Vacancy - sewing machinist

Job description

We are a busy growing business in the Uplands village of Swansea, making traditional sewn and quality printed flags in house and we're looking for new team members with lots of great attitude and potential to join us as we expand.

Specifically we're looking for sewing machinists with solid experience of domestic and/or industrial sewing machines, flat bed and zigzag - if you have a knack and are efficient, organised, methodical, have an attention to detail and want to work as part of a growing team, this may suit you down to the ground.

An eye for detail and quality finish for this role is absolutely essential and we're interested more in the right attitude and personality than qualifications and CVs.

This may suit someone wanting to work around school hours or on a flexi basis. If you're aged between 16 and 24 years old we have routes to employment which we can help you with. If you're retired and love to sew, this might be right up your street. (Our 'least young' employee is 69 and amazing!).

If you're looking for a great work environment, have a positive upbeat 'can do attitude' and want to work for us doing this job (rather than just any old job), please get in touch.

It is important that you research what this company does before you apply so you know what we're about.

If you'd prefer to speak to us, please call us on 01792 466732.  We may call you back at a later time depending on how busy we are when you call.  Our number is 01792 466732.

If you prefer to write, then email a covering letter with your application explaining what you like about the sound of this job, your experience and your availability to recruitment@reddragonflagmakers.co.uk.

Timewasters need not apply. Previous applicants and trainees will be considered but do need to re-apply with updates.

All roles are flexi time (around school times etc), and we pay £7.50 to £9 ph (age appropriate and dependent on experience), 28 days p.a. pro rata and training is given on the job if required. You can work one day a week or five, dependent on experience and output.  Two months initial probation, eight stage training programme, potential to earn more once you've earned your stripes and the rest is up to you.

Red Dragon is a social enterprise, an equal opportunities employer, a certified disability confident employer and living wage employer.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Job Type: part-time, flexi time / full time
