Job Description

Are you an experienced mechanical fitter with experience of large scale assembly?
Are you able to work from engineering drawings and react quickly to design changes?
Can you operate hand and power tools?
Have you worked on vehicle assembly, ideally for tracked vehicles, yellow goods, and construction vehicles?

This role is offered on a permanent basis with a salary of £26000 to £27500

To be successful, you will need:
A comprehensive range of assembly and fitting skills with previous experience in similar roles.
The ability to interpret drawings and work from written instructions with limited supervision.
The ability to use hand tools and measuring equipment with high accuracy.
Either a recognised apprenticeship in mechanical assembly or equivalent or through work experience gained on the job

The role will best suit candidates with varied and high level hands-on assembly/fitting experience who can pick up a variety of technical tasks and complete them to a high standard. This is not production line work.
As the builds are also still going through some developmental you will need a good understanding of engineering drawings and technical annotation so that you can react to minor design changes easily, and even offer solutions if assembly issues are encountered.

You will be capable of electrical and mechanical assembly and the integration of complex systems, working from drawings and engineering instruction.
You will be competent in the safe use of all hand and air tools, and hand and mag drill techniques.
You will be experienced in the use of Jigs, fixtures and measuring tools on precision assemblies.
