Lab Manufacturing Technician (26740)

Cambridge (south)
£25k to £35k plus benefits

High-tech manufacturing of precision devices

Help a high-tech device company ramp up their production. As a Manufacturing Technician you’ll apply your knowledge of high-tech manufacturing equipment to calibrate, maintain, upgrade and commission new machinery. You’ll be part of a skilled, focused team operating in a laboratory (rather than shop floor) environment.

Your CV will show your:

  • Qualifications in Manufacturing or Engineering, for instance an NVQ level 3, A-levels or equivalent.
  • Demonstrable expertise maintaining, or building, equipment for semi-automated manufacture of small scale devices, rather than large industrial plant machinery. This will include computer-controlled, pneumatic and/or electrically actuated machines for precision use.
  • Confidence taking a “hands on” approach, using hand tools, disassembling and reassembling working machines with precision mechanical and electronic components.
  • Basic metalworking skills for wear-and-tear maintenance (mark and cut, threading, filing, joining, welds).
  • Computer literacy including use of Microsoft Office and similar programs, for instance for project management and reporting.
  • Motivation, resourcefulness, and good collaboration and communication skills.

Any additional experience with electrical, electronic or optical equipment, robotic arms and/or computer vision systems is welcome. Stock control, purchase order and ERP experience is also helpful.

This is a permanent, full time role based in a laboratory environment on green campus-style grounds close to Cambridge. The role comes with a competitive salary, with benefits, including healthcare, bonuses and free lunches. The company is family-friendly and offers enhanced maternity and paternity leave.
