  • undertaking relevant research for parts and updated software

  • customer relationship skills
  • and of course how to make the perfect cup of coffee

During your time at Espresso Service, on the job training is seen as important to us, and getting the coffee machine engineer as knowledgeable as possible. Training on the new equipment is one of the most important things for our engineers, if they are skilled at using the equipment then they are able to undergo the maintenance on them. The Senior Engineering team carry out the training sessions as they know the coffee machines in detail and can pass on the information to the rest of the engineering team. You will also get health and safety training because of the severity of some of the tasks you will need to do e.g.) The Mandatory Boiler Inspection.
