SRS Blog > Situations vacant - November 2018

Published 5th November 2018

Topics: Workshop.
With the launch of "General Gordon" and continuing work on the new "BS2" range of large locomotives, along with an unprecedented amount of repair and overhaul work going through the workshop these days, we are looking to expand our current team of nine.
The positions are full time, with flexible working hours possible. We work 0900-1700 Monday to Thursday and 0900-1500 on Friday, with a half hour for lunch. We offer 25 days holiday per year, in addition to Bank Holidays. A full UK driving licence would be highly advantageous.
If you are interested in joining Station Road Steam, in the first instance email with a brief outline of your experience and skills that will help us continue to lead the field - both in servicing and supplying second hand engines and building world class new locomotives!
Our current vacancies are:
We need an experienced engineer, familiar with all aspects of running, maintaining and/or building steam engines in the scales we deal in. An ability to work on your own initiative, diagnose and rectify faults - including the manufacture of one-off parts as required in the machine shop - is essential.
CNC programmer/machinist
We need an experienced CNC programmer/machinist. Ideally with knowledge of steam engines, although utter brilliance at the job, ambition and a constant desire to make things in better ways would be ok too.
We invest regularly in new CNC machines - the latest 750LR machining centre arrived three months ago, to join a pair of 560 machining centres and CT52 turning centre. These all run Siemens controllers, we have a 2500 mill and 1630 lathe running Prototrak controllers, these two used for prototyping and one-off parts. Offline programming is by Fusion 360.
Have a look at the things we make - if you think you can make them as well (or better) we'd like to talk to you!
Warehouse worker
Part time or full time, we need somebody to book stock in and out of the warehouse, print out the barcode tags which we use to keep track of everything, scan engines into the system and pack and despatch items as they sell. It needs somebody with a strong streak of tidiness who can keep the aisles clear and shelves organized, along with attention to detail in making sure that the right thing is packed in the right box. Familiarity with stacker trucks and a fork lift would be useful although not essential - training is available.
