Job Description

A foreman experienced with composite boatbuilding is required to join one of the UKs best known boatbuilders.

Following a huge shift and evolution of their manufacturing processes, the organisation is now on a strong course for success, with a strong forward order book and new releases planned for the coming 2-3 years. As part of the improvements in process and quality, composite manuacturing has come under close scrutiny and is seeing a staffing increase across a number of areas.

The role of Foreman will report directly into the Composites Manager, with the following duties required:

- Liaision with the Composites Manager on technical requirement, orders and timscales
- Management and leadership of a team of around 20 staff of varying abilities
- Ownership of the overall infusion and layup processes
- Shipwrighting work, to include installation of reinforcements, bulkheads and basic deck parts

This is a great chance for someone currently in a senior role but looking to take their first proper step into management. You'll be joining a high profile brand and be helping to drive change in an industry that to date has lacked this. You'll have worked within a production composite boatbuilding facility and be fully comfortable with resin infusion, showing clear leadership ability and a desire to move your career forwards.

On offer will be a starting rate of £15/hr, progression to £17/hr on successful completion of your probationary period.
