Permanent Production Operative, Dumfries

Alpha Solway Ltd is a leading manufacturer of Personal Protective Equipment based in South West Scotland. Due to the continued expansion of our new manufacturing facility in Dumfries we are excited to be recruiting for permanent Production Operatives to join our team.

Our Production Operatives work 37.5 hours per week on a 3 week rolling shift pattern of 6am to 2pm, 2pm to 10pm and 10pm to 6am Monday to Friday. Therefore, you’ll need to be over 18 to apply as the role involves working a night shift.

When you join our team, you’ll be part of the production of both face masks and face shields and as our factory continues to grow, you’ll see our products and processes grow and develop too.

If your application is successful, your main tasks will include:

  • The operation of production machines to produce the finished products in an efficient manner
  • Assembly and packing of face shields on our production line
  • Packing of finished products into boxes ready for dispatch
  • Maintaining health and safety of both yourself and your colleagues

You’ll work to both individual and team targets whilst maintaining excellent quality standards and you should enjoy working as part of a motivated team.

Your hourly rate will be £9.30 per hour and you’ll be paid a 15% shift allowance on the hours your work on the night shift. - The rates of pay for the Production Operative roles are increasing to £9.50 from 1st April 2021.

If you've applied before and been unsuccessful, I'm sorry that we've decided that you're not the right person for the role, so ask that you don't apply this time.
