Engineering Fitters produce complex high value, low volume components or assemblies in full or part, using machines, equipment, or systems, to the required specifications. Fitters will typically have a mechanical or electrical / electronic bias. Fitters will interpret drawings and plan their work, ensuring they have the right tools, equipment, and resources to complete the task at hand. Fitters will check their work against quality standards and adjust as required based on their knowledge.
As an Engineering Fitter you will learn to interact with line managers/supervisors; depending on the size of the employer and nature of the work you may be part of a team of fitters or eventually working independently. You will also learn to interact with personnel in other functions such as maintenance engineers, health & safety, and quality assurance personnel, as well as internal and external customers.
