Job Description

Forklift Truck Engineer
Field Service
Forklift trucks and materials handling equipment
£35,000pa + vehicle + overtime + call out + benefits

Are you a forklift or plant engineer that feels undervalued, under trained or generally dissatisfied in your current position? Then you’re not alone.

Want to join a company that genuinely values its engineers, will invest time and money in giving you world class manufacturers product training and will offer you opportunities to progress up the ladder in future? Then this role is for you.

My client’s attitude is that if it wasn’t for you, then it wouldn’t have a business; you will be treated as an individual and not just a number.

As a forklift truck engineer based in the field, no two days will be the same. Based from home you will attend customer site breakdowns and your main duties will include:
• Diagnosing faults on mechanical, electrical and hydraulic systems
• Conducting repairs on LPG, diesel and electric forklift trucks and related equipment
• Performing preventative planned maintenance
• Customer service

The successful forklift truck engineer will ideally have previous experience in the service and repair of forklift trucks. However, given the level of product training and ongoing support on offer, the client is also keen to see applicants with experience on any of the following; construction plant equipment, powered access platforms, agricultural machinery, municipal vehicles or specialist military plant or vehicles.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the leading brands in the UK MHE sector and to forge a stable, long term and progressive career.

A basic salary of up to £35,000pa is available, dependent on experience + vehicle + overtime + excellent additional benefits.
