Do you have a background of working with components to high precision specifications where quality comes first?

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 Grinder Machinist to join their team on a permanent basis.

The company I'm working with have been supplying precision engineered components to a variety of industries for many years from their purpose built facility just off junction 9 of the M5 motorway in Tewkesbury, commutable from Gloucester, Cheltenham, Worcester and surrounding areas.

They're now in a position to take on a skilled CNC Grinder Setter/Operator to join the team on a permanent basis as the business prepares for a large growth in business over the coming years.

About you

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

Cylindrcal 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 would be an advantage. You will certainly need to be comfortable selecting the correct program, completing machine set up, selecting appropriate grinding tool and inspecting first off 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 and you'll be shown how to use a CMM if you don't already know how.
