This facility produces mechanical and electrical modules that range in size from small electrical components through to complex, packaged and fully operational plant rooms. The purpose built manufacturing facility delivers innovative and value engineered solutions to clients across a broad range of industry sectors, allowing for a highly sustainable work load.

Reporting to the Team Leader the successful candidates will carry out mechanical and electrical assembly works as required.

The key responsibilities will include but not be limited to;

All team members will be given the opportunity for continued professional development with a huge amount of training on offer.

Working Hours:

Successful applicants will need to have previous experience in a production/ assembly role and will have the ability to interpret specifications and engineering drawings. Whilst full training will be provided, any experience in using hand and machine tools will be a distinct advantage.
