It is the place where we connect and unite, share love and memories, recharge and make new ideas come to life. Kitchens set the stage for the stories of tomorrow. Join us in our mission of Designing Kitchens for Life!

Salary: £33,745 per year

What you’ll be doing

The Greater Picture: At Nobia, we’re not just designing kitchens; we’re building connections. This role is integral to our journey.

Reporting to a Maintenance Shift Leader, you’ll be kept busy responding to breakdowns and carrying out planned preventative maintenance. You’ll get involved with the provision and co-ordination of engineering project support and the maintenance of assembly/process machinery, plus general site facilities such as heating and lighting.

You’ll make sure the working environment is of a high standard and that we adhere to all health, safety and environmental requirements (including risk assessments and any accident investigations) and provide full support with root cause analysis on all major breakdowns.

Your skillset for performance:

You should be qualified to at least NVQ level 3 (or equivalent) in a relevant engineering discipline and be able to demonstrate experience of preventative maintenance activities and a good working knowledge of machine maintenance and operation, and of computerised maintenance management systems. Along with being IT literate you’ll have excellent communication skills, with the ability to present ideas and proposals clearly; plus an understanding of modern problem-solving techniques and knowledge of lean manufacturing systems.

You’ll also need a flexible approach to your working hour as we operate five shifts per week, on a 3-week rotating pattern with the following shift times: 6am-2pm, 2pm-10pm or 10pm-6am.

We believe you will enjoy working here if you:

  • You have an open-minded personality and are thinking “outside-in” starting from customers’ needs
  • You challenge the status quo; connect all actions to clear impact and goals and dare to fail.
  • You listen to customers, colleagues, and other stakeholders; accept different views and opinions; proactively share knowledge and actively show and create openness within the team

What’s in it for you? Why choose Nobia?

We genuinely want your role within Nobia to be exciting, inspiring and rewarding. We offer you a fast-paced but balanced environment with opportunities for growth, whether that’s vertical or horizontal, and where your voice is heard. You’ll quickly notice how much we value team collaboration, transparency, fun while working and we focus on being an inclusive and great place to work. We are a team that brings our heart to work. And our commitment to quality means working here isn’t just better for you - it’s better for life!

  • A generous discount on our kitchen products
