The Opportunity

Interim Process Engineer

3-4 months

Daily rate


I hear you want a challenge? And you like fixing and improving things? And you’re a process engineer?


Read on, compadre.


The Company


They manufacture some of the most well-known brands that you’ll find in your cupboards and fridges. It’s a multi-site business and particularly this factory has a lot of history.


The manufacturing process is quite complex. It involves raw materials that aren’t all that easy to work with; all sorts of complex electrical and mechanical operations; some technically challenging pieces too; a very “process-heavy” operation.


If you don’t like a challenge, you don’t like solving problems and you don’t get a joy from optimising processes which are not running well…


This is NOT for you. I repeat, NOT for you.


  • Complex processes.
  • Household brands.
  • Demanding customer base.


The Role


  • Proper interim job.
  • Factory based with a clear focus on improving their processes
  • Make a tangible, sustainable difference onsite.


So. This isn’t backfilling a permanent role. It’s a proper interim job.


People and processes? Well this is all about processes.


I don’t need to teach a process engineer how to suck eggs. You’re going to be hands-on, on the shop floor and working with the kit and looking at how to make their processes as efficient as possible.


So you’ll be making a difference. Which is a great place to be.




Pretty simple.


  • Chemical Engineer (Ideal, almost essential)
  • Process Experience – Drinks/Dairy/Canning/Brewery/Pharma (ideal and probably essential!).
  • Really good at what you do.
  • Available immediately / within a week’s notice.


Ideally a chemical engineer by trade, which means food industry experience for a change is NOT essential!


If you’ve never done interim before, again it’s NOT essential!


Think of yourself as a manufacturing industry, engineering version of Sherlock Holmes.

You’re a consulting detective/engineer.

You need to crack the puzzle. Except the puzzle involves machinery rather than murders.


It’s on a daily rate.


What to do now.


Again, simple.


  • Be a chemical engineer/process engineer
  • Either click apply or email me at
  • Add your current daily rate and references if you’re feeling proactive.
