The total organisation comprises two cheese factories and several of its own shops. Our organisation has over 450 employees.

Examples include the implementation of a packaging line, a robotised cheese treatment line and a completely renovated, enlarged and automated cheese warehouse.
How would it affect you if someone called you about a breakdown in one of the machines? Does this frighten you or does it actually give you energy because you can show them what you are worth? At that moment, you can ensure, together with the operator, that our processes get back on track. During your day shift, you identify possible areas for improvement and carry out preventive maintenance in order to avoid malfunctions in the future. The installations you work on are very diverse; on the one hand, it is mainly about liquid processes such as milk and whey processing, on the other hand, handling and packaging.
Experience in these areas is certainly desirable, but we also offer you the opportunity to improve yourself where necessary. This can be done both by following a training course and by gaining practical experience together with your immediate colleagues. You will work independently, but of course also as part of the team with four other mechanics. Together, we can tackle any challenge that arises. We immediately see you as a full colleague and give you the opportunity to get to know our factory and systems. After a familiarisation period, you will work on standby shifts, which are divided equally among the TD team. On average, you will work on standby one weekend every five weeks. In addition, you will have one fixed day of on-call duty on weekdays, where we will take your wishes and private circumstances into account as much as possible. On average, you will be called up twice a month.
In this position, you have the option of working 32 or 36 hours.
In addition to your CV, we would like to receive a short motivation why you are enthusiastic about being trained as an All-round Mechanic Technical Service. For questions about this vacancy, please contact Feliks Eshuis (HR Advisor) on 06-53530241.
