We are looking for someone to begin working for a marine engineering company in Havant that enjoys a great reputation for employee satisfaction and an enviable local reputation for outstanding quality products, who are looking for an experienced Machine Operator/Metal Bender to join the engineering team on a choice of shift patterns (all full-time hours).

You will need to have a good working knowledge of various machines (setting and operating) and be confident in your abilities to use Bending machines efficiently and accurately as well as be able to edit when necessary. The two main bending machines in use are the Eurobend and the Arkus 12, although any additional machine knowledge will be highly beneficial.

Of course, being a bending machinist, you will be able to work to mechanical drawings, and being able to quality-check your own working using various hand measuring tools would be highly advantageous, as you will be producing interesting products on your new machines for the Marine industry. Working to these tight tolerances will improve both the accuracy and quality of your work. Even if you feel that you don't quite have the skills, do get in touch. This company is renowned for investing in and training their staff, so it could be the lucky break you're after to develop fitting/fabricating skills into niche machining ability.
