Turbomachinery Field Service Engineer - John Crane Australia

Ignite is proud to be the recruitment partner of John Crane Australia, an international Engineering organisation who specialise in mechanical seals, filtration, power transmission couplings, gasket products, dry gas seals and system design. JCA are part of the Smiths Group, who have been operating for over 100 years worldwide. They are seeking a Turbomachinery Field Service Engineer to join their Melbourne office.
This Turbomachinery Field Service Engineer position is a permanent, full time position, therefore you can secure your long term career with a market leader in their field.
The role is a mix of both Melbourne based work, and site-based work, however it’s not a FIFO role in the typical sense. The site-based component can be anywhere from 4 to 8 months in a year, depending on client requirements. Realistically you could expect to spend a 50/50 split between Melbourne and sites, with approximately 1 month stints away at a time. When you are working away, JCA will offer you site and offshore allowances, which will increase your overall earnings per annum.

  • Ensuring service visits are executed on time, to quality (HSE) standards and customer expectations
  • Creating comprehensive customer reports outlining all site activities including observations, recommendations and actions
  • Identifying and assisting customers with upgrades of all Turbomachinery products
  • Supporting all Turbomachinery activities such as wet to gas retrofit measurement and installations
  • Providing training to customers on gas seal and system related subjects
  • Troubleshooting on all Turbomachinery products.

  • Degree qualified in Mechanical Engineering or Mechanical Trade qualifications or equivalent work experience in a similar capacity
  • A minimum of 3 years in a technical service capacity within a mechanical engineering or similar sector
  • Basic knowledge of instrumentation
