The successful candidate will need to have a keen eye for detail, good manual dexterity, good numeracy and be computer literate. You will be responsible for each job from start to finish and will be required to ensure that the sensors meet our customer’s high expectations.  


We provide a pleasant and relaxed working environment and the Job is varied and challenging.
