Expanding the FEP workforce
Fife Ethylene Plant (FEP) at Mossmorran is continuing to expand its workforce – with 16 new jobs filled in the first six months of this year. And the latest recruitment continues the plant’s proud 35 year history of providing skilled manufacturing jobs in the Fife community.
The range of positions ranges from brand new apprentices through to highly-skilled Process and Machinery Technicians and Engineers. Every one of the new recruits will help to enhance the existing skills pool at the site, as well as opening the door to a rewarding and high value career, with the best of training and opportunities on offer.
In addition to the full-time posts, four university students have also had the chance to gain themselves a great advantage on the career ladder, with work placements at the Mossmorran complex, ranging from eight weeks over the summer to year-long industrial placements.
The new posts include a machinery engineer; a process engineer; six process technicians; two new maintenance apprentices; a business administration apprentice; an instrument technician; a machinery technician, an analyser technician and two graduate trainee engineers. They will carry out a variety of roles, from the maintenance and repair of equipment to admin duties and vital planning and process tasks to assist the plant’s role in the manufacturing of ethylene.
Martin Burrell, plant manager at FEP, said: “It is great to be able to welcome so many new members to our team. For over three decades we have been providing some of the most skilled and rewarded roles in Fife and we are proud to continue to do so. Our new recruits range from complete beginners in the field, to people with many years of experience under their belts and they will all bring their own attributes to FEP.”
