Field Engineer – Food Processing Equipment

Northern Great Britain and Ireland

Maintain world-beating food production equipment for an international company that holds over 25 patents and is setting up a brand-new UK subsidiary.

When you see finely sliced processed meats or perfectly portioned steaks in your supermarket chiller cabinet or local restaurant, there’s a good chance that Grasselli’s technology is behind it. We’ve been supplying the UK and Eire food industry for over 3 decades and our slicing, skinning and portioning equipment sets the standard for precision, quality and productivity

Food processing companies have associated Grasselli with innovation for over 30 years. From day one we set new standards and our equipment today combines precision mechanical engineering with state-of-the-art electronic controls.

We mentioned our multiple patents earlier. Additionally, we’ve developed 20 new prototype products in the past 5 years that are opening new doors for us. It’s a great place to be an engineer, so why not join us as we establish our new UK subsidiary?

Your role

Until now we’ve left sales and technical support to our distributor, but all that changes in 2019. We’re bringing this all under the Grasselli UK umbrella and looking for talented people to join our start-up team.

You’ll be one of our first field service engineers, covering a large territory that will take in Northern England, Scotland and Ireland. There’ll be good mix of installation, commissioning and maintenance work, as well as customer training.

Alongside the technical aspects, you’ll very much be the face of Grasselli UK. We need someone who can build up relationships with key customers, spot new business opportunities and ultimately provide an excellent all-round service.

This is a home-based position but expect to be traveling at least 4 nights per week, including some weekends on-call. Naturally we’ll provide vehicle, home office and equipment, as well as any training and help you need in planning and managing a large territory.

You’ll have a voice in setting up Grasselli UK’s technical services - and you’ll be in pole position for opportunities that arise as the operation grows. You can also count on great training, including an in-depth technical introduction when you join.

Sounds good? Then read on.
