Production Operative Shoeroom Factory

The Cobbs Lane Factory is the birthplace of the Dr. Martens Brand. Our Made In England collection is the pinnacle of the product range pyramid that has been at the forefront of innovation and quality in the Boot and Shoe Industry since 1960. This role would have you performing vital operations in the factory as part of the production team. You would be skilled in inspection and finishing processes in The Shoeroom. Your eye for detail will ensure our standards are met for bulk, prototype and sample footwear production. The role reports directly to the Production Supervisor.

You will be a target driven and focused, skilled shoeroom hand who is prepared to be flexible and perform many of the steps required to achieve on time delivery and the highest standards of production in Dr. Martens boots and shoes. You will be able to demonstrate the following:
  • A passion for our product and the ability to perform a range of the operations required to finish products to our high standards
  • Timely performance of finishing operations on varying materials and finishes in large quantities  
  • A strong focus on safety in every aspect of factory work is essential with PPE and correct training and handling observed at all times
  • A direct approach to addressing all quality issues, production errors and equipment problems. We’ll need you to recognise and refer to Factory Management any issues immediately so that resources are not wasted
It goes without saying that everyone at Dr. Martens is a team. Everyone is expected to take on other duties as needed.

It’s never just a job at Dr. Martens.  It’s a way of life. We live and breathe our Fundamentals - INTEGRITY. PROFESSIONAL. PASSIONATE. TEAM PLAYERS.  They define who we are and how we get the job done. We believe each role is as unique as the person who does it. To be one of our Footwear Production Operatives you will also possess these qualities:
  • Professional approach to manufacturing and the risks involved in operating machinery
  • Focus on delivering to target and adapting to the needs of the production environment quickly
  • Natural team player who can understand their role within the group and the goals of the team as a whole
  • Keen to learn more and more on the job about our product and how it can be made and improved

Our Company culture is one of encouraging an appreciation for those possessing a proud sense of self-expression. Our British origins give us a self-deprecating sense of humour; yet we are unashamedly focused about the business of making high quality boots and shoes.

At Dr Martens we do things a bit differently. We aren’t a corporate brand. We don’t mind how you dress, if you have piercings or tattoos, or if you dye your hair. We love the things that make us original that no-one can imitate. Our customers are all different, so it makes sense that our people are too – We want to inspire the next generation of DM’s wearers and they will come from all walks of life!
