About Tharsus

We are one of Europe’s fastest growing technology businesses, helping companies develop and manufacture emerging robotic and machine technologies to disrupt, lead and grow their markets.

The business has been developing and evolving for a number of years, recently winning ‘Company Of The Year’. We have come to the end of the beginning of the Tharsus journey and the business is really accelerating.

Our new ‘world-class’ Northumberland HQ facility gives us ample space to mitigate the risk of Coronavirus. We reviewed our workspace from the outset of the pandemic and have been able to continue to operate safely and successfully through social distancing and other prevention measures.

In the last few years we’ve grown massively, we doubled in size last year and are looking for more people who share our passion for technology and innovation to join the team and grow with us.

As part of this we are continuing to develop our NPI and manufacturing teams and are looking for an NPI Technician to join us. We have a great ‘can do’ culture, with our people being given real responsibility early on in their career.

We work in an easily accessible location in Blyth, South East Northumberland.
