Malaby Biogas are approaching the operational phase of their state-of-the-art Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant in Warminster, close to Frome and on the Wiltshire/Somerset border.
As a result they are keen to grow the existing team and recruit an AD Process Technician. With the plant approaching the operational phase, this is an exciting opportunity to join a small and innovative company in an increasingly popular industry, which offers a sustainable alternative to landfill waste.Malaby Biogas is Warminster's newest greentech business
To efficiently assist with the day-to-day operations of a new AD plant. The plant operates automatically 24/7 but the role will be mainly normal working hours with scheduled weekend duties. This is both a technical and compliance-focused role, as well as an activity which will require physical exertion and some manual work. The AD Process Technican will control the flow and processing of food waste, in a state-of-the-art facility.
You will be responsible for diagnosing operational issues and undertaking corrective action where necessary. You will use initiative and an analytical approach to monitor gauges, meters and control panels, using your judgement to ensure an efficient and effective process. The role will also involve being responsible for loaders, hoppers, pumps, engines and generators, ensuring safe and continuous operations. Record-keeping is critical, and you will keep accurate and detailed records of plant settings and outputs, as well as adhering to health and safety and environmental compliance. The role will have a degree of responsibility for the critical control points within the process.
We are looking for someone with a fairly unique set of skills, but who principally has a flexible approach to working within a small and focused team in a "start-up" environment. You will be comfortable working autonomously in a responsible and technical role, with a high degree of initiative and a "can do" attitude. A meticulous approach to operations, monitoring and records is essential. At the same time, a willingness to get your hands dirty is also important as without your input on a day-to-day basis the plant will not function effectively.
Educated to a minimum of GCSE or equivalent in Maths and English, the ideal candidate will also be able to demonstrate a strong analytical mind and good IT skills.
The ideal candidate might come from a waste management, engineering or sciences background having worked in a similar process-driven role. Alternatively, the role might also suit someone from a farming or agricultural background looking for a more technically-challenging opportunity.
Due to the growth of this innovative sector, this role offers real and rapid career progression for the right candidate.
