Preferred skill:

  • The ideal candidate should have a broad technical background with mechanical or electrical experience and a good understanding of controls, pneumatics and instrumentation.

Overseas working is also a possibility, and it is a good opportunity to travel and support Glatt projects worldwide.

  • A strong remuneration package with other significant employment benefits will be available to the right candidate.
