Temps Recruitment, are currently recruiting for a Maintenance Fitter role.
To work with our very respectable and well established Client based in Fento.
This requires the candidate to have an engineering qualification in a Mechanical discipline.
That may be Maintenance or Bench Fitting as primary skills, a machinists (Lathe, Milling, Surface Grinding) may possess a similar combination of skills.
The role is primarily machine set-up, that is, changing production machine settings between orders to manufacture different product shapes and sizes.
Machine set-up (change-over) involves partially dismantling an extruder to clear material out before the new material is extruded, then changing dies to achieve the correct shape and then dismantling the cutter system in order to make the new sizes,
Once the machine is producing the correct material to satisfactory tolerances, the Fitter hands the machine back to production.
The production operator may call Engineering to re-set a cutter part way through an order as our product is continually wearing equipment away and performance deteriorates, so "adjustments" are continually necessary.
This accounts for 80% of the work.
The other 20% is ad-hoc machinery breakdown maintenance.
The candidate must be prepared to work in a fast moving production environment where machine production time is paramount.
Individual skills are being honed continually as experience is gained in this unique environment, there are no other companies operating within the UK who produce these products, therefore, previous experience is impossible to find, we look for te right candidate and train them.
This production environment does not suit all people, the Fitter cannot "camp out" on a job or takes part to a workbench to apply a perfected engineering solution, production is paramount.

If you think you are the right candidate for this role, then please don't hesitate to contact us on the details below.
