Job Title - Senior Project Engineer 

Business Unit - Nestlé Purina 
Position Title – Project Engineers 

Location: Sudbury 

 

Competitive Salary plus potential bonus and fantastic benefits package. 

 

This is a full-time permanent opportunity, but we are always open to discuss individual’s flexible working needs so please speak to use during the recruitment process to understand what this could look like for you. 

 

Position Summary

Due to continuous growth and investment the Project team is growing to meet the demand; we are recruiting for 2 Project Engineers to join the team in Sudbury Factory. 

We’re looking for Project Engineers, who are able to demonstrate a broad range of skills from contractor management to problem solving. We never stand still in a continually evolving and competitive market, so you’ll need a continuous improvement mind-set and a willingness to get stuck in too.

At Purina PetCare, we're passionately committed to helping pets enjoy happier, healthier and longer lives because we're pet owners too.

In our Sudbury factory the 200 strong workforce produce some of the UK’s most popular brands including Go-Cat, Bakers, Purina ONE, BETA and Pro Plan providing consumers with a product to meet their every need. And this ancient, bustling market town in the heart of the Stour valley is surrounded by countryside of outstanding natural beauty making Sudbury an idea place for animal lovers. Plus, there’s the added advantage of London being a 45 minute train ride away from nearby Colchester.

Manufacturing in Nestlé is all about ensuring the consumer receives a perfect quality product, at the right time and place whilst driving losses from our business in order to maximise efficiency & productivity. This is particularly critical as we continue our journey towards being a LEAN Enterprise. This is the biggest change in the way we work that Nestlé have ever seen. It’s worldwide. It is exciting. You could play a key part in it.
