If you are someone who thrives working independently as well as part of a larger team, Blue Arrow wants to hear from you. With a proven track record, you will be given more autonomy in your production line role, and there is opportunity to move up the ranks and supervise your own team.

General skills
As a Production Operative you will have:

  • Close inspection and strong attention to detail
  • Good concentration skills
  • Manual dexterity and good using your hands
  • Basic computer skills (based on the increase of productivity and quality measurement through supply chain software applications)

  • Good problem solving
  • Methodical worker; ability to listen to instructions and carry them out step-by-step, in the right order
  • Reasonably good health as this role requires the individual to stand on their feet for most of a shift. It may also be necessary to move and lift heavy items safely

Personal traits

You will be/have:

  • Self-motivated and driven by targets (these may be by number of items assembled, or work completed per hour)
  • Flexibility and appetite to learn; it's common to be moved around to learn different lines in the section of the factory
  • Reliable and punctual for every shift
  • Able to take a methodical approach and learn on the job
  • A positive person who can take initiative where appropriate
  • Leadership or team management skills are a bonus

  • Set up and use machinery, as well as working with hand tools
  • Meet personal as well as group/team performance objectives
  • Responsible for loading raw goods or materials onto the line, checking various checkpoints such as operating temperatures, overseeing the packaging of items, or conducting quality checks on products
  • Maintain a clean and safe environment at all times
  • Report any problems with the machinery or packing to your supervisor

Shifts

Rotating shift patterns made up of:

06:00-14:00

£18,278 Per annum, plus a £2098 night shift allowance and overtime potential

Desirable:

  • A good level (GCSE or equivalent) of Maths and English would be useful
  • Any experience of working in a factory or warehouse and/or stacking shelves and organising stock in a retail role will also have given lots of skills that are relevant to an Production Operative role
