Are you an experienced technician looking for a new challenge?
WMG is a vibrant, cutting-edge research institution at the University of Warwick, providing research, education and knowledge transfer in engineering, manufacturing and technology. We need an engineer with substantial experience of working with machine tools, both manual and CNC, lathes, milling machines and grinders to join our team to provide technical support and engage with staff of all levels including external partners and organisations as required.
The team will benefit from your flexible approach to work and your high level of competence covering a wide range of disciplines including metal fabrication, welding, fitting, pipe work, material sampling and testing.
Excellent communication skills and a high level of health and safety awareness will be essential for the role in order to liaise with academics, students and other staff to set up, run and maintain specialist equipment and provide advice on the feasibility of practical experimental design and manufacture.
You will need to have successfully completed an engineering apprenticeship or HNC/ONC in Engineering or hold a similar qualification, along with relevant experience in a related engineering discipline / environment.
In return we will provide you with a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 26 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
At WMG we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We currently hold the Athena SWAN Silver Award and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognizes the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
