On a daily basis you'll be producing and building a range of mechanical scientific instrumentation. The work is extremely varied and you will be dealing with mechanical assembly, leak testing, hard & soft soldering, brazing and light welding.

About you:

The successful Mechanical Assembly Technician will be a time served skilled instrument maker or you'll have a similar mechanical engineering background.
