The role will be quite different to anything that most people have done before, and so if you are looking for a change then this could be a perfect move.

The successful Production Technician will be responsible for the following:

  • The set-up of various stages in both an automatic and a semi-automatic assembly cell
  • Dealing with any problems that arise, whether they are with the setting of the machine and quality of output, machine breakdowns, or anything in between.
  • Setting of 2 small plastic injection machines, milling, drilling and tapping machines, and bespoke/niche industry specific machinery to include bowl fed machines for the cutting of components.
The successful Production Technician will have the following skills and experience:
  • Ideally have some experience of milling, drilling and tapping.
  • You might have knowledge and experience of plastic injection moulding.
  • You may well have machine maintenance or toolmaking experience. 
  • You could have problem solving methodology training, coupled with practical experience of fixing the faults you find with machines.
Our client is part of a multinational manufacturing group, and this position is based at their site in Wednesbury, in the heart of the Black Country. With a hard-working but easy-going and friendly team, they are looking to expand the team with the appointment of this key role.
You will receive a salary based on an hourly rate of circa £13-£14 per hour, and you will work Monday to Thursday 7.30 – 4, and 7.30 – 1 on a Friday.  There is the opportunity for overtime, including Saturdays.
