Surgical Instrument Maker / Technician / Toolmaker required by manufacturer of surgical instruments / tools based in Rayleigh, Essex. Starting salary of £21,000. Driving an advantage as location is not that near a train station, but is close to local bus routes.

Established over 25 years ago, we are a small, very successful, niche manufacturer of low volume, high quality surgical instrumentation. We relate our success directly to the strength of our teams. To continue operating at our high standards, we're seeking an individual to join as an Instrument Maker.

You will be required to assemble, manufacture and repair various types of micro-ophthalmic surgical instruments. These instruments are used in delicate, micro-surgical ophthalmic procedures using high grade materials and techniques.

Attention to detail is absolutely critical and as the position involves the use of a bench microscope, the candidate may have a background in jewellery/watchmaking or silversmith manufacturing. Alternatively, you may have a keen interest in detailed scale model-making.

The individual will be patient, understanding kinaesthetic skills to have a 'feel' for the product and how the Surgeon or End User would expect the instrument to operate. You will be able to read and comprehend manufacturing documentation: drawings, production orders & specifications or supporting documentation and take ownership to develop and maintain performance with minimal supervision

Full training will be given but we expect you to proactively undertake continuous training and development in accordance with company training accreditation, with an emphasis on self-development.

If you wish to further your career in the field of precision engineering / manufacturing, then please apply now with your CV and a Covering Note

4 weeks annual holiday plus bank holidays
6 months probationary period
