Operations Coordinator – Steel/Engineering/Fabrications Job at Cardiff Galvanizers – in Cardiff

Job Description

About Cardiff Galvanizers

Cardiff Galvanizers is a family run independent who has recently celebrated its 50th anniversary in the galvanizing industry. We have gone through many changes over the years, growing from strength to strength to become one of the most modern galvanizing facilities in the United Kingdom in recent years. This growth has been well supported by our team of industry experts who are always on hand to offer advice to our customers.

Our company is richly steeped in history, originally holding a worldwide patent for an in-house product, “The Cox’s Hatchcover Band”, which was widely used in the shipping industry. Since then, we have grown to become one of the only independent galvanizers in the UK to deliver a full in-house service to customers following the introduction of Galvablast, offering galvanizing, shotblasting, wet painting, thermal metal spraying, and powder coating.

About the Role

We are looking for an Operations Coordinator who will be involved in all business areas and will assist in directing business operations throughout both our galvanizing plant and Galvablast. This is a trainee position with the view of you progressing to management (and further!).

This role does not require previous experience as we will provide full training. However, an engineering background is desirable due to the technical nature of the role, as well as operations/supervisory experience.

Reporting into the General Manager and ultimately the Commercial Director, this varied role offers the successful applicant the opportunity to learn all business areas where you will undergo on-the-job training with each department manager to gain a strong understanding of each of the technical processes involved in running a protective coatings business successfully. Our departments include the galvanizing plant; transport; maintenance; and Galvablast.

Once you have completed your on-the-job training, you will also be assisting the Commercial Director and General manager with sales. You will offer a consultative approach to our customers using your technical expertise to ensure they receive the most appropriate solution with the highest quality finish. As part of this, you will be expected to visit customer sites 1-2 times each week and so there will be a degree of travel involved in the role. You will also assist in producing quotes and so the ability to read technical drawings is desirable.

There is significant potential for long-term career progression with this role and we intend to commit to training the successful applicant to be a technical expert within Cardiff Galvanizers. For this reason, we are looking for an ambitious and loyal individual who is looking for a role where they can advance their career internally.

The Successful Candidate will:

· Be ambitious and loyal

· Have previous supervisory/operations experience

· A background in engineering or steel/metal fabrications

· The ability to read a technical drawing is desirable

· Have a valid driving license

What We Offer

· Salary negotiable, dependent on experience

· Significant potential for long-term career advancement

· Access to a wealth of knowledge through our team of industry experts

· A family-run, positive, friendly and supportive office culture with various social events throughout the year

· It is office based – a benefit to those who would like to escape from the past year of home working

If this sounds like you, please apply with your CV today!
