Durham Recruiting is currently working on another Working Millwright Team Lead position on the Day Shift available with our partner in Ajax. This is an amazing company that treats their staff with respect, ensures a safe working environment and encourages a collaborative environment for improvement ideas. ** Our client is flexible with shifts if an afternoon or night shift is needed this can be accommodated.  


The Opportunity:


In a nutshell, you will be joining a maintenance team (not currently understaffed) to work on their machines (including robotics) / facility in a successful and growing manufacturing facility. This is a plant that does not put band-aids on its problems, they fix it correctly as soon as possible as to shut a machine down costs too much money. Forward-thinking and encourages ideas on how to make their plant more efficient.


** The ideal person for this role will start off as a part of the team to get to know the facility and will slowly transition into the Team Lead position. Training will be offered to those that have the ambition but not the experience. This is not a position that will ever be a full-time maintenance manager, it will always be a working millwright that will help in strategic planning, scheduling of work and training of staff.


What Stood Out For Us:

What stands out from the moment you walk through the doors of the company is a sense of pride from the senior management/ownership team. The facility is spotless, safety forward, modern and forward-thinking. Everything they do within the facility is to improve the longevity and sustainability of the company.  


Collaborative, hands-on and always working towards lean manufacturing ideas this company does its best to stay ahead of the curve. With new machines around every corner and more on their way, it is an exciting time to come on board.  


Why Choose Our Client:  

  • Permanent Day Shift (if you are looking for an afternoon or night shift this can be accommodated as well – very flexible with their maintenance team

  • Extremely safe, organized and forward-thinking facility – the company has reduced the sound levels so that in only 20% of the plant are earplugs needed which they hope to eradicate in the coming year
  • Collaborative company – if you make a difference and save time/money the company pays out on Christmas bonus’s dependant on your contribution to the overall health of the company  
  • Very involved management, owners are on the plant floor with the team – they are there to support everyone, they don’t believe in hiding in their office, they love what they do and appreciate their staff
