Electronics Production Engineer
It’s a great time to be joining us as we continue to develop and deliver new and exciting solutions for the defence and maritime sectors, resulting in continued growth year-on-year!
Located in Gosport, we are now looking to expand our team and enhance our current production capabilities by bringing on board a Production Engineer, with specialist skills in ‘electronics’.
Bringing with you a strong manufacturing and assembly background, from a low to medium volume environment, the role of the Production Engineer will be to ensure that our ‘Box Build’, ‘Cable Harness’ and ‘PCB’ manufacturing activities run smoothly and efficiently. You certainly will not be someone who settles for ‘mediocre’- you’ll strive for the highest quality at all times as well as possessing uncompromising attention to detail. We’ll also be looking to you to identify continuous improvement opportunities and driving these through to fruition.
It set to be a busy, yet varied role, and will suit someone who prides themselves on their ability to take a flexible and adaptable approach to their day-to-day operations. It is also rare opportunity where you can comfortably develop your existing skill set whilst learning new skills on the job too, and with an excellent training and development programme in place, you’re sure to excel in the role!
