There will be a 3-month probationary period that will be used to test your ability to meet our requirements. A meeting at the 2-month mark will be used as a performance review.

Full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be provided free of charge because of the high levels of dust and heat in the environment. Due to the levels of dust, safety masks must be worn at all times while de-powdering. These masks are fully P3 rated for the level of dust, but they can be slightly restrictive in nature. We advise people that suffer from Asthma or other respiratory conditions to consider this before applying.

If necessary, it would also be a requirement that when wearing the mask the individual must be aware that being clean-shaven is the only way to ensure a proper seal and provide full protection. This is a Health and Safety issue as facial hair can interrupt the seal on the masks and allow particles to bypass the filters.

Please note: This is NOT a role for someone looking to move into creative or 3D design, there will not be progression into other areas of the company, however, there is likely to be progression in the role as well as performance-based pay rises.
