Job description

CADagency is delighted to be working with a manufacturing company based in Blackburn. The company designs and manufactures street furniture within its onsite fabrication facilities. Their products range from outdoor seating, litter bins and planters to walkways, canopies and bollards.

For this role you will also be required to manage projects and liaise with clients giving regular project updates and solving issues that arise along the way.

  • Experience with CNC machining and programming
  • Technical aptitude in steel and timber fabrication
  • Demonstrative experience in a high variation, low volume manufacturing environment
  • Ability to communicate equally well with customers and technical staff
  • Self-motivation in personal and departmental development

Advantageous skills:

  • Official SolidWorks certifications as proof of software proficiency
  • In-depth knowledge of SolidWorks custom properties and parametric linking
  • Exposure to SolidWorks Visualisation for creating high-quality rendered images
  • Experience designing products for public spaces (street furniture, playgrounds etc.)
  • Background in steel fabrication
