Production Operator

Want to grow and progress your career as part of a rapidly growing organisation? If yes, and you have experience gained within a heavy industrial or engineering environment, we’ll provide you with the training and support you need to succeed in this exciting opportunity to join our friendly team.

Our Company

Less Common Metals (LCM) is a world leader in the manufacture and supply of complex alloy systems and metals, specialising in those based on rare earth elements. With many years’ experience in the production of materials to tight compositional tolerances and controlled microstructures, we take a highly flexible and innovative approach to a wide range of material requirements.

Here at LCM, you’ll be part of a longstanding workforce based at our site in Ellesmere Port, working within a business culture that promotes a healthy work life balance, gives you the freedom to take ownership of your workload whilst working autonomously, and provides plenty of support to enhance your knowledge and skills through self-development.

The Role – Production Operator

Reporting to the Operations Manager, as a Production Operator you’ll work as part of a team producing rare earth alloys and metals in line with customer orders. You’ll achieve this by:

  • Operating plant and equipment to achieve targeted levels of production
  • Ensuring all products / materials within the production areas are clearly identified, packaged, and labelled correctly
  • Providing analysis samples of metals / alloys to the Laboratory
  • Noting any potential equipment problems / failures and carrying out general maintenance checks
  • Maintaining awareness of levels of production related consumables and raw material quality
  • Maintaining a clean and tidy environment to minimise risk of product contamination

Our Requirements – Production Operator

  • Experience gained in a hands-on role within a heavy industrial or engineering environment
  • Exceptional literacy and numeracy skills
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Good understanding of the importance of working to high standards of Quality, Environmental, Health and Safety stewardship
  • Basic IT skills, with working knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel

Although not essential, experience gained within a foundry environment and handling molten metals in a similar Production Operator role would be advantageous.

The Package

As a Production Operator, you’ll benefit from:

  • A starting salary in the region of £20,720 to £22,665, rising to £26,560 with experience
  • 23 days annual leave plus bank holidays (rising to 25 days after 3 years)
  • Employer contributory pension scheme
  • Permanent contract, working full time hours

In Alloy production, shifts patterns will either be 6am to 2pm or 2pm to 10pm (1pm-9pm Friday), alternating weekly.

All applications for this Production Operator vacancy are to be submitted online.
