To improve operational efficiency and help shape Symeta Hybrid's growth ambitions we are looking for a Head of Technical Services, for the Heverlee and Sint-Pieters-Leeuw site.


As the person with final responsibility for technical services, you and your team of 10 employees take care of the entire scope of technical management: purchasing, projects, contracts, preventive and curative maintenance, reporting, budget, processes, systems and this across the 2 sites. In doing so, you can call on the many years of expertise of the Colruyt Group and make your own choices in the further development of the business.

In this challenging technical environment from pure mechanics to HoloLens, you will use your experience and management skills to ensure a best in class Total Productive Maintenance level based on Industry 4.0 technology.


You preferably have a Master's degree in industrial engineering.

You can count on relevant technical experience of more than 5 years and at least 3 years in a managerial position.

You work systematically on improvement in all aspects. You naturally maintain a good balance between the necessary flexibility and structure. You achieve your objectives in a planned way and you ensure support and ownership.

With your connecting communication skills, you manage to get people to work together. You communicate just as fluently with clients, partners, experts and management.

You are able to express yourself fluently in Dutch, English and French.


If variety is important, then this is the place for you. From data analyses to optimizing the maintenance of mechanical parts. From purchasing ball bearings to solving PLC problems via HoloLens on automated digital printing presses of 244 m/min.

Expect technical and human challenges. A job with a lot of variety and technical challenges awaits you, in which you get a lot of freedom but are also part of a close and driven team.
