Reporting into our operations manager, Sewtec is looking for an estimator to join our bespoke automation solutions company.
In this role, you’ll be responsible for creating and optimising the way in which our products are manufactured. You’ll be tasked with ensuring the highest levels of quality, affordability and efficiency are adhered to by preparing accurate machine operation time estimates for the manufacturing of complex components.
Our estimator will always be on top of time, making sure we are working in the best way possible. You’ll be tasked with calculating manufacturing hours through using various cost models and identify methods and techniques around how we can reduce our manufacturing times. Improving how we source raw materials and bought-out parts, and how we sub-contract processes to meet client demand will also be high on your agenda.
From ordering stock through to the delivery of finished parts, you’ll establish and maintain control over tracking of all component parts. As an estimator, you’ll also prepare accurate forecasts to ensure the availability of all required parts.
With at least five years’ of working in manufacturing under your belt, you’ll be an experienced estimator in precision engineering who possesses a strong CNC machining background and has a good working knowledge of CAD/CAM systems. Being fully conversant with modern manufacturing techniques and having the ability to read and interpret mechanical engineering drawings are essential for this role.
You must be a dynamic, enthusiastic individual who has excellent communication skills – you’ll be liaising with the wider Sewtec team and our customers – and you’ll have no problems in seamlessly fitting into a multi-functional team environment. Working on bespoke automation solutions means no two days are the same, so you’ll always be up for a challenge and be passionate about getting stuck into and solving any problems that may arise.
