The Scottish Salmon Company is looking for …


North Region, Stornoway Office

Competitive salary dependent on experience


…to join our team of passionate aquaculture professionals.


An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Engineering Supervisor to join our Engineering team to support the business in all aspects of aquaculture, from understanding and assisting the growth in both freshwater hatcheries and marine farms to interacting with local and industry stakeholders.


As this varied support role is essential to the smooth running of the facility, applicants must have a hands-on background in planning and organising busy workloads, electro- and/or mechanical repair/maintenance. Ideally with electrical qualification to 17th Edition, the successful candidate will aim to make a positive contribution to the continued success of the business by reducing downtime due to mechanical issues.


Experience in a food processing environment and knowledge of food hygiene protocols would be useful but not essential as training will be given. Ideally, you will have been in a similar role where you have proven experience of immediate and planned maintenance/repair of plant and machinery including mechanical handling equipment. Working Monday to Friday, our engineers also operate an on-call rota which covers weekends, so a current, clean driving licence is essential.  


The Scottish Salmon Company is 100% focused on Scotland. We produce our salmon with a pride recognised at home and around the World. We require passionate individuals dedicated to delivering the highest standards in all aspects of our business from animal husbandry to customer service.


In return we offer a competitive salary package within a successful and innovative company committed to sustainability. Where required, assistance with relocation will also be available.


To apply and/or request a detailed job specification please use the contact details below. Please note applications are requested by CV and covering letter.
