Do you want to work for a market leader in the plastic packaging and chemical industry? Would a shift pattern suit your home life? Due to growth we are recruiting a Machine Controller for the dye shop of a global manufacturing company based in Bletchley. Working continental shifts (4 x  12 hour day shifts 6-6, and 4 x 12 hour night shifts 6-6 with 4 days off in between each block) on a salary of £33,236 plus annual bonus (6% of salary), summer and Christmas shut down, and a generous pension scheme (up to 12% employer contribution).
As Machine Controller, reporting to the Operations Shift Leader, you will be responsible for operating weighing, mixing and ancillary equipment preparing and supplying all required additive premix blends for the production process. You will report any breakdowns or malfunctions efficiently to avoid downtime, and control the mixing, melting, extruding, cooling,  and drying machinery, as well as assisting in packaging the final product ready for quality control and dispatch.
We are very keen to hear from applicants who have worked in a manufacturing/ packaging environment previously with experience in operating similar plant and production machinery. Any knowledge of the plastics or chemical industry would be advantageous; however training can be provided. A Reach FLT License would be advantageous but not essential.
