Are you a conscientious person with experience of setting and operating machinery?

Do you have experience of working in a factory environment where the manufacturing process might be continuous and repetitive but a careful eye for detail regarding quality is important?

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 Machine Operator / Minder to join their team on a permanent basis.

The company I'm working with have been supplying precision engineered components to aerospace, medical and general industry 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 Machine Operator / Machine Minder to join the team on a permanent basis as the business prepares for a large growth in business over the next five years.

About you

Experience of operating machinery in a factory or manufacturing environment is a must for this position. Experience of setting up machinery for production isn't essential, but would certainly be an advantage.

You'll be working at a machine which cuts out metal components for use in aerospace, medical and general industry. You'll be working on high quality, high volume, specialist components.

Your careful eye for detail and ability to concentrate will be important as you'll be working with machinery which operates in repetitive cycles to produce products in medium to high volumes.

You'll be carrying out basic visual inspections throughout the manufacturing process, checking items for quality and conformity so you'll need to be familiar with keeping a careful eye out for defects in order to highlight any problems to the quality department or your line Manager.
