As the Customer Engineering / Installation and Maintenance Technician, you will be part of an existing technician team but will be the only maintenance technician covering a diverse customer base across the whole of Ireland. Your work will be planned by a team in Worcester, UK, with work activities being communicated daily through a company software platform loaded onto a Windows-based tablet. Supporting the whole of Ireland will require an amount of driving and the scheduling team will have the intention of strategically coordinating planned maintenance campaign work in areas which will involve some overnight stays to reduce the amount of travel required. Reactive maintenance may require travel and possibly overnight stay at short notice. Larger installations when they occur will be forward planned and may also need overnight stays. You will be working mainly at customer sites from a fully stocked company supplied medium sized service van which has a bespoke racking system holding parts, hand and power tools and specialist installation and test equipment to allow you to complete your jobs.

As the Customer Engineering / Maintenance Technician, you will

  • Install and maintain
    • Cryogenic storage vessels ranging from a few hundred to several thousand litres typically holding liquid nitrogen, argon, oxygen and also liquid carbon dioxide which will connect to systems typically incorporating:
      • Pipelines.
      • Ambient and electrical vaporizers.
      • Pressure, flow, level and temperature control instrumentation.
    • Gas cylinders and cylinder packs as backups and primary supply.
    • Any other allied equipment supplied and / or maintained by Air Products Customer Engineering such as:
      • Small and large-scale generators.
      • Leisure soft drink and beer dispense equipment.
      • Food packaging and processing machines.
      • Biomedical storage freezers and control systems.
      • Cryo chambers/pods and cryo saunas.
  • Provide an element of support to our road tank fleet distribution team carrying out running repairs on the cryogenic side of the road tankers and depot storage tanks (valves, regulators and pipework). When you are up-to-speed, your position will also support our commercial team and contractors by carrying out site surveys and providing technical assistance and advice for new and existing customers.

As the Customer Engineering / Maintenance Technician, you already are or have

  • Relevant academic qualifications in an Electromechanical / Electrical / Electronic / Mechanical / Maintenance discipline
  • Experience of working to written schemes of examination to carry out PSSR inspections on pressure systems
  • Having current or previous PSSR inspector status would be highly advantageous.
  • A strong ability to work on your own initiative allowing you to problem solve and diagnose equipment and system faults relating to pressure and flow.
  • Capacity to read layout drawings and system schematics (P&ID’s).
  • A good driving record
  • Confidence and interpersonal skills when dealing with customers.

What We Offer
We need dedicated and driven people who are committed to getting it right with a never-ending desire to learn, improve and contribute.

In return, we offer a competitive salary & benefits package, a culture of respect, challenge and innovation – with excellent opportunities for growth and development.

We will provide a bespoke training program for the Maintenance Technician role which is typically run from our CryoEase centre of excellence offices in Worcester.

This will therefore require time away from home in the first months of training but for the right candidate this training program is fully flexible with senior technicians and management also travelling to Ireland to provide field training after initial inductions at Worcester. Training is then ongoing with a computer based ‘Learning Solutions Online’ program and external training where required.

Normal working hours are 40 per week Monday to Friday, but flexibility is important as to meet the needs of the business this role may involve working outside normal hours (rarely on weekends unless supporting occasional customer shutdowns for maintenance) where overtime rates are paid.

We thank all applicants in advance for their interest; however, only those applicants who are being considered for an interview, or are currently employed by Air Products, will be contacted.
At Air Products, we work in an environment where diversity is crucial, inclusion is in our culture, and each person knows they belong and matter!
You will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, colour, religion, national origin, age, citizenship, gender, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, or veteran status.

We look forward to hearing from you.
