Job Description

This is the ideal opportunity for practical and motivated individual to join a multi-skilled team, within a busy and fast paced production environment, to contribute to the ongoing success of a growing international company.

A great opportunity for anyone with experience as a Manufacturing or Factory Operative, Repair Technician, Assembly Technician, Machine Operator, Wireman, Tester, Production Assistant, or something completely different if you want to train and learn.

Is this a company you can build your career with?

Founded in 1989, TestLink have been providing parts refurbishment services to major ATM providers around the world for over 30 years. We hire people who are upfront and professional, with a passion for service and a think-outside-the-box mentality to help us to understand and exceed the expectations of our customers. Our global success is down to our people, and we will help you to give your all, and get it all, with us. 

By joining us, you will join a team striving to reduce the cost and environmental impact of ATM management by supplying high-quality, reliable ATM parts at a fraction of the cost of direct-from-supplier purchases. Our customers include major banks, independent ATM operators, and ATM service companies who trust TestLink for quality and reliability.

What will your role be?

You will get to use your natural flair for logic and problem solving to deliver the company’s ATM repair function. The Production team has a wide and varied remit, working to repair or refurbish a range of ATM parts and modules. You’ll be taking apart electrical and mechanical components, assessing them, cleaning them, repairing them, testing them and reassembling them. You will have the opportunity to learn several new skills, or advance existing ones, such as fault diagnostics and soldering, as well as gaining experience is different cells with the chance to specialise as you progress.

Is this role right for you?

You will be comfortable using several tools or interested in learning how to. This is a proactive role and would suit you if you like to fix things and enjoy being hands-on.

If you have experience in any roles related to production, repair services or refurbishment, great. If it's from within an electrical or mechanical environment, even better.

We can provide the training if you have the motivation and aptitude.
