Maintaining equipment in good condition and making minor adjustments using production analyses, sampling, and tools when necessary is also a crucial part of the role. Adhering to company guidelines, especially regarding safety, quality, and performance, is essential. Operators wear protective gear and work in a clean room and dry room environment.

The Machine Operator position will be located at the Morrow Industrialization Center in Eyde Energy Park, Arendal. The factory is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2024.

What qualifications are required for this position?

To be a suitable candidate for the Machine Operator position, a minimum of a high school education with a technical background is desirable. Understanding equipment operation in relation to production and energy consumption is also important.

As an operator, you’ll interpret diagrams, procedures, and work instructions and translate them into concrete activities. Holding a forklift license is advantageous.

Attention to detail, a focus on quality, responsibility, and diligence are important traits. Communication skills in both Norwegian and English are necessary. You must also have a valid work permit in Norway.
