Maintenance Shift Leader

Location: Halifax

Salary: £32,130 + Shift Allowance

Contract: Permanent

Company: Gower

Hours Per Week: 40

We have a fantastic opportunity to join our Supply Chain Operations as a Maintenance Shift Leader based in Halifax.
What you’ll be doing

As a Maintenance Shift Leader you will lead and manage a team of Engineers whilst promoting a positive culture and working environment.  You’ll ensure area targets in HSE, Maintenance, Projects, 5S, OEE and budget control are achieved.  You will organise planned and reactive maintenance along with analysing major breakdowns by carrying out root cause analysis and putting solutions into place to prevent machinery/process issues reoccurring.

What can you offer us?

You’ll have a hands-on approach when it comes to machine maintenance. We have a mixture of skills within the team, as well as strong working relationships with the other Maintenance departments throughout the Group. Candidates who apply require to be NVQ L3 (minimum) qualified in a relevant engineering discipline and be time-served in a manufacturing environment. Previous experience managing a team is not essential as development opportunities are available at the Nobia UK Training Academy. What is vital is an attitude that will add strength to the dynamic of the Maintenance team. 
We operate a weekly rolling shift pattern, 6am-2pm (early), 2pm-10pm (late) and 9pm-7am (night), with weekends available at the requirement of the Company, so flexibility is necessary.

What you’ll get in return

We give you room to grow, learn and evolve new skills to expand on current knowledge and to support career progression. We offer an excellent basic salary + shift allowance, 25 days annual leave + bank holidays, a generous discount on Kitchens from ourselves or our sister company Magnet Kitchens.
