Mechanical Maintenance Supervisor/Manager

Job no: 503140
Work type: Full Time
Location: Melbourne - West

At Visy, our people make us stand out from the crowd. We’re always seeking solutions, opportunities and possibilities. We look for people who see what’s ahead and run towards it. These people are helping us to achieve our vision to become the global leader in sustainable packaging solutions. Together, we can create a better world.

The opportunity:

Visy Glass has a wealth of experience in crafting pure, sustainable and iconic glass packaging for many of the world's best-known food and beverage brands. We are proud to provide high quality glass packaging for beer, wine, spirits, food, non-alcoholic beverages and dedicated to exceed our customers' expectations and fuel consumers' desire for glass.

As the Mechanical Maintenance Supervisor/Manager, you will report directly to the Reliability Manager and are responsible to lead the General Mechanical Maintenance department (15-20 people) providing expertise in engineering design, fault finding & investigation as well as analysis of engineering systems in the plant, with the objective of optimizing machine and production reliability, productivity and maximizing maintenance efficiency and environmental impact.

You will be a strong advocate to develop a continuous improvement culture in the General Maintenance department and promote safety, quality and team work throughout the plant at Spotswood, located at 36 Booker Street.

This role works very closely with the production teams on the shop floor who are on rotating shift cycles. Key responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • Lead the safety initiative in the department through safety talks, hazard identification/risk assessment, accident investigation, auditing and development of safe operating procedures and through personal role modelling.
  • Supervise the General Maintenance department providing guidance, support and training for tradesmen.
  • Control labour, equipment and maintenance costs whilst ensuring the availability of adequate change parts and consumables.
  • Coordinate the breakdown maintenance, job change action plans to minimise line/machine down time.
  • Recommend improvements, modifications, upgrades and exchanges to plant equipment and machinery. Specify equipment required for upgrades.
  • Project manage new system installations and modifications (including CER preparation), including the provision of labour, materials and other resources, to ensure project cost allocation is not exceeded and timelines are met.

Whilst predominantly a day based role, this role can be demanding from a physical and technical perspective as our factory operates 24/7 and there may be requirements to work other hours as necessary to support operations.

What you will bring to the team:

You will be a mechanical trade qualified person, hands on experience working within a fast paced, high volume manufacturing environment. Expertise in glass/industrial manufacturing maintenance will be highly regarded.

You will have an eye for detail with an analytical mindset where you drive for continuous improvements and enjoy understanding the technical aspect of your operations. Excellent communication skills in dealing with a diverse range of people internal and external to the plant would help you succeed on the role.

Proven experience effectively managing a team including driving performance, culture change, accountability and training initiatives is essential. Relevant degree or post trade qualifications and lean manufacturing qualifications will be looked upon favorably. Your technical knowledge regarding essential plant services such as compressors, vacuum systems, conveyor systems, pneumatic conveying and water cooling systems will be highly regarded.

Most importantly, you will hold the safety of yourself and your team above all else.

If you are energetic, technically competent and interested to the role, feel free to contact Shavonne on 0466 023 698 for a confidential discussion or apply directly online.

When you join Visy, you’re joining a global leader dedicated to making serious progress in the sustainable packaging and recycling industries. We want to find solutions, make an impact and grow our business. If you can help us, you’ll fit right in. There’s never been a better time to join Visy!
