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 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 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

This position is for a CNC Grinder Setter/Operator (or programmer if you have the skills) but if your experience has been gained working with other, multi-axis CNC machinery, we would be pleased to hear from you as training can be given to help you transfer your skills to the machinery being used.

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.

You will be selecting the correct program, completing machine set up, selecting appropriate tools and inspecting first off components. As you gain in competence with the machinery, 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.

Sounds like you? Take a look at the package on offer...
