In addition you will support with improvement projects and equipment installations as required. The kit in scope includes some robotics, conveying and material handling. We have some specialist pressure casting machines which if you haven't seen them before are very similar to plastic injection moulding machines. We have different types of kiln, both gas and electricity fired. As you can imagine it gets quite warm and can be a bit dusty but for engineers that love engineering this is a great place to be based upon the amount of and variation of machinery and equipment for you to work on.

Applicants at the top of he matrix get a £40k base (you would have to be truly multi skilled with good PLC skills ideally in Siemens S7). Where applicants are identified to have a gap in skills for example you are not too hot on hydraulics or maybe robot programming we will offer a salary within our matrix reflective of your skills and put in place a training plan with a view to getting you to £40k. We also offer regular overtime for the delivery of projects and gap filling paid at over time rates making £45k annually at the top of the matrix very realistic.

In summary, we are offering a solid engineering opportunity with an attractive salary and a very honest and open approach to reward for your commitment and hard work. This is all supported and underpinned by the business having a history spanning over 200 years.
