- Assembled the finished machines from drawings

Ideally you will be qualified to at least HND/C&G in a related engineering discipline, or have completed a time-served Mechanical apprenticeship as part of your training. A background in machinery build and assembly is essential, as you will be working in smalls teams and allocated tasks to complete as part of the wider build. Day to day, you will require knowledge of:

- Mechanical hand fitting
- Bearings and shaft fitting
- Marking out, tapping, drilling and of light/medium metals
- Pneumatic and hydraulic assembly
