Welding Fabricator

Welding Fabricator
Applicants for work at Advanced are expected to have previous exposure to welding processes such as TIG, Arc, laser, friction and butt with both non-tubular and tubular uses. While junior welders only need basic experience of cutting and fabrication, more senior incumbents are required to work from blueprints and written specifications

While no formal school qualifications are needed to secure a position in the industry, candidates should have good numeracy and mechanical skills as well as be able to work at heights or in confined spaces. Preference is often given to those with NVQ or CSCS certification.

Welders perform various forms of welding. These include Manual metal, Oxyacetylene, and Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding. The job of a Welder involves working with metals, copper, brass, pipes, steel, iron and any material that is required to be melted, heated, or fused.

You may work alone in workshops or on a construction site. This job can be very dangerous and Welders are required to wear safety gear and follow the necessary health and safety guidelines.

A Welder usually performs many of the following tasks:

  • Conducting inspections
  • Specialising in different areas of welding
  • Using mechanised systems and metal inert gas (MIG) welding
  • Performing hand welding
  • Analysing engineering drawings
  • Cutting and joining material
