Abbott Capital Equipment Service Engineer (ideal location Birmingham or South UK) in Solihull, United Kingdom

We are recruiting for a Capital Equipment Service Engineer (UK) to be responsible for installs, upgrades, repairs and preventative maintenance of all legacy St. Jude Medical capital equipment in compliance with all Company, Quality & Regulatory policies and standards.

The Capital Equipment Service Engineer will cover hospitals nationally, supporting hardware/software field interventions, including system installation, preventive maintenance, calibration, upgrades, troubleshooting and repair of capital equipment sold, placed on consignment or used as demo. Working with EMEA Capital Equipment Service team members and local sales/clinical staff on the optimal scheduling of field interventions, you will also ensure accurate documentation of these interventions and any capital equipment incidents in line with QA procedures.

Candidates will ideally hold a Bachelor’s degree in electronics, engineering or a scientific discipline, with experience in a medical electronics service or related field service role and excellent electronic and mechanical engineering skills including troubleshooting. Strong communication skills, both verbal and written, are essential, as well as the ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment with little supervision. Experience with medical devices and software-based medical systems would be advantageous, alongside familiarity with cathlab and operating room procedures and protocol. The ability to be flexible and respond to situations at short notice must not be underestimated – travel within the UK is a significant element of this role, with the occasional need for international travel (located Birmingham or anywhere south of the Midlands ideal, near a major airport a plus).

This is a fantastic opportunity to become a valued member of a highly skilled EMEA Service team. As you’d expect from an innovative global healthcare company, we offer a competitive range of benefits including excellent salaries, a fantastic defined contribution pension scheme, private healthcare, life assurance and a flexible benefits scheme.
