Manufacturing engineer jobs are employed by production and process companies (e.g. food/drink/car manufacturers).

Manufacturing engineer jobs include:

  • planning;
  • managing budgets;
  • maintaining statistical and financial records;
  • supervising engineering and technical staff;
  • purchasing and installing equipment;
  • responding to breakdowns;
  • diagnosing faults;
  • investigating production problems;

Manufacturing engineer jobs may be required to do shift and ‘on-call' work, particularly where manufacturing equipment is in continual 24-hour operation. Career progression for manufacturing engineer jobs is often improved by a move into managerial positions or related areas of employment such as plant/production engineering.
