Temporary Process Operator and Fork Lift Truck Driver Opportunities


Job Description

API Laminates Ltd, part of the API Group is Europe’s longest established and largest producer of paper and board laminates for the packaging of consumer goods.  With over 80 years of experience supplying to premium sectors such as fine spirits, tobacco, confectionary and beauty, we are committed to the highest standards of quality and technical excellence, innovation and supply chain efficiency.  Our scale, experience and collaborative approach mean that we are trusted with the most important lamination projects in the industry, through the branding phase, market launch and ongoing supply.


We currently have 2 excellent opportunities; one for a process operator and one for a fork lift truck driver to join us at our manufacturing plant based in Poynton, Cheshire.   These posts are for an initial 6 month temporary contract working a 2-shift pattern (6am – 2pm, 2pm – 10pm) during the training period and then moving to a 3-shift pattern (6am – 2pm, 2pm – 10pm, 10pm – 6am) once trained. 


In both roles, you will operate and support the production processes to achieve the highest level of quality and efficiency, whilst maintaining the highest standards of care and the application of safe working methods.

The Successful Applicant

We are looking for people who have previous experience of working in a production environment, and who are looking for a new challenge.  With an education to GCSE standard or equivalent, you will have an excellent eye for detail and the ability to understand technical information.  A practical knowledge of process based manufacturing would be advantageous, as is experience of continuous improvement techniques, although this is not essential.  For the fork lift truck driver role, a counterbalance licence is essential.


Full training is provided for this role.  We are looking for people who have a passion to learn, and who want to develop themselves further.  In reward, excellent benefits are offered, including a salary rise on completion of training.
