EHO & HMRC requirements, ensuring adherence to all legislative requirements, helping us to instil a behavioural safety culture within our teams.
A Taste of the Business
We are a unique blend, a 9 year-old business with a 250 year heritage, a pioneering company with ambitions to grow and share our passion for spirits with generations to come. We’re not perfect, we still have processes and systems to implement and improve and as a company we operate in a lean and agile way, but we are getting there. Joining QB (as we’re known to our friends) is a unique opportunity to roll your sleeves up, get stuck in and really help to shape the business as we expand. Are you up for the challenge?
A bit about you
The successful Maintenance Engineer will have extensive manufacturing experience, ideally within the food and drink industry, with a multi-skilled background and qualifications to HNC level or equivalent. You will also have a background in electrical control, PLC and automation systems.
Aside from the engineering skills, you’ll be an excellent communicator who is enthusiastic, positive and able to explain technical solutions clearly and plainly to people who may not be from a technical background. You’ll enjoy working as part of a small team where you have the opportunity to develop your skills and coach and mentor your peers and others in the wider business.
Our Culture - The Essence of Quintessential Brands
We're an 'all hands on deck' kind of place where you'll have the opportunity to get involved in end to end projects, implement systems and process. We're fast, agile and entrepreneurial but, most importantly, our people are at the heart of what we do.
While we do work hard, we do it with a sense of fun, pride and passion that you won't find anywhere else.
Are you never shaken and very rarely stirred? More Cosmopolitan than Old Fashioned? Approach everything you do with a dash of creativity and a squeeze of positivity? Then we need you!
