Job Description

What makes this position a potential positive career step?
  • The Chemical Process Engineer / Plant Engineer will have a big impact in a well-established  plant where the Site Manager values world class manufacturing, modern maintenance methods, and continuous improvement.
  • There is an annual capital budget  to achieve results.  It’s always more fun to work at a site  where the company is investing on improvements rather than sites focused exclusively on short term costs.
  • Our client is a multi-site chemical manufacturing company with a solid EHS program. Career paths are plentiful for a ChE. We anticipate stability for those who hope to settle in a great Southern location. But, for those who hope to be on a management track, I’m familiar with situations where they have promoted to other sites.
  • This position will be a resume builder or a Process Engineer who is  currently specialized in only a portion of the planned work.
Location:
Located northwest of Atlanta GA:  A small town right in the middle of the A-B-C triangle; about 60 miles Northwest of Atlanta, 100 miles from Birmingham AL, 90 miles from Chattanooga TN.   (Data from bestplaces.net)
  • Low cost of living in this Historical Town (Nat’l Register of Historical Places) such that your Engineering salary will go a long way!   COL index = 80 to 85 depending on your chosen neighborhood (US Average is 100)
  • Beautiful area with great weather reported at about 215 sunny days per year!  Plenty of outdoor activities with local mountains / rivers/ lakes and great access to the Silver Comet Trail.
  • One review simply said, “Small town living with low crime rate” but in my research I’ve also noted plenty of local shopping, dining, and cultural activities. This is not an “isolated-area” like near Macon GA to the south of Atlanta.   (When we talk please ask for my full report on the area.)
 
Work Description:
Reporting to the Plant Manager, this Plant Process Engineer will provide a diversity of plant support in a mid-sized chemical manufacturing plant.  
As a well-rounded Plant Process Engineer you’ll become a jack-of-all-trades in a batch chemical manufacturing plant, supporting all process activities.   You'll work side-by-side with the Plant Operators solving problems and you’ll partner with the Maintenance Manager and the Reliability Engineer on progressing capital projects.  Eventually, you'll be in a position to both suggest and complete projects for ongoing improvements.

  • Plant trouble shooting assistance
  • Yield studies and proceed optimization  
  • PSM support with PHA reviews
  • Small capital projects with initial  budgeting through design and construction support
  • Start-up support for  new products introduction to the plant (from R&D)
  • Assist with operator training and writing  SOPs as needed
  • Assist with the promotion of the safe work culture and participate in root cause analysis

Applicant profile:

Footnotes:
  • I have shared a ball-park salary estimate to give people an idea of the career level. Many factors will influence the eventual offer, including your experience level and our client’s internal salary equity. This position is open to a very wide range of talent from 5 to 25 or more years of experience so it is difficult to be exact at this point. Obviously applicants at the low end of the experience range won't command the maximum salary.
