Machinist/fitter

  • £31,468 pa + overtime opportunity
  • Sittingbourne, Kent
  • Mid Kent Electrical Engineering

Mid Kent Electrical Engineering Co (MKE) is the South East’s largest independent Electrical/Mechanical engineering company with 3 sites across Kent and Essex. Due to recent expansion and acquisition of a long-term contract with a major utility company, the company is looking for an experienced Machinist/Fitter to join the team at our head office in Sittingbourne.

Based in our machine shop the role will include manufacturing and repairing industrial components large and small using manual and CNC machinery. The ability to produce components cost effectively from technical drawings is a must in this challenging machining environment. Joining the team of skilled machinists will involve using ‘best practice’ techniques to produce quality parts or repairs within short lead times.

Experience programming CNC machinery is advantageous but not essential. The ideal candidate will have previous experience operating large lathes and milling machines in a bespoke manufacturing environment.

You will need to be flexible with your hours as MKE operate a 24/7 365 repair service both in house and on customer sites.

Candidates should have appropriate qualifications to fulfil the role, gained ideally through an apprenticeship or other accredited learning scheme.

MKE is an equal opportunities employer and does not discriminate on the grounds of age, race, gender or disability. In order to apply for this position you must be able to prove your eligibility to live & work in the UK (e.g. birth certificate, passport, NI number).
