Lead mechanical fitter

Sewtec is seeking a lead mechanical fitter to join our bespoke automation solutions company in Yorkshire.

In this hands-on role you’ll be tasked with leading a small team of mechanical fitters, providing them with support, guidance and know-how when required. You’ll also take up a mentoring position with the mechanical fitters to aid the development of their skills and knowledge of working in a precision engineering environment.

As lead mechanical fitter, you’ll head up the installation of machinery on a customer’s premises through interpreting, assembling and fitting components and parts by adhering to the engineering drawings. Operating tools, equipment and machinery to assemble the bespoke automation solutions will be a big part of your day-to-day role and you’ll promote the highest levels of health and safety. To ensure all our policies and procedures are being followed, you’ll conduct risk assessments on all machinery.

Throughout the project lifecycle, you’ll liaise and work in partnership with the client and client technical team to provide updates, so having the confidence to speak with figures from outside our team is key. A proactive individual, you’ll be a lead mechanical fitter who is keen to take on more responsibility and help us become a more efficient business through improving practices and processes.

You’ll be competent and confident in all technical aspects of mechanical engineering and your employment history will have provided you with the experience of working in a multi–skilled environment where you’ve developed a knowledge of electrical and pneumatic components. Having the ability to read, understand and interpret engineering drawings is a must.

Our team at Sewtec prides itself on its enthusiasm towards innovation, so you must be willing to work towards creating new ways to solve problems. No two of our projects are the same, meaning getting stuck into new challenges is part of your daily remit, so we can deliver the best results for our clients.
