CABLEFLOW International Limited are a privately owned business who have built our reputation as the UK’s primary designers and manufacturers of medical supply units used across a global market.

Continued demand for our products drives our growth and expansion necessitates the evolution of our in-house UK manufacturing teams, and we are recruiting.

We are an accredited NHS Procure 22 provider of bedhead services containment systems.

Would you like to be part of a team who are responsible for the safe and quality driven manufacture of our technology led products which are impacting the style of healthcare provision throughout the UK and worldwide?

 What’s it all about?

As a Cableflow Manufacturing Technician you’ll be recognised as an industry specialist.

The work involves some manual handling and some key technical interfaces, but don’t worry if you haven’t been in a factory assembly environment previously as we will train you and you will generally work as part of a fully supervised team, although some individual working requiring initiative and a ‘can do’ attitude is vital.

What will you be doing?

Flexibility is key as you will be expected to work to suit our project flow and release of installation areas across various projects. Occasional Saturday work should be expected although this only occurs in exceptional circumstances.
