Our Making technicians play an important role in our manufacturing processes by operating a combination of manual, semi-automatic and automated mixing systems to create lotion product to desired standard. Day-to-day this involves material movement and management, carefully following formulation recipes to produce the lotions needed further down the supply chain, equipment operation, problem-solving and ownership of a system.

In this role you will own overall line/area standards during shifts and find ways to continuously improve. You will be required to clean, operate and maintain equipment to the required standard and precisely follow batch production records with exact record keeping ensuring each batch made is right first time, every time. We are looking for a strong team player who can work collaboratively with teams across an organisation.
