About this Apprenticeship

We are a specialist manufacturer of complex high end technical products based near Luton, Bedfordshire. We are currently seeking an experienced CNC Milling Machinist with setting, operating and ideally programming skills and experience to join our workshop team on a double-day shift pattern.

We offer a salary of £35k (including shift allowance) plus a generous benefits package, paid overtime will be available, and funded training.

The role will involve the manufacture of components and sub-assemblies from engineering drawings using CNC milling machines (focused on a Doosan 5 axis horizontal CNC machining centre: DOOSAN DBC 130 Mark II with a Fanuc Series 31 I - Model B control unit), so an ability to interpret drawings and specifications as well as previous experience of programming (ideally Fanuc) are all key. The majority of the work will be one-offs and small batch volumes. Components range in size and complexity from micro components up to large multi-part fabrications. You will also be required to manufacture and modify tooling such as jigs and moulds.

We are looking for motivated Engineers who are comfortable working to high tolerances, have strong problem solving skills, and are able to offer ideas for improvements for both parts and manufacturing processes.

We welcome applications from candidates who have completed a recognised engineering apprenticeship or equivalent qualifications. Good communication skills are important for working within the team environment and understanding safety procedures, as are time management skills. We are flexible on the industry sector from which the successful candidate will come from so long as they are able to demonstrate the skills and experience required for this position.

Applicants may be currently or previously working as a CNC Machinist, Setter/Operator, CNC Programmer, CNC Miller, Machine Operator, tool maker, tooling engineer, manual machinist with CNC background, mechanical fitter, or recently completed a manufacturing apprenticeship.

The double-day shift pattern alternates every week, so Week 1 Early shift: Mon-Thu: 06.00 - 14.00, Fri: 06.00 - 13.30, Week 2 Late shift: Mon-Thu: 14.00 - 22.00, Fri: 13.30 -21.00.
