Full Time
Our client are a large engineering firm who are looking to recruit a time served cnc machinist to join the team to train the firms apprentices in a special training environment.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate experience in training apprentices.

Candidates must come from a Milling or turning background.

The Firms philosophy is to provide apprentices with the best and most effective training and as such, employ a dedicated Apprentice Cell Trainer (ACT). Reporting to the Apprentice Training Manager, the ACT ensures assigned apprentices receive instruction and development to learn and understand engineering practice and plant process, engineering drawing, measurement equipment use and quality control, working effectively and in a safe manner. Possessing good manufacturing knowledge and demonstrating a wide range of engineering skills the ACT must possess the ability to pass on “knowledge” in a consistent and effective training manner.

The Role
The ACT will work with the Apprentice Training Manager (ATM) to develop (individual) training plans and systems in order to provide the expected level of training and development for assigned apprentices.

The main tasks of the role are outlined below:
• Take responsibility for day-to-day engineering/manufacturing training of assigned apprentices, including safe working practice and performance monitoring.
• Select, choose and assign appropriate production activities suitable for each apprentice and their personal development needs. Importantly, ensuring production requirements are not jepardised through this choice.
• Methodically, attentively and deliberately assist assigned apprentices to understand, learn and develop manufacturing and working policies, procedures and standards.
• Ensure apprentices work efficienctly, effectively and safely – It’s about doing the job “right first time, all the time”.
• Monitor individual apprentice performance and provide feedback to the ATM, ensuring training meets development requirements in line with both the apprenticeship framework and Company expectations. When training and developing apprentices within the training cell, the ACT will:
• Ensure apprentices are shown all general and specific manufacturing methods to meet with the NVQ qualification and expectations within the apprenticeship standards.
• Highlight the work centres to be worked upon, fully explain their use inclusive of messaging systems and login procedures.
• Demonstrate engineering practice, correct manufacturing method and good process control necessary to develop the apprentice ‘skill’ to manufacture ‘the job’ right first time. This is inclusive of highlighting any necessary work holding, tooling and safety requirement.
• Discuss and demonstrate appropriate use of standard operating procedures, including quality documentation and job instructions.
• Explain and demonstrate employee responsibility to inspection levels and in-process inspection controls - check apprentice understanding on inspection equipment use.
• Ensure that the ATM is kept informed on apprentice progress and always report where an apprentice could possibly fall short of expectations.

Candidates must be time served and preferably have a HNC/HND in mechanical engineering.

The role is on days and is paying around £14.15.
