Working life as an engineer


A career with variety

Variety is a key aspect of engineering, with a range of different working environments to choose from.

A typical day as an coffee machine engineer very much depends on the type of role and sector you are in. A PMV engineer may work on one or two types of machines for a long period while a mechanical / Reactive engineer might have several projects on the go all at the same time.

duties typically include:

  • assessing project requirements
  • measuring the performance of mechanical components
  • agreeing budgets, timescales and specifications with clients and managers
  • maintaining and modifying equipment to ensure that it is safe, reliable and efficient
  • undertaking relevant research for parts and updated software
  • testing, evaluating, modifying and re-testing products
  • writing reports and documentation
  • providing technical advice
  • analysing and interpreting data.
  • customer relationship skills
  • and of course how to make the perfect cup of coffee

Each day is a different day within our industry and we always adapted to the current change
