The broad purpose of the occupation is to manually weld plate and structural components to high standards of quality. This will involve fabrication, construction or repair of fabricated plate assemblies, extrusions and structural components (e.g. Channel, H-Beams, I-Beams etc.) used often used to fabricate larger components and assemblies. Plate welders will weld to internationally recognised quality standards using more than one manual arc welding process from Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG), Plasma Arc Welding (PAW), Manual Metal Arc (MMA), Metal Inert Gas (MIG)/Metal Active Gas (MAG) and Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) on more than one material group from Carbon Steel, Low Alloy Steel, High Alloy Ferritic/Martensitic Steel, Austenitic Stainless Steel, Nickel & Nickel Alloys, Aluminium & Aluminium alloys, Titanium & Titanium Alloys, Copper & Copper Alloys.
VR Group, based in Hamilton, are currently seeking Experienced Plate welders for a large civil engineering project in Edinburgh.
This job is working on a large civil engineering project in Edinburgh city centre. There is limited parking available, but is less than 10 minutes walk from Edinburgh Waverley Train Station. The entire project is expected to take just over 2 years to complete.
Hours of work will be Monday to Friday every week, starting at 07:30 each morning until 18:00 each evening. Some overtime will be available while the light nights are here.
