Honeyman Group Ltd, a progressive company and market leader in providing first class solutions to the pharmaceutical industry is currently seeking a number of ambitious and enthusiastic individuals to join the team.
This is a fantastic opportunity to utilise and further enhance your engineering skills and develop your expertise within a world leading pharmaceutical process support company.
Full specialist training will be provided for those with a background in Mechanical Engineering.
Working within our Water Engineering group, you will be based between our Head Office in Barnard Castle (County Durham) our manufacturing facility in Shildon (County Durham) and at client facilities within the healthcare, medical device and pharmaceutical sectors (typically within UK and Ireland).
There will be the opportunity to work across a broad range of projects, primarily in the field of installing and maintaining purified water systems (RO/EDI) and water for injection (WFI) distillers.
Fundamentally, this role is focused around the build, installation and maintenance of purified water systems.
Our business is geared around a small amount of high valve, longer term projects. This means that our Engineers are involved in many facets of our operation – from the initial design to the install completion – you can be sure that no two days are the same!
Our systems are manufactured at our facility in Shildon, County Durham. Our systems begin with our metal fabricators manufacturing stainless steel skid frames. These skid frames are then populated with equipment and components connected by pipework in metal or plastic. The Engineer will work alongside the fabricators and design team to ensure that components are correctly fitted and will help out as required with manufacture. As all systems are bespoke, getting to know the system well at this stage makes it much easier than when it is at the client site.
Following fabrication, the systems will be tested. The Engineer will start up and commission the system for testing purposes which will be inspected by the client. Following successful inspection, the system is to be made good for transport.
After arrival of the equipment to the client site, the Engineer will liaise with the contractor/client to arrange safe offloading and positioning of the equipment in place. Once in place, services will need to be connected and consumables added. Some systems will require installation of plastic/stainless pipe or PTFE hose distribution networks. The Engineer will then be able to start up the system and commence site commissioning. Whilst on site, the Engineer must maintain permits to work and all relevant health and safety requirements.
At the end of installation, the Engineer will then continue through the qualification stage with the client, working with our internal quality team. This will be when the system is handed over to the client.
The system will then be added to our growing list of systems that we regularly service and maintain as well as the provision of a breakdown callout service. A service visit typically includes changing gaskets/seals, calibrations (temperature, flow, pressure, conductivity, ORP), resin changes and chemical sanitisations.
There will be times spent in our offices in Barnard Castle assisting within the department. Typical duties include:
Work alongside our design team to produce component data sheets for submission to our suppliers and clients.
To procure components for system manufacture whilst maintaining traceable records.
To assist with project documentation including functional design specification and acceptance testing.
To organise subcontractor attendance
To carry out project management tasks
To plan and organise scheduled maintenance activities
This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and focused candidate.
