Part Time

Do you want to make a difference?

Join us and the products you assemble and test will help to save lives on a daily basis. How amazing would that be?

Alerter Group plc is a market leading technology company.

We design, manufacture, install & maintain a range of innovative products. These are emergency and/or communication systems to be used in workplaces, Universities/Colleges or hotels for example.

We have a vacancy in our Production Team, based at our Derby Operations Centre, on Pride Park.

You will be assembling, testing & preparing our equipment (mainly electronic & RF equipment), ready for our engineers to install on customer sites.

Do I need to be experienced in this type of job?

Yes, we would like at least 12 months’ experience in an assembly/production role within electronics plus you need to be PC literate with Office and email applications. Electronics/engineering qualifications aren’t required but would be advantageous. We would also prefer that you have a driving licence, or are at least working towards getting one.

What’s in it for you?

Your starting salary will be £15K-£20K depending on experience & qualifications.

We also only work office hours of 8:30-17:00, Monday to Friday (with an hour for lunch) and part time hours/job share may be available for the right candidate.

We also provide a staff pension scheme and a childcare voucher scheme.

What will your working environment be like?

We don’t have a noisy factory with multiple assembly lines where your individual work isn’t noticed. You will be working in a small production team at our Operations Centre on Pride Park, in our newly refurbished electronics workshop.

What’s the company culture like?

We’re a friendly bunch of people who share similar goals. We all want to work hard and achieve something at work, but also make a difference in the World and earn money doing this!

Will my role really make a difference?

YES! We’re still a relatively small company with about 40 members of staff (although hoping to be about 50 by the end of this year). The Managers and Directors really do take an interest in your work and notice when people make that extra bit of effort (there are recognition schemes for this too).

Will I have fun too?

Yes, we like to have fun as a team too. We have staff social events at least 4 times a year (which the company pays for). In the past this has included things like curry nights, ten pin bowling, laser quest, Christmas meals and a fun casino. They aren’t compulsory, but a great chance to socialise with people from all areas of the business.

What are the career prospects for this role?

We would be happy for someone to stay in this role long term. However, this type of role can be the stepping stone to a career in other areas of production, field engineering or electronics design.
