You will also provide support for a wide range of technical issues relating to the production of moulded parts through the Roto Moulding process and the associated post-moulding activities. You will be responsible for the general maintenance of the moulds / tools and machines, as specified in the preventative maintenance schedule, and further ensure that we have the necessary equipment and materials to enable parts to be made on time.

Consequently, opportunities for further career progression and personal growth exist for the successful applicant.

- Maintain Daily Production record sheet and liaise with your Manager on departmental productivity performance.
