Being a plant technician
As a technician, you’ll work on a team responsible for keeping production flowing, meeting performance goals, and maintaining the high level of quality that consumers expect from our products.
Being involved in making P&G products safe, reliable and exceptional in quality is an amazing feeling.
What does it take to join our team?
Our plant operates 24/7 and technicians work 12 hours per day in various shift rotations including a single straight shift to working two rotating shifts. Length of work shifts or the rotation schedule can change occasionally and employees can be required to work additional days in the form of overtime.
Also this can be a physically demanding job so you may need to be able to lift heavy loads, use stairs, ladders and platforms, move freely, enter and work in confined spaces, and stand on concrete floors for an extended period of time.
Brands and Products
Our winning products and leading brands are all about innovation – in many forms, from our technology and tools to our work processes to the change we inspire. No matter your role with us, you’ll be part of something impactful and important that makes a difference.
Production at London Plant started with fairy household soap, with Fairy Liquid starting production in 1937 and Laundry Detergents in 1947. At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic plant technicians stepped-up to meet the increased demand for Fairy Liquid. And they could do this with confidence as P&G puts so much emphasis on their health and safety. Precautions included enforcing strict social-distancing rules on site to keep employees separated at the plant entrance, taking employees' temperatures, and separating employees to prevent departments from mixing and potential spread of the disease.
At London Plant we have been producing laundry detergent for more than 80 years, and Ariel is one of the most important brands we produced at the plant. Our technicians use the latest technologies for the making, packing and shipping of thousands of boxes every day, to the UK and beyond. They play, therefore, a key role in bringing a confident smile on parents’ faces when the dirty clothes of their children reach the washing machine, and they just add Ariel.
We’re located in a state-of-the-art facility, where P&G engineers and plant technicians work together to design and utilize the latest technology to allow our manufacturing plants to produce the highest quality products at optimum production rates.
Innovation of Facility & Machinery
In an ever-evolving world the force of change is unavoidable and tackling this head on is a competitive advantage for P&G. That is why we are constantly looking at applying and developing technology to improve all areas including safety, product quality and sustainability.
Seemingly small changes are amplified onto a massive scale in a 24/7 manufacturing operation and the opportunity to make a difference is huge. To handle the increasing complexity of changes we need talented teams to effectively plan, execute and support the constant marginal improvements in every area of the supply chain.
Importance of Safety
At P&G safety is at the forefront of everything we do and it is also built into the core of the company. Nothing we do is worth getting hurt for, and Health & Safety can and should be managed. The safety culture of a site is very important, and this starts with each individual. We expect those working for us to take safety seriously and play an active part in creating a positive and safe environment for everyone at the plant.
