Mechanical Assembly / Fitter
DraperTech is growing, and to support that growth we’re looking to hire two Mechanical Assembly / Fitters to join our teams based in Shropshire and Lincolnshire respectively.
Who are we?
DraperTech is the installation and customer support arm of the wider DraperVent group. DraperVent provide an innovative ‘one stop shop’ for computerised climate control and flock management systems for commercial poultry housing. One of only a handful of businesses in the UK pioneering this technology and growing extensively, the future is bright for the growth of the business.
What you’ll be doing.
Bringing our equipment to life in our customers premises. You’ll be assembling and installing the feeders and drinkers, working from basic drawings and using standard power tools. The work is both dextrous with regards to the assembly and manual with regards to the installation – there’s a fair bit of heavy lifting involved.
You will be working alone for most of the day – so someone comfortable with autonomy will thrive. But by the same token you can’t be afraid to pick up the phone and speak to your supervisor if you need a bit of advice.
Who you’ll be?
Let’s be frank. Any role involving manual labour is going to be physically demanding and this role is no different. Although we do have standard working hours, our customer is at the core of the work – and we work until the job is finished, so a flexible attitude is essential.
You’ll know your way around standard power tools, and probably own your own set of hand tools.
We also need someone happy to travel extensively, and comfortable with regular overnight stays during the week if the job is away from home.
You’ll also need a full driving license to be considered for the role.
What’s in it for you.
The best part about this role is the autonomy it provides you with. If you are the type of person who enjoys consistent and familiar work in an environment that allows you to ‘just get on with it’ then this could be the opportunity for you.
Overnight stays and reasonable expenses will be covered by the business. If you like the freedom of travelling between jobs and staying away whilst on the job perhaps it’s worth us having a conversation.
In addition, we can offer a starting salary of £26-£27K with regular reviews.
If this is the right opportunity for you, apply today.
