At MRW we have an opportunity for a new person to join our production team assisting with all aspects of manufacturing from basic component manufacture up to our most complex assembly and products.The role is 3-5 days and we have some flexibility around working hours/days. We manufacture all of our products in the UK and joining the team is an opportunity to be directly involved with existing product manufacturing but also new product development. One of the most interesting aspects of this role is the ability to be involved with process/tooling development as we continue to improve and refine the manufacturing processes involved with our product range. Any applicant should have a keen eye for detail and appreciation of engineering/design. We are looking for proactive people who take the initiative without prompt. MRW is a small team of just 5 people making products for the UK and Global export. We make unique products that have been completely designed and developed in house, but also take on other peoples designs to add to our range. Developing designs ready for manufacture is a key part of this role. With the current economic challenges faced by UK manufacturers we are looking to improve efficiency and output of our products and you will be expected to aid in development of new systems and processes to assist our existing production team. A high level of computer skill is required with this role as we move to a paper-”less” production process and implement more efficient production management. We use an inhouse stock management system and training will be provided but knowledge and experience of using such software will be beneficial. Practically, we use welding and other steel fabrication methods on a daily basis. Again training can be provided (all of the current team have been in-house trained) but again background knowledge/experience is desired. We have people of all ages working for MRW and have an open attitude to all types of people joining the team. The work is physical and requires good health and you must be comfortable with a role involving manual labor and able to pass a medical for Safety-Critical Work This is an important, safety-critical role within our organisation.
