* Writing user-friendly procedures, turning complex / detailed manufacturer language into meaningful procedures for the Operations team

You will be employed on a permanent contract, working Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm from our new state of the art Plastics to Oil facility in Holyhead. There is some scope for partial home working for the right candidate, although site-based working will still be required, as you work closely with our engineers.
