About the Welder Fabricator role
Waste containers in good condition are essential for our business, whether on a customer's premises or on site at one of the special events and shows we service. As Welder Fabricator, you'll play a key role behind the scenes, repairing containers to CHEM standards and making parts if required, keeping a close eye on production schedules and maintaining the workshop equipment. The job involves carrying out diagnostic exercises, rectifying faults to a high standard and conducting final testing before the unit goes back into service.

- Comprehensive know-how of the health & safety requirements associated with maintenance activities
- A personality that gets the best out of people, from colleagues to customers
