Role: Frame Development CAD Technician
Date Posted: Wednesday 29 January 2020
A great opportunity has arisen to join an iconic British brand and a dynamic team with big plans!

We are looking for a Frame CAD Technician to join our G Plan Design and Development team at this exciting time of growth.

We’ve been around since 1953, so we know a lot about making the perfect sofa - but we certainly don’t just sit back and rest on our laurels. We strive to improve at every opportunity, driving the business forward and evolving the brand. We are guardians of our heritage but embrace the very latest in technology and innovation.

As a key member of our Development function, you will work alongside your operational and commercial colleagues in our purpose-built Wiltshire head office and manufacturing facility. The heart of the organisation, this is where we proudly hand-make every single G Plan sofa and chair. A G Plan sofa is an investment piece and our consumers know they are buying a sofa designed with the values of enduring comfort and quality at its core.

Reporting to the Design and Development Manager, as the Frame CAD Technician you will design our prototype frames from drawings, working closely with production to ensure frames are cost efficient, easy to produce, fit for purpose and developed on time.
You will also set pay rates and construction methods for production frame assembly personnel, and provide training resource and methods to ensure the smooth introduction of new products.

You will be an experienced operator of SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software.

You will also be able to use excel to a good level.

You will be good at multi-tasking and be able to prioritise a varied workload, providing flexibility within the team.

Excellent communication skills are also essential.

Hours of work for this role are:

7:00 - 4:00 Monday to Thursday and 7:00 - 12:00 Friday.

In return we offer a competitive salary and a range of benefits including 24 days annual leave plus public holidays, company sick pay scheme, company pension scheme and life assurance, cycle to work scheme and staff purchase scheme.
