Manufacturing Technician


We are a leading company in the manufacture of Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) making globally admired brands such as Gillette, Fairy and Oral-B. Here, at P&G's Reading Plant, we manufacture Gillette and Old Spice products, including some of the world’s most popular shaving preparations, deodorants and anti-perspirants.

Our Manufacturing Line Technicians play an integral role within P&G's Reading Plant manufacturing facility. Day-to-day this involves material movement and management, carefully following formulation recipes to produce the lotions needed further down the supply chain, equipment operation, problem-solving and ownership of a system. In this role you will own overall line/area standards during shifts and find ways to continuously improve. You will be required to clean, operate and maintain equipment to the required standard and precisely follow batch production records with exact record keeping ensuring each batch made is right first time, every time. We are looking for a strong team player who can work collaboratively with teams across an organisation.

You and your team will work together on a rotating shift pattern and will provide a thorough handover to the incoming shift to maintain high standards and a smoothe operation. While we currently operate a 24/5 shift pattern, this can change depending on business needs.
