CNC lathe setter / operator

We’re seeking a suitably qualified and/or time-served engineer to join our machine shop team. Experience in CNC setting and operating (FANUC control) including twin spindle multi-axis lathes with driven tooling is required. Experience in offline CAM programming (Gibbs) would be beneficial.

The ideal candidate will have a sound knowledge and experience of traditional machining methods, be able to work to engineering drawings, reading engineering measuring equipment and communicate clearly regarding component development. You will also be assisting with other support activities in a busy machine shop environment.

To apply, please send your CV with an accompanying letter to Mrs A Sadowski, Haigh Engineering Company Ltd, Alton road, Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, HR9 5NG or email

Business administration apprentice

We’re searching for a creative and organised individual to join our marketing team as a business administration apprentice.

As part of the marketing team you’ll be helping drive forward marketing activities that inform and motivate. You’ll be involved in the full spectrum of promotional activities both online and offline so confidence in using computers as a planning, administration, communication and research tool is essential.

We’re continually innovating so good questioning skills, an eye for detail and the ability to write and create engaging content is important. Whilst you’ll be working in a team environment you will have responsibility for your own tasks so a pro-active and independent approach is equally vital.

This is a perfect introduction to anyone who is interested in a marketing, social, digital or sales career. This role is based in Ross on Wye with day-release at HWGTA in Hereford.

Engineering apprentices

We welcome up to three apprentices each year in machining, electrical, fitting or fabrication/welding and are particularly interested in supporting the career aspirations of women into engineering and welcome female applicants.

Candidates should be enthusiastic and well-motivated individuals with a specific interest in engineering processes. You will be expected to achieve or already hold reasonable GCSE grades in five subjects, including maths and English at Grade 4/5 or above.

Successful applicants will be offered an advanced apprenticeship lasting up to four years, starting with a year off-the-job training at Herefordshire & Worcestershire Group Training Association in Holmer Road, Hereford to learn the basics of engineering. Subsequent training will include college day release (for City & Guilds or BTEC National Diploma qualifications) and a NVQ Level 3.

Haigh has a long standing relationship with HWGTA and source all our apprentices through them.  To find out more and to apply, visit or call 01432 377 002.
