Job Description

Maintenance Engineer


Are you an experienced Maintenance Engineer looking for a new challenge?  We are recruiting a number of Engineers to be part of an integral delivery programme for an MOD contract. 

Why this role is a bit different?  If you have been in the Army recently and looking for that next career move, this could be the role for you?  Alternatively, if you have a mechanical engineering background and willing to become a member of the Army Reserve (through our clients sponsorship programme) then this could be the opportunity for you.

You’ll be based out of their Service Centre in Larkhill and will be required to travel in the UK and Overseas if required


What you’ll be doing;

  • Involved in service and maintenance of materials handling and plant equipment in support of the MOD.
  • Fault Finding, break downs, planned preventative maintenance and pre delivery inspection of equipment.
  • You will ensure customer service is kept to a high level and any queries are addresses
  • Adhering to safety guidelines and policies set out by customers and the business
  • You’ll ensure customer relationships are maintained and developed through high standards of service.


What you’ll need;

  • Ideally you’ll have a technical qualification and experience working on plant, MHE, powered access, HGV’s or related equipment experience however a full training programme will be provided.
  • Previous military experience is advantageous but its not a necessity as full military reservist training is offered
  • You’ll have a good understanding of hydraulic, mechanical and electrical principals
  • You’ll be able to work under pressure and manage and prioritise your workload


This is an excellent opportunity which offers base salary of £34,008 (subject to annual increases) plus an additional £3k bonus for maintaining Sponsored Reserve status.  Overtime is also paid at 1.5 Monday to Friday and x2 at weekends.   You will also receive pay enhancements when deployed on MOD assignments.
