A world renowned, leading chiller manufacturer are currently looking for a Service Manager to over see the day to day operations off their Manchester service branch.

You will be responsible for..

  • The management, training and development of engineering staff operating out of the Manchester (Northern) service branch, which currently stands at  7 engineers & 2 apprentices.
  • Measure and improve engineer performance to gain efficiencies and meet P&L targets.
  • Recruitment process of all new engineering staff.

  • General day to day running of the service office, and all staff, including supervisors, both field and office based, lower management and administrative. 

You will need to come from an industry specific background, with a thorough understanding of chillers, although manufacturer experience isn't a necessity.

The benefits package includes a fully expensed company car, private health care, life insurance, death in service and an outstanding company contribution pension scheme of 7%.

About Your Recruiter..

I entered the industry in the early 2000's joining Daikin Applied (then McQuay) as an apprentice upon leaving school before progressing into a senior engineering position within the industry. In 2013, I made the crazy decision to recruit for the industry, working with both leading manufacturers and specialist service providers. I know good candidates deserve great roles, and more importantly I realise the value employers place in their staff whilst out there representing their company. I aim to introduce key talent to the Air Con world..... samyoung@seriouslyconnected.co
