Production Operatives

I joined Econ with limited experience in manufacturing, but my strong work ethic and energy secured me a role within the 1st line production team. My attention to detail and ability to work as part of a busy team got me a progression from the Linshen finishing machine to the Byrostar laser machine operation. My outputs form the backbone of all builds in the factory, so the careful and accurate interpretation of work schedules, choosing the right materials and ability to communicate with other departments are key to success in this role.

As a qualified machinist within this team, you will be responsible for forming the core vehicle components, so experience in a similar precision industry and working to tight tolerances under pressure is imperative.

Hire & Service

I joined from school and have now completed a rigorous two year programme of ‘on the job’ training.  Working as part of the service team, I work alongside the mechanical engineers and am responsible for maintaining and repairing the Econ fleet. My daily routine includes checking the work sheets and liaising with the mechanical engineers to schedule my tasks to coincide with particular vehicle pit times. As part of the service team, you need to be good communicator, have a systematic approach to problem solving and enjoy working as part of a team.

Senior Electrical Engineers will be qualified in Electrical Engineer (ONC or above / full technical apprenticeship). And have a proven track record as an Electrical Engineer working in an engineering/manufacturing environment.

Customer Accounts

To be part of the busy Accounts Team at Econ, you will need to have obviously need to be good with numbers and possess a great attention to detail.
