BAe Systems have a requirement for a Contract Process Engineer to work at their Glascoed site.
A challenging opportunity has arisen at a Munitions facility for a temporary contract Process Engineer, working within a multi-disciplined team involved in the design, manufacture and support of new products.
This role will report directly to the Senior Process Engineer.
The role is responsible for the development of manufacturing processes from concept through to commissioning and qualification.
The successful applicant will have a strong background in manufacturing process development with a working knowledge of PLC controlled manufacturing systems.
Many processes involve the control of powders, liquids or slurries through pressing, casting or extrusion processes therefore knowledge of materials technology or fluids is desirable but not essential. Other processes involve assembly of high precision components.
Specific duties will include the identification and management of process technical requirements, implementation of Safe Systems of Work in line with Company and Statutory requirements and the technical control of the commissioning and qualification process. An important part of the role will be the support of Continuous Improvement activities on existing products and processes, which will involve the planning and introduction of process changes in a controlled and timely manner.
Applicants must be self-motivated, able to demonstrate good planning and organisational skills, have good technical and manufacturing understanding, show initiative and be able to work under pressure.
A good knowledge of statistical techniques for measuring process capability and maintaining process control would be an advantage, including an understanding of Six-Sigma tools and the ability to develop, establish and maintain capable production processes.
