  • Working together. Building your future.

    This is where mechanical and electrical engineering meet and it’s as exciting as it gets. Robotics, electronics, product engineering and more. Fixing the machines that make our machines. Doesn’t get much more important than that, does it? Without you, things won’t just grind to a halt they’ll stay that way. Every time a problem arises, you’re right there, on the job. Yes, it will be highly pressurised at times, but the career you’ll develop will be amazing and really important in our business’s future. 

    We’re after people who don’t panic when things don't go to plan, but take to it with heads-down seriousness and a get-things-done approach. People who can think on their feet and solve problems methodically and logically. You’ll love the idea of being around JCBs and the machines that make them. And you’ll understand the seriousness of a paused production line and the impact it can have on our bottom line, so you’ll be the kind of person who’s always raring to go.
