Become an Assembler

If you have a passion for electronics and an interest in what we're doing here at icanhire, why not consider becoming a Phoenix Module Assembler?

With basic soldering skills and a reasonable understanding of electronic circuits, you can set up a mini assembly line from home and start earning a bit of extra income. For the keen electronic hobbyist, its kind of like being paid to build lego!

How It Works

First, you'll need to apply here, telling us a little about yourself. We'll review your application and let you know if you make it through to the next stage.

We'll then send you the components to build one module. Full assembly instructions are provided online. Warm up the iron and get assembling! Once its built, test it using the testing device provided and if you're happy it works, send it back to us. We'll then inspect the module to ensure it works and has been assembled properly. We'll then send your first payment.

If we're happy with the quality of the assembly and you're happy to continue, we'll then send components for five kits. If you can maintain the quality of build over multiple assemblies and return fully operational modules inside of the deadline, then you're officially on the team. Future assembly kits will normally be sent in batches of 10.

Assembly jobs are offered out to the team as and when batches of vehicles are added to our system. You are under no obligation to accept an assembly job offered but if you do, we're very fussy when it comes to completing the builds within the deadline. So if you don't think you can do the job in time because of other commitments, please don't accept it!

What You'll Need

As a keen electronics hobbyist, you'll probably have most of the equipment needed to become an assembler. A recommended list of items would be:

  • Soldering Iron (not Cold Heat or Battery Powered)
  • 60/40 Lead Solder
  • Desolder Pump (Correct the inevitable mistake!)
  • Basic Multimeter
  • Small Circuit Board Holder / Third Hand
  • Wire Strippers
  • Good hobby knife
  • Assortment of small screwdrivers
  • Assortment of pliers

How Long - How Much - How Many?

Your first module will probably take about an hour to assemble and test properly. When assembling 5 or 10 at a time, expect each one to take about 30 minutes. We pay £20 per competed and tested module. So for 10 modules, that's £200 for about 5 hours work. However, don't get too excited - we don't yet have the volume to keep you going full time. You can expect between 5 and 10 module builds a week, maybe more, maybe less.

If you are interested in earning a bit of extra cash, have a basic understanding of electronics and can wield a soldering iron with a basic degree of skill then this could be the ideal opportunity for you. If so, Apply Now. We have a limited number of openings available at this time, so don't put it off!
