Strong mechanical abilities including machining – lathes/turning/milling/drilling
Must have excellent customer service/facing skills

Benefits

As the client base grows, the Service team grows alongside. After initial 3 months onsite training on the clients special purpose machinery, there will be on-going inhouse and external training available. Long-term opportunities will include the potential to become a senior within the Service team or even Service Manager as the team grows further.
