This is an exciting role where you will be working away and TRAVEL anywhere in the world for 3 weeks at a time, following the installation of the machines, it will be your responsibility to set up machines after installation and work with the operators on site.  So, you will be away for 3 weeks.  You will then travel home and have 1 week off, before travelling back to the site, or a different site, depending on the size of the job.  So before applying you must ensure you are happy to travel the world.  Which is obviously a fantastic perk in itself as you will have evenings and weekends to explore. 

Receiving world class training, you will be given the knowledge and tools to:

Prepare: You will coordinate with the Project Coordinator on the commissioning work to be performed on-site and the set schedule.  Coordinating with the Site Supervisor and/or Senior Installation Engineer regarding handover of installation work.  
Startup: Involves commissioning the machine based on the Acceptance Protocol, including starting the machine after installation.  Checking the machine for correct connection of all parts (electrical, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic and software).  Point of contact for technical aspects during commissioning at customer location, providing feedback to Project Coordinator.  Identifying bottlenecks, both technical and planning to the Project Coordinator. Performing various test runs for production based on the Acceptance Protocol.  Solving technical problems.  Recording and te-rugging to the PC all machine parameters at the time of transfer to the customer. 
Training: Giving instruction and training to machine operators about the operation and maintenance of the machine.  Assessing the level of knowledge of the machine operator and giving feedback about this to the Project Coordinator.  
Your training will also include Process Improvement, Quality, reporting and Safety.  

To be successful in this role, you will need excellent communication skills to work well with external customers whilst also working closely with internal people of the team.  With each job, you will either be on your own or work within a team of 2 so you must be happy to work on your own when required.  You will have significant experience working with machines, ideally 2 years + experience in commissioning machines and the personality to deliver the training to customers on site.
