Vacancy

Acquisition based on this advertisement is not appreciated. We usually fill the vacancies ourselves and in exceptional cases we work with preferred suppliers.

As an Assembly Employee at EuroSort, you are responsible for the assembly and mounting of various parts for sorting machines. Think of frames, carriers and sub-assemblies. You do this together with your team on the basis of supplied drawings.

Theoretically, there are four different types of sorting machines; all built slightly differently depending on the customer’s wishes. A machine is usually built in a few weeks. You do this in teams, where everyone works on a different part. Quality control is also an important part of your work: you check your team members’ work and vice versa. You do this using a checklist and work instructions. At the end of the day, you make sure the workplace is tidy and clean.

You are part of the Assembly team, which consists of about twenty colleagues. The team is managed by the Workshop Head and three Supervisors.

If you like to be technical and find it a challenge to finish machines before the deadline, then this is a job for you.

Working week

Assembly Employee

On an enjoyable working day, you and the team have ensured a machine is finished timely and can be transported to the customer.

On a less enjoyable working day, there is a major error in the construction drawing preventing you from continuing with your work. You decide to start on another part, but it feels annoying when you can't finish something.

Firsthand experience

During assembly, a part does not fit. You see that there is an error in the construction drawing. What do you do?

In cases like this, you consult with the Supervisor about possible solutions. Often he knows how you can solve the problem and which parts you should use to ensure it does fit. Depending on your experience, you may be able to solve small errors yourself. If there are major errors, the drawing must go back to the drawing board, so that the Engineers can adjust it.

Growth

EuroSort considers personal development very important. Therefore there are many possibilities to attend education, training and courses. At the moment, EuroSort is developing a training policy to make this more concrete.

From controlling various sensors, actuators, motors and servo drives, to communication between different systems, such as servers, HMI and cameras.

Why did you decide to work for this company?
I started in 2011 as an Engineer at EuroSort. In addition, I did project-related purchases. Due to the dynamic growth of EuroSort, I have gradually started to concentrate and professionalize myself more in the field of purchasing. Partly because the organization feels great, from which we get satisfaction together, this is a huge stimulus to develop myself further and to keep the enthusiasm high. This is an advantage of EuroSort for me!
