£13 per hour
Description: Experienced Injection Moulding Setter required for our niche sector manufacturing specialist.Our client originated more than half a century ago and are recognised as a market leader in the niche electroplating sector for supply to a diverse range of clients and industry sectors throughout the UK.
As a result of continued success and an ongoing programme of strategic growth, they are now seeking to recruit an experienced and enthusiastic Injection Moulding Setter to complement their established and highly professional manufacturing team.
Working on a 2pm to 10pm shift basis within an IATF 16949:2016, ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 accredited environment, the mould shop consists of 7 Negri Bossi machines ranging from 55T to 500T including twin shot capability, processing predominantly ABS and PC-ABS (Natural and self-coloured) although other materials are used infrequently, and the successful candidate will be responsible for all aspects of the shift and personnel, undertaking tool changes and setting of machines for production in line with appropriate quality standards.
You will also be responsible for ensuring that machines are operating in line with product costings - and where deviations occur, being able to challenge and process the part to achieve desired outcome, and for ensuring the safe operating practice on all machines and ancillary equipment within the mould shop at all times.
To be considered for this varied and challenging opportunity you will demonstrate comprehensive knowledge and experience of injection moulding with chroming and painting experience proving distinctly advantageous to the position, along with material knowledge and processing requirements, and will be able to work both autonomously and as part of a team within an often-pressurised environment.
Excellent communication skills at all levels and proven man-management and motivational skills are essential for the position in order to both drive and improve both team and production performance.
