Do you have Model making, tool making or CNC machining skills, and strong attention to detail? Working with bespoke customer designs in low volume & one offs to create unique models.

Working as part of a Design & Manufacturing team, the Model Maker is responsible for producing high-value 1-off model components to quality, time and budget, in accordance with Project Manufacturing tolerances and schedules. Responsibilities will include but not be limited to CNC work, hand working surfaces to remove machine marks, blending component joint lines to remove steps/gaps, fitting precision components, installing pressure tubing and assembling models.

  • Ensure that the minimum direct booking requirement is achieved using correct project booking codes for work completed
  • If handover of the work is required, ensure this it is carried out effectively and that adequate notes and technical advice are available

To apply for this Model Maker role, you will need a solid understanding (at least foundation level) of Model Manufacturing Centre skills such as EDM wiring and plunge, turning, jig boring, grinding, CNC machining and hand working. You will also require the following:

  • Experience in the effective and efficient bench fitting of components, sub-assemblies and assemblies
  • Proficient and experienced Model Maker (preferably)
  • Experience in tightly toleranced bespoke component manufacture
  • A team player, confident and capable of mentoring and coaching less experienced staff

In return for your passion and commitment, you'll receive an attractive salary and benefits package, joining a friendly and inclusive culture.
