Field Service Engineer
For over 30 years, Equipment Support Company (ESC) has been a global supplier in the design, manufacture and support of high vacuum deposition systems, focused on equipment used within the semiconductor manufacturing industry.

ESC has a steady growth plan, and a longstanding workforce that has expanded to 19 colleagues who benefit from a happy, open environment, where contribution is noticed and appreciated, and career progression is supported.
This Field Service Engineer role
Reporting to the Service Manager and working as part of a team of skilled Service Engineers, you will regularly travel to customer sites in the UK and worldwide commissioning new systems and supporting existing ones.

As a business, we are also invested in supporting our employees to enhance their own skills, with continuous development and training opportunities available for all, so we can support you to develop your abilities, enhance your career, and encourage the positive growth of our business.

As a Field Service Engineer, you'll receive a salary up to £35,000 potentially negotiable, starting level will be dependent on current ability and experience. You will also have the benefit of a company car or van, phone, and 30 days annual leave including bank holidays.
You'll be employed on a permanent contract working 37.5 hours per week within Monday to Friday, and whilst you'll need to be flexible with start and finish times to meet business and customer needs, flexibility will be given with an early finish time where possible. Occasionally you may be required to work weekends for which overtime would be paid.
