Production Operative - Packing

Our Packing Production Operatives are responsible for layering materials (fibreglass and balsa wood) into the blade moulds according to specifications and sequences set out by our engineers prior to casting the blade.

Our blades will be 75metres long and will be installed offshore on some of the biggest planned Wind Farms in the UK and Europe.

We are looking for candidates who possess very high levels of attention to detail with the ability to follow instructions in a logical and safe manner. If you have a passion for delivering quality and work well within a team environment this could be the job for you.

Previous experience working within a manufacturing environment is desirable, however we will also consider candidates who can demonstrate their ability to follow instructions and work well within a team environment.

What training will I receive?

Whats involved?

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

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

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

You will be working as part of a close 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.

In this role there is an 18 stone weight limit as standing in the moulds if above this weight could cause faults so please be willing to be weighed during your medical.

Is this for me?

Do you like working as part of a closely knit 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?

Is quality over quantity important to you?

Are you able to cope with tasks that may be repetitive?

Are you interested in a job that is physically demanding?

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?

If so, this could be the job for you.

Why our environment, health & safety is important

All employees should be constantly aware of their responsibilities for ensuring a workplace where EHS is the top priority. They should engage with both Line Managers and the EHS Team to ensure that, where practicable, they are familiar with the Siemens EHS management system.

As an employer of choice Siemens takes its responsibility for the health, safety and welfare of all people seriously: as such you will be required to undertake a pre-employment medical screening to enable us to provide a duty of care towards potential and existing employees.

The recruitment process

You will have a face to face interview and you will be asked to give examples of things you have done to show us what level of skills and experience you have and as importantly, tells us what behaviours you think are important.

There may also be a dexterity test to how well you’re able to handle basic tools and equipment and how well you can follow instructions.

You may be asked to complete an online behavioural questionnaire and have a physical test that in addition to your general wellbeing and weight will show your level of strength and flexibility.

It’s very important that we collaborate and work as a team so you may be asked to complete a difficult task with others and we’ll watch you to give us an indication of how you interact with others.

If you are asked to participate in an interview process please try to relax and be yourself.
