Who are we ?

Are you a self-starter who goes the extra mile to meet your customers’ needs? Can you work well as part of a dedicated team? We have a fantastic opportunity for a reliable and self-motivated Operator to join our Glassolutions team in Cardiff.

Glassolutions are part of the Saint-Gobain group and the largest processor and distributor of glass in the UK. We offer a breadth of services unrivalled across the glass industry, supplying and processing glass for a broad range of applications.

What impact will I have in this role?

As an Operator with Glassolutions, you will be responsible for all aspects of glass manufacturing and distribution, from preparing flat-glass products (cutting, edgework, toughening etc.) to loading and unloading products ready for delivery to our customers in the local area.

Your key day-to-day duties will include:

  • Cutting and preparing glass safely and accurately to order using relevant cutting machinery and tools.
  • Assisting with loading of glass to HGVs ready for dispatch
  • Ensuring assigned work areas and machines are kept in an orderly state fit for purpose.
  • Promoting a culture of excellent customer service, ensuring every effort is made to achieve 100% delivery on time in full.

What kind of person are you looking for?

First and foremost, we always want to recruit talented people that align well with our values and way of working; we innovate, we’re Agile, we’re Open & Engaging, we care about and know our customers, and we all try to act as entrepreneurs. As part of the Saint-Gobain group, we’re also committed to empowering and developing our own people wherever possible.

For this role in particular, we will be looking for the following key requirements/skills:

  • Experience working in a small branch/multi-tasking environment
  • Glass working/cutting experience - desirable, but can be trained
  • Customer driven with excellent attention to detail to meet the customer’s needs
  • A self-motivated individual and flexible attitude to work, keen to support their team
  • Overhead crane and FLT training – desirable

The world of work is changing, and at Saint-Gobain we are open to new ways of working in order to attract talented people to our business. We understand that everyone has different needs and commitments. Therefore, we are very open to discuss any flexible requirement or need that you may have for this role. We can’t guarantee to meet all requests for flexibility when we are recruiting. But, we promise to listen.
