Summary: I love Wikipedia's definition of Engineering:
Engineering is the application of mathematics, science, economics, and social and practical knowledge to invent, innovate, design, build, maintain, research, and improve structures, machines, tools, systems, components, materials, processes, solutions, and organizations.
In North Bedfordshire, a leading component manufacturer who are part of a larger group are now seeking an apprentice trained CNC Setter/Operator - This is a brand new role through expansion and they are open to experience with Milling or Turning, although previous knowledge of Lathes is preferred.
Because they are part of a larger group, they can provide you with variety, job security, support and training in your career. This organisation has gone through a major upgrade to their facility financially to make the working environment more modern with newer machines etc; which should only enhance your employee satisfaction.
Materials used to machine parts will be Aluminium, Cast Iron and Mild Steel and the organisation would prefer CNC Setters who are familiar with Fanuc or Haas controls, even though you are not expected to be able to program yourself, just load parts and change tooling.
In busy periods you may be expected to vary your working hours to accommodate a double day shift. Additional hours worked over your basic hours is paid at 1.5.
