Lathe Turner Setter / Operator needed (day shift)

Reason for new vacancy: company expansion due to growing order book

I'm offering a rare opportunity to work with a hidden gem of a precision engineering firm based in the beautiful Cotswold countryside, commutable from Stroud, Gloucester, North Bristol and surrounding areas.

Working exclusively with me to support their recruitment plans, my client is taking delivery of a brand new CNC lathe and I'm looking to find just the right person 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.

The job - CNC Milling Machine Setter / Operator

Do you have experience of setting and operating CNC lathes?

Then I'm interested in hearing from you.

Most of the work you'll be carrying out is machining stainless steel and similar but if you have experience of working with other metals, I would welcome your interest too.

Experience of programming from scratch isn't needed, but I am looking for someone who would be confident in program selection, full machine set up, program prove out and first off creation, tool selection, tool adjustments and changes, making minor offset adjustments to programs as needed and checking work against drawings throughout the machining process, along with additional duties as required by the business.

The work you will be doing ranges from small to medium batch sizes. 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 2 axis lathes. If you have experience of working with any CNC turning machinery using Fanuc, Mazatrol, Heidenhain, Fadal, Siemens or similar controls, you may well be just the person we're looking for!

The hours (day shift)

Monday - Friday 08:00 - 4:30pm, Monday to Friday

Overtime regularly available

A few of the benefits

  • Permanent contract, starting rate of £13.00 per hour, rising to £14.00 per hour after probation with real prospect of increased earnings with length of service;
  • Company pension scheme;
  • 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 specialist contracts;
  • investment in brand new machines and
  • free on-site parking in addition to other benefits.
