Field Service/Calibration Engineer (104jc) – Egham, Surrey – £35 – £45k + Benefits DOE


My client that was established in the 50’s and are globally recognised as a leader in Hydraulic Testing and Motion Simulations systems are now due to a significant increase in demand are now seeking to recruit a further engineer to join their team.


You will be reporting to the Director of Support services, and your role, once fully trained will be to service, calibrate and maintain their systems at client sites across the UK and Europe, however once fully trained after about 6 to 12 months depending on your skills level, travel will then extend to the rest of the world, as they have further bases established in the USA and China.


The key requirement for this role is that you will need a strong background in hydraulics and mechanical systems, but if you also have a background in electrical and electronics that will also be helpful. Experience in transducer calibration would be beneficial although comprehensive training will be given. The engineer will also provide maintenance/service support to customers as needed.


The scale of each of their client’s project will vary from a single actuator to an entire multi-actuator system and coping with the difference in operational complexity is a key element, as such this is an exciting and diverse role and would interest and excite anyone with this level of engineering background.


You will be trained on their own in-house developed operational software but should have some experience with control systems. You will need to be familiar with preparations for on-site work such as site-specific Risk Assessments and safe systems of work documentation (Method Statements).


The role requires good technical experience in the disciplines of mechanical, hydraulic (essential, ideally NVQ level 4 or HND/HNC level), electrical & electronic systems (highly desirable) and ideally these skills would have been gained within a servo-control atmosphere. This is very much a “hands on” role where you will be required to work both autonomously and as part of an Engineering team.


So, in this role you will be expected to have about 50% travel over the course of a year, so some weeks you can be away Mon – Fri and others maybe one or two days a week, but accommodation, travel and subsistence will be covered by the company.


The ideal candidate would probably come from mechanical engineering background, with a heavy emphasis on hydraulics as some of their systems work on 3000 PSI (Three Thousand) PSI, as the hiring manager came from a mechanical avionics background.


In return they are offering an excellent salary package with a range of £35-£45k, depending on your skills base and how long they have to spend training you on their equipment and systems, as well as company vehicle, 25 days holiday + Bank Holidays, Salary Sacrifice Company pension scheme, and Death in Service Benefit which is 4 x salary.
