The Candidate

The successful candidate/s will be responsible for and tasked with programming customer orders for tube laser cutting machines.  

They will be expected to converse politely and efficiently with customers ensuring high expectations are met. 

The ability to work well in and collaborate witinh a team is essential, but candidates must also be confident to work from their own initiative to handle enquiries and problem solve complex engineering solutions using tube laser cutting capabilities.

Day to day responsibilities will include:

  • 3D Programming of customer parts. 
  • Progress customer orders using effective time management and organisational skills. 
  • Support and problem solve customer queries/challenges at every opportunity using creativity and manufacturing techniques. 
  • Maintain a high level of service and reliability throughout all customer contact and internal team collaboration. 
  • Where time allows the successful candidate will be encouraged to experiment and get creative with machine capabilities to look at new products, sample pieces of work, and new customer markets.
