A CNC Turner Programmer Setter Operator (lathe turner) vacancy has become available to work for a sub-contract precision engineering company who specialise in producing the highest quality components for the aerospace industry.

Located in brand new premises, just off the M5 motorway in Tewkesbury, on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds region and commutable from Gloucester, Cheltenham, Worcester and surrounding areas.

This is a permanent job working night shifts, 40 hours per week, Monday to Thursday. There is a great deal of overtime available right now too with flexible working either side of core working hours.

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 yet professional culture is ready to welcome a conscientious person who wants to join a small team of skilled engineers.
