CNC machinist

By January 10, 2023

About the Company

Based in Totnes we’ve been designing and manufacturing multi-cavity plastic injection mould tools for nearly 40 years, servicing the caps & closures, medical, pharmaceutical, packaging and aerospace industries, as well as numerous blue-chip clients.

About the Position

Due to ongoing investment, continued growth and increased demand for our product we’re now looking for experienced CNC machinists to join our team of skilled engineers.

We’re looking for individuals with experience in working to very close tolerances. A good understanding of engineering drawings and being able to work with metric drawings and equipment is desired. Experience with Siemens controls and/or Mazatrol would be advantageous, as would experience with 5 axis CNC machinery but this is not essential as training will be given. You’ll need to be motivated and a team player with the ability to work on your own initiative as well.

You will be working for a long established, stable company with a history of reinvestment in plant and training.

We are passionate about our staff development and you will have the opportunity to share your skills and experience with our trainees, helping the next generation of engineers on their journey.
