An opportunity exists for a Reliability Specialist to further improve the reliability of our mill. The initial priority for this role will be the co-ordination of an RCM process and a PM Optimization program for our assets. Other responsibilities will include the on-going analysis of equipment and operational issues and the implementation of reliability improvements, utilizing our CMMS to identify and correct trends in equipment performance and cost, managing the RCFA program and advising on and promoting precision maintenance techniques. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of collaboration with Operations, Supervisors and Tradesmen to achieve outstanding results. He or she will have an Engineering Degree or Technical qualifications and three or more years in a heavy industry setting. He or she will have solid knowledge of world-class maintenance and reliability practices, including predictive and preventative maintenance, TPM, FMEA and condition-based maintenance. Experience in pulp and paper is a great asset, but a demonstrated history of leadership and improvements in an industrial setting is crucial.
