Machine Operator

About this job.

Colombo BV

Will you be our upcoming technical talent? Do you know how to be the hub of a smooth production process in no time? Do you get a kick out of technology and feel completely in your element as an operator? Then this is the opportunity for you! At Colombo B.V., we are looking for an enthusiastic liquid/powder line operator to join our team.

Your role as a Machine-operator:

As a machine operator for our liquid/powder lines, you are at the heart of our production process. You are the technician, the efficiency guru, and the quality champion. Your task? Setting up, operating, and converting our production lines. Keeping everything running smoothly is the name of the game, so you always stay in sync with colleagues regarding the supply of packaging materials, raw materials, and semi-finished products.

If the machines throw a small tantrum and disrupt things, you are the fixer-upper who ensures our end product is always top-quality. And yes, keeping your workspace and machines spick and span is part of the job. Additionally, you will also be handling the products themselves, such as placing them on the production lines or filling them. Your education is not the most important aspect; having the right personality for our team is.

You completely recognise yourself in this profile:

  • You have experience in operating, setting and adjusting machines, preferably for processing powders and/or liquids.
  • You have an interest in technology and enjoy working with it.
  • You possess a keen essential sense of quality and a commitment to safety.
  • You are comfortable with repetitive production tasks.
  • You enjoy working independently but have a team spirit to help your colleagues when needed.
  • You also enjoy diversifying your daily activities and acquiring new skills.
  • You are flexible with an infectious drive and a good dose of enthusiasm.
  • You enjoy working independently but have a team spirit to help your colleagues when needed.
  • Coincidentally already possess a valid forklift or reach truck certificate? If so, we consider that a nice bonus!

You are armed with the following skills:

  • You have the ability to think and work at vocational education level.
  • We are happy if you already have work experience in this field, but you are also very welcome as a starter!

Your work environment at Colombo:
Colombo B.V. specializes in professional products for aquariums, ponds, and terrariums. With 30+ years of experience and continuous research in our Colombo Lab, we’re dedicated to delivering top-notch products. Our philosophy prioritizes the health of fish and animals through superior habitat, nutrition, and supplements. In our small, tight-knit team, we take pride in producing quality products, working collaboratively, and enjoying our time together. Every day at Colombo brings something new, ensuring there’s never a dull moment!

Please note that acquisition in response to this job advertisement is not appreciated.
