Automation Engineer

We are currently partnered with a top multinational pharmaceutical company in search of an automation engineer to work on a 6-month contract with opportunity to extend this further, potentially indefinitely. This fantastic company has recently opened a new facility to produce high-quality medicines that prevent disease and sustain life for patients on a global scale and needs someone to aid them with the commissioning phase of the project.

This position can be remote for the first 1-2 months but then will expect the candidate to be based on site full time within the manufacturing facility. The job role requires hands on experience of working within an ongoing production environment, being agile and being involved in the ongoing maintenance of manufacturing systems including DeltaV.

The job will provide a wide range of challenges which will ensure the successful candidate will gain a wealth of experience.

Activities include:

  • Commissioning activities
  • Aid with troubleshooting activities
  • Help with issues with recipes and operations
  • Working on debugging and programming

Qualifications Needed:

  • 5+ years experience working with DeltaV
  • Extensive knowledge on troubleshooting, debugging and software
  • Commission experience
  • A background in Pharmaceuticals
  • Programming experience
