Hi all,
My name is Marti and I work as R&D Systems Engineer at Phoenix Inspection Systems Ltd in Warrington (Closer to Birchwood).
We are looking for a mechanical and electrical technician in a permanent position.
The main responsibilities for the role are mechanical assembly and electrical wiring of scanners and controllers. Below you have a more detailed job description. Sadly I don’t have information about salary range or benefits package but if you are interested you will be informed by one of my colleagues.

The company makes, on one side, manual and automated scanners for Non Destructive Testing and on the other side ultra sonic probes.
A big part of our products are bespoke systems, so there’s no really place to be bored!
