Maintenance Planner

We are looking for a Maintenance Planner to join our Engineering team.


The primary focus of this role is to plan and schedule the maintenance of our machines, supervise contractors and provide them with their schedules, create and issue Purchase Orders and coordinate the accuracy of all data into the maintenance system. It will also require the development of equipment service schedules and maintenance programs based on analysis of equipment performance to highlight improvement opportunities and increase reliability.


As a well organised person you will have:

  • Demonstrated  understanding of maintenance or supply chain planning
  • Possible background in Mechatronics or Reliability engineering
  • Data analytics and modelling, KPI development and reporting
  • Ability to use a computer based maintenance system (Daxeam, Microsoft AX dynamics)
  • Experience dealing with contractors and staff (all the people who actually go out and do the doing)
  • Knowledge and adherence of Health & Safety requirements and procedures

Continuous improvement around existing processes and systems is also a key part of this role.  Needing to move from our paper forms to tablets so data is auto populated is only the start.   You will be the main contact person for this project and will work closely with others to get this implemented.   There are lots of changes and plans for the future of our company and you need to be mindful of this and have the ability and willingness to adapt.
