Maintenance Engineer Jobs

Maintenance engineer jobs plan the routine maintenance of plant equipment and machinery. Maintenance engineer jobs attend breakdowns, diagnose faults and oversee time-critical repairs.

In modern complex plants, maintenance engineer jobs employ sophisticated computerised systems to schedule the work. Maintenance engineer jobs may oversee the work of teams of maintenance personnel, such as fitters and technicians.

Maintenance engineer jobs can be involved in all stages of manufacturing. In equipment development, maintenance engineer jobs work to incorporate efficient methods of maintaining new equipment and may be involved in the installation and commissioning process. Through the production phase, maintenance engineers work to improve the useful life of plant equipment and machinery.

Maintenance engineer jobs play a vital role in the efficiency, development and progress of manufacturing/processing industries. Maintenance engineer jobs work with other professionals to improve production facilities, reduce the incidence of costly breakdowns, and develop strategies to improve the overall reliability and safety of plant, personnel and production processes.

Maintenance engineer jobs may also be called upon to develop plant asset care policies, liaising closely with suppliers, customers, other departments and senior managers.

Maintenance engineer jobs typical work activities include

  • designing maintenance strategies, procedures and methods;
  • planning and scheduling planned and unplanned work;
  • arranging specialist procurement of fixtures, fittings or components;
  • controlling maintenance tools, stores and equipment;
  • monitoring and controlling maintenance costs;
  • writing maintenance strategies to help with installation and commissioning guidelines.
