Generally, this will involve the erection of new machinery which, because of the unique nature of their product range, must be conceived, designed, manufactured and installed in house. Working closely with other teams in the business such as the maintenance team you will be used to drawing on different peoples knowledge and working together to build a machine that goes above and beyond the brief. Often the machinery created within this team outlives the designer so you will be able to clearly demonstrate a passion for the work you do and understand building for the long-term future rather than an immediate fix.
You will be expected to work side by side with an apprentice and so team working and mentoring responsibilities will be present.
