We are growing our Maintenance Department at our busy Wellingborough facility and are looking for a talented and experienced Maintenance Technician to support our 2 shift system of earlies and lates.

Autocraft Machining Solutions’ 7,000sqm facility in Wellingborough is home to the group’s medium to high volume machining capability. AMS specialises in cylinder head & block machining, bed plates, ladder frames, EV motor & transmission casings, and structural BIW components. We have over 50 CNC machine tools, plus CMM and ancilliary equipment.


You’ll need a strong CNC machine tool maintenance background, as the majority of your time will be spent on both preventative and reactive maintenance on our wide range of 3-, 4- & 5-axis CNC machining centres. You’ll be very skilled at fault-finding and repairing components, you’ll relish the challenge in this!

Previous experience working with CNC machining centres is therefore essential, and in particular Matsuura, Heller and Grob will be advantageous. You’ll know your way around Siemens and Fanuc CNC controls, and will be committed to safe working within the boundaries of these machine tools.

In addition to the CNC machining centre maintenance, you’ll also be maintaining assembly equipment, and even undertaking general building maintenance, so experience in all forms of maintenance is required.

(Please do not apply unless you have CNC machine tool maintenance experience, as it is essential for this role and unfortunately those without this relevant experience will not be considered). 


  • A completed apprenticeship in Engineering is desirable, preferably NVQ Level 3 or higher in Maintenance Engineering (Mechanical or Electrical)
  • Proven track record in maintenance of CNC machine tools
  • Multi skilled in both electrical and mechanical disciplines
  • Strong background in planned preventative maintenance systems
  • A tidy, organised person committed to continuous improvement


If you meet all the requirements above, please submit your CV detailing all your relevant experience and qualifications with a covering letter in the box below, or email to Good luck!
