Our client, Island Bakery on the beautiful Isle of Mull is looking for a multi-skilled engineer to join their small but growing business.  You will be a team of one and be responsible for keeping the factory and equipment running smoothly.  

The role involves routine repairs and preventative maintenance on a diverse range of factory production and packaging machinery, as well as building maintenance and other related tasks. They key is you have a logical mind and enjoy fault finding and problem-solving.  The role is more heavily weighted to mechanical engineering (circa 70%) with around 30% of issues being electrical.  On the electrical side, these tend not to be complex i.e. replacing a sensor, changing light fittings etc.  On the mechanical side, there are around 12 different key pieces of machinery that you will have to become familiar with.  So you should be happy working with bearings, chains and carrying out some welding and so on.

Hours of work are flexible, five days per week but our client would like you to work 2 Saturday's per month as part of your 5 day week.  This will allow some maintenance time when there is no production taking place.

To be considered for this role you will be:

  • proficient in working with mechanical and electronic equipment (as described above)
  • demonstrate a logical mind who loves fault finding/diagnosis
  • happy to work on your own within a family feel organisation

In return, you will have a competitive rate of pay and enjoy being in charge of your own workload in the most beautiful place in the world (we are quite biased) and get to sample some of the finest biscuits ever to be made!
