  • Working across a range of areas, you will be involved in the testing of high-integrity components through all stages of life.
  • You will operate as part of a close-knit team with technical excellence and customer satisfaction high on the agenda and be responsible for developing and implementing new methods of non-destructive examination, using bespoke remotely operated machines.

  • Experience in the operation of automated ultrasonic testing (AUT) systems or similar would be favourable.
  • A demonstrable ability to work in a highly technical environment, in multidisciplinary teams and to tight deadlines is required.
  • The ability to provide clear, concise and accurate technical reports. Candidates experienced in the production of technical justifications will be at a distinct advantage.
  • A degree in mechanical engineering or physics is desirable.

We offer excellent development prospects, along with a competitive salary and exceptional benefits. These include bonus, employee support assistance and employee discounts.
