I'm offering a rare opportunity to work with a precision engineering firm who supply top quality products to some of the most prestigious companies in the oil, gas, aerospace and nuclear industries. Based just off junction 9 of the M5 motorway, commutable from Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Malvern, Worcester and surrounding areas.

Working with me to support their recruitment plans for CNC Machining, my client and I are looking to find just the right people to join the business at a very exciting time when more investment is planned within the year to cope with a very healthy order book (commercial and government-backed contracts).

The job - CNC Milling Machine Setter / Operator

Do you have experience of setting and operating CNC mills?

Then I'm interested in hearing from you.

Experience of CNC programming from scratch isn't essential for this role, but I am looking for Machinists who would be confident in making minor offset adjustments.

The work you will be doing ranges from small to medium batch sizes and you will need to be confident with working to engineering drawings to produce components in a range of materials to a high specification. You will need to be familiar with using standard measuring equipment such as verniers, micrometers and depth gauges with minimal supervision too.

The machines you'll be using are 3 & 5 axis vertical machining centres. If you have experience of working with CNC milling machinery with two or three axis using Fanuc, Mazatrol, Heidenhain, Fadal, Siemens or similar controls, I'd be pleased to hear from you too, you may well be just the person we're looking for!

The hours (night shift)

Monday - Thursday 8:00pm - 6:00am (four nights per week)

*Lots of overtime regularly available*

A few of the benefits

  • Permanent contract, starting rate of between £15.95 and £18.60 per hour;
  • company pension scheme;
  • life cover;
  • clean, well organised facilities;
  • well maintained machines;
  • a friendly, welcoming team atmosphere and very knowledgeable and supportive management style;
  • long term order book with established government-backed contracts;
  • investment in brand new machines;
