You will be an integral part of our small, enthusiastic team in our busy, growing business, with customers based all over the world.

It’s important that you can think clearly to get to the root of a problem. Imaginative solutions are sometimes required; to repair or adapt a part to make it work.

We’ll teach you how to be commercially aware and understand the cost for customers and the profit for the business.

  • Applying mechanical principles.
  • An understanding of how to use, service and maintain tools and equipment.
