This company is after Production Operatives to operate the machinery on both Day and Night shifts. Day shifts are 07:00 to 19:00, and Nights are 19:00 to 07:00. Each shift block consists of four consecutive twelve-hour-shifts in a four-on, four-off shift pattern (also known as 'continental shifts'). Day shifts start on £8.21 per hour but go up to £11 per hour after training, and Night shifts start on £9.13 and go up to £12.77 per hour! With over-time being paid up to £13.20, this role is a great way to start a new career, learn new skills and take home some serious money!
