Sewing machinists wanted

By Alpkit

2016 was a great year for our cosy little factory here at Alpkit HQ. Demand for our bike luggage was high which kept the factory team incredibly busy and saw the team grow so they could manage to squeeze out some updates to existing products, as well as release a couple of new ones. We're extremely proud of how our little slice of UK microfacturing has developed and 2017 is looking really exciting as to where the next step will take us for UK made outdoor equipment. This means we need to start thinking about recruiting more staff and first up for 2017 is an oppurtunity for machinists.

So Alpkit is a small team with excellent customer service, where high quality products are the bread and butter of our business and you will be an important part of what we do. We have a relaxed working environment where; tea and coffee is to hand, decent music plays, but when there’s suff to do we knuckle down and get the job done.

Our products are built to last and therefore we are looking for a new full time member of the team with experience of using automatic lockstitch sewing machines, who is self-motivated and will take pride in producing high-quality outdoor products. You will be taking product from the very start to the very end. Candidates must have excellent communication skills, good timekeeping with a keen eye for detail and quality.

What you'll get up to...

The handling of raw materials supplied to work streams.
Delivery and set up.
Heavy duty lock stitch.
Binding.
Inspection of finished products.

and it'd be really good if you could be a bit like this...

Experience working with Industrial Sewing Machines.
Good standard of manual dexterity.
Good time keeping.
Fastidiously organised and work in a fast paced environment.
Ability to work to written instructions.
Keen attention to detail.
Flexible.
Previous work experience within the textile industry would be advantageous

If you're interested then drop your CV to us along with a covering letter/email explaining why you would like to be part of the team.
