Job Overview: Our client has retained our services to support them in appointing a Field Service Engineer who will be responsible for the installation, commissioning and servicing of injection moulding machines and associated ancillary equipment.

You will ideally be based in the Birmingham/Coventry area but be willing to cover all of the UK as well as overseas travel.
