A little known secret of the Gloucestershire engineering community, hidden in plain sight amongst a small community of other specialist engineering firms, this expert precision engineering company in Cheltenham is looking to hire a Quality Inspector on a permanent basis. Could you be our newest employee?

You won’t have heard of us because we don't often advertise jobs but you'll have heard of many of our clients and the precision components (that only we can make we make by the way!) will almost certainly have touched your life in some way, either directly or indirectly.

We’re now in a position to take on another Quality Inspector to join the team as a well respected member of the team looks to move away from the area. He’ll be missed but we’re looking to welcome our newest employee to the team (and not just because we need someone to take his place on the tea rota, honest!)

+ Well organised and well-equipped shop floor
+ A mix of brand new, state of the art CNC lathes and some lovely old, well maintained conventional/manual lathes, grinders, drills and mills.
+ Easy access to all the tooling and equipment you need to do your best work
+ Encouraging technical assistance always available
+ Checking the quality of very high specification components which eventually end up with some of the biggest brands in the world
Long term job security, working for a company creating products for sustainable and eco-friendly industries, aerospace and specialist enterprises

What experience will you need?
You’ll be an experienced Quality Inspector, comfortable completing first offs and in-process inspections, carrying out first article and  final inspections against drawings.
You’ll probably have more than three years’ experience in aerospace, medical, motorsport or similar (we work with small parts) but if you have the skills already with less time on the job (perhaps you’re a CNC Machinist just beginning to move into inspection for example), then we would welcome your application too.
As an experienced Quality Inspector you’ll know this already but to be clear, you’ll be confident in using a range of precision inspection tools to check dimensions of machined components to include a Shadowgraph Projector (or you might know this as an Optical Comparator or similar), gauges, micrometers, vernier calipers, microscopes. It would be great if you have experience of using a CMM but you’ll be trained up to use this if you haven’t. I’m afraid that you’ll also be involved in the paperwork side of the job too, some of our work is completed under A9100 standards so there's a fair bit to do – I’m sure you love it really!

Job title: Quality Inspector
Location: Cheltenham, commutable from Tewkesbury, Worcester, Evesham, Bishops Cleeve, Winchcombe, Gloucester, Stroud, Stonehouse and surrounding areas.
Working hours: 38 hour working week, day shift, finishing at lunch time on Fridays, overtime readily available.
Pay rate: we're looking to pay a salary of around £28,000 - £30,000 but please do get in touch to talk about your requirements, we'll be happy to discuss your circumstances.
Contract type: permanent

What’s in it for you?
What we can offer you is a permanent job from day one.
We can offer you true long term job security, working with well maintained equipment working alongside skilled and experienced Machinists who have been with the company for years.
The newest member of our team explains that he received the warmest of welcomes, joining a team of experienced engineers making some fine quality components so you’ll be joining a company who value your skills and the contribution you’re making.
Along with a warm welcome, we can offer you 25 days’ holiday, a Christmas shut down plus all bank holidays paid, extra time off for appointments and a lunch time finish every Friday.
We can offer overtime at an enhanced rate, life cover twice your salary at no cost to you, a small Christmas bonus, pension contributions, lots of free parking, free tea and coffee…
