  • Servicing pre-installed equipment
  • Reading from simple Engineering drawings
  • Helping to load and unload deliveries using the counterbalance fork lift
  • As required dealing with customers enquiries
  • Maintaining your working area keeping it tidy and organised at all times

As this role is working within a small team, we require a candidate who is happy to muck in and help when the pressure is on to meet a deadline and have a flexible and adaptable approach to working in a team. Other Skills and attributes required are:

  • Relevant experience of qualification within Engineering
  • Excellent at accurately calculating measurements
