What training will I receive?

  • At Siemens we never stop learning, we’re continuously looking for new ways to improve ourselves and our business.
  • In addition to the role specific training, Siemens often has vacancies so that people can apply to work in other departments and business areas.

Whats involved?

The environment can be noisy as you’ll be next to people drilling the blades.

This role involves lots of standing, stretching and lifting always whilst paying close attention to the health and safety of yourself and those around you.

Roles in the plant are safety critical and random drug and alcohol tests will be carried out. Failing this test could result in dismissal.

The person carrying out this role must ensure processes are followed exactly, failure to do this could damage a blade and the cost and lost time of this happening is excessive.

You will be working as part of a team and you’ll need to build excellent relationships.

You must be able to follow instructions exactly as you are directed and not take short cuts or implement process improvements without following the correct procedure.

Is this for me?

Do you like working as part of an elite team where you are striving to ensure you get it exactly right and that you’re the best?

Do you enjoy following processes and have you got an eye for detail and the self motivation to carry out detailed checks probably more often than you actually are required to?

Do you want to work in an environment that encourages physical and mental wellbeing?

Do you want to work for a company that puts your health and safety above all else?

Is quality over quantity important to you?

If so, this could be the job for you.
