Brompton Bicycle Ltd has a small but expanding satellite site in Sheffield (‘BFL’) with eight operators responsible for welding titanium bicycle frame components as found on our lightweight bicycle models. The Sheffield operation is a Joint Venture with a local aerospace company.
This role will be the primary operations support for the entire Sheffield outfit. The work will be mainly manufacturing engineering based and will include short-term production support and longer-term continuous improvement projects, but there will also be incidental tasks which cover material supply, logistics and quality. This role will have no immediate managerial duties, it will work alongside the Production Manager who is responsible for the welding operators.
Brompton’s main factory is in Greenford, West London and this is where the Manufacturing Engineering team is based. The position will report to the London team; they will likely spend half their time on site in Sheffield and the other half in London, sometimes with long periods at either site (accommodation will be provided). For this reason, we will consider candidates based in Sheffield or London.
