Manufacturing Engineer Jobs

Manufacturing engineers are responsible for the technical management, maintenance and development of new and existing production lines within a wide range of manufacturing companies.

They are employed by production and process companies such as good, drink and car manufacturers.

Manufacturing engineer jobs include:

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

  • making improvements to current operations to improve efficiency.

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

Salaries are typically in the region of £20,000 to £40,000. Chartered engineers can earn up to £60,000.
