Land Based Service Engineer Technicians typically work on site utilising their own initiative in a customer facing role.
They are often called upon to mentor and supervise junior colleagues and dispense advice to customers on machinery selection.
This requires a blend of skills, knowledge and behaviours, safe working and environmental practice capabilities covering - power units, power trains, fabrication, mechanical, electrical, electronic, hydraulic and pneumatic system applications. These will be used in the context of the machinery and equipment in the chosen industry sector.
The technician will typically have an understanding of the interface between machine, biological systems and the working environment for example climate, soil, plant and animals. The nature of the industry will present technical challenges ranging from simple mechanics to the diagnosis and repair of complex mechanical, electronic and telemetry systems.
These operations may take place in the employer’s workplace or on the customer’s site requiring flexible working hours as dictated by seasonal requirements. Technicians may be called upon to advise customers and support work colleagues.
