Pukka Pies is an independent company with a passion for pies! They are made with the finest ingredients by dedicated and caring people which has resulted in a 33% growth to the business. To sustain and build on this success, the factory at Syston, Leicester is moving to a 7 day working pattern which is resulting in the creation of 3 new Maintenance Engineering jobs.

Why chose Pukka Pies?

Established in 1963 and now employing 320 people in Syston, Leicestershire, Pukka Pies is truly a great place to work. Staff welfare and job security is most important to the company and this is proven by such a low staff turnover. Pukka Pies continues to experience growth moving from the original days of small bakeries and having their classic pie at the football to now being able to purchase this well recognised brand through major supermarkets, you will definitely know when it’s a Pukka Pie as they only bake pies with their name on it!

Could this Maintenance Engineering job be for you?

We are looking for qualified engineers, either mechanical or electrical ideally you will be apprenticeship trained although this is not essential. It is really important that you are competent in electrical maintenance engineering but your job will be mix of mechanical and electrical as you will be supporting all of the factory.

Engineering capability is key just as important we are looking for drive and enthusiasm to work well within a team but also on your own to ensure that our engineering plant and equipment is as efficient as possible. You will be working in a team of 4 Engineers (including you) and working a 3 on 3 off 12 hour day shift pattern. We are looking for a flexible approach to working as sometimes we will need to accommodate different working hours to meet productions need. A call out system is also in operation on a rota basis.

Technically, if you have proven experience of processing equipment/automated packing lines, service equipment including boilers and pneumatics, and have previous industry experience within a high volume pressured manufacturing sector this would be great! Food industry experience is not essential. Training will be provided, onsite and offsite.
