Detailed Job Description

SW 4826: Engineering Process Manager

Salary: £45,000

Location: The Falkland Islands

My client is looking for an Engineering Process Manager for a 12-month fixed term contract in The Falkland Islands. The Manager will lead a small team of engineers to oversee the operation of plant equipment to dispose of contaminated oil waste. Due to the technical nature of the Process Plant, a strong mechanical and electrical engineering background is likely to provide the attributes for success. Training will take place in Devon or Hampshire and following pre-deployment holidays the team will deploy to the Falkland Island in Jan 18.

Main Responsibilities :

* Responsible for the smooth operation of the processing plant and achieving the planned liquid flow through the plant
* Liaison with UKLF, Falklands Island Staff and Mount Pleasant Airfield (MPA) Staff
* Management of the engineering team
* Manage the rotation of staff to UK ensuring that the operational capability of the plant is maintained
* Manage the development of the plant, suggesting ideas for its improvement
* Maintain a professional team that is a good ambassador for the client at all times
* Have the technical knowledge to deputise for the Deputy Manager (Fitter) and the Deputy Manager (Sampling and Testing) in their absence on rotation

Experience and Qualifications :

* A full Fitter Apprenticeship or ex-forces Engineer with excellent experience (likely to have served as a Warrant Officer or equivalent).
* A strong mechanical and electrical engineering background is an essential requirement
* Recognised mechanical and electrical engineering qualifications
* Workshop/Ship Engineering Manager experience or similar is desirable
* Excellent communication skills, both written and oral, upwards and downwards, to own staff and military staff and other contractors that you meet at MPA
* Experience of sampling and testing fuel/oil would be an advantage

Training would commence in the UK approx. October with work starting in January 2018 (15 months in total). This role will ideally suit someone from a Royal Navy, Army or Royal Air Force background. Simple, but comfortable accommodation and meals will be provided in the MPA area at no cost (civilian contractor units). 6 weeks holiday every 6 months working on a rota basis with the other team members.

Interested applicants are to submit their CV in the first instance and a covering letter if possible. Forces Recruitment Services were the first military recruitment company and are still the largest. We are providing an agency style service for our client. Please ask for Lee when making contact.
