Then please do read on, you might be just who we're looking for...

I've been appointed by a local precision engineering company to support their search for a skilled CNC Grinder Setter/Operator or Programmer Setter Operator to join their team on a permanent basis.

This is a permanent role working day shifts, 39 hours per week. There is a great deal of overtime available too with flexible working either side of core working hours.

Starting pay rate negotiable depending on your experience and your pay rate will be reviewed every year, pay rises are achievable with time served and machine competence.

The company have been trading for many years and they have recently opened a brand new purpose built facility in Tewkesbury.

Established initially to supply their core customer base in aerospace, the Tewkesbury operation is now in a position to hire an additional machinist to support the company's move into a planned phase of supporting new customers. Machines have already been purchased and we're looking for the right person with an innovative and conscientious approach to working and a passion for high quality engineering to join the friendly team.

Working in bright, clean premises with brand new machinery and the latest equipment, the operation has to be seen to be believed - if you're used to cramped, dark working conditions which haven't seen investment in years, you'll be very impressed with the look and feel of this company's facilities.

A friendly and relaxed culture is ready to welcome a conscientious person who wants to join a small team of skilled engineers.

About you

Experience of setting and operating CNC grinding machines is a must for this position.

Multi-axis Cylindrical grinding, internal and external and/or Centreless surface grinding.

You'll be working on technically complex components, working to tight tolerances. You'll be working on a mixture of high precision, high value, low volume specialist components made to customer order and some small to medium batch precision components too.

Experience of programming CNC grinders from scratch isn't essential for this role but if you have programmed CNC Grinding machine tools before, we would be happy to hear from you too. You will certainly need to be comfortable selecting the correct program, completing machine set up, selecting appropriate grinding tool and carrying out in-process inspection of components. This job will see you making tooling adjustments and making minor offset changes to programs as needed.

You'll be checking your work against drawings throughout the grinding process too, so you'll need to be familiar with using standard measuring equipment such as verniers, micrometers and gauges with minimal supervision.
