Junior Electronics Assembly Technician

The Role

Due to the continued success of the business, we are looking for an enthusiastic and talented junior electronics technician to join our expanding engineering team on a permanent basis.

It is expected that the successful candidate will be a highly self-motivated individual with a keen eye for detail. The candidate must be a quick learner who is able to work independently and rapidly adapt to the task in hand. You will be responsible for the assembly and test of electronic sensor components and products using a variety of tools and equipment, ensuring that they meet the relevant quality standards.

You will be involved in manufacturing new sensor technologies and ensuring that prototype sensor designs transition from a customer’s R&D project into a controlled production environment. This involves working closely with the application engineering team to produce a prototype sensor design and benchmark its performance. Many of our end customers are involved in motorsport, military, or specialist industries so a general interest in vehicles and aerospace is highly advantageous.

Employment Type:
Permanent/Full Time

Minimum Experience:
Entry Level (Experience beneficial but not essential. Training will be given)

Minimum Qualifications:
GCSE’s in Maths, Science and English (Grades C/5 and above)
